The definitive doyenne of the Hi-NRG scene, Essex-born Hazell Dean found mainstream success in 1984 with the #6 hit ‘Searchin’ (Gotta Find A Man)’ on the Proto label. The Stock Aitken Waterman-produced follow-up, ‘Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go)’, reached #4, giving the Hit Factory team their first Top Ten single and marking the beginning of a partnership with Hazell which continued until 1991. After the release of her 1985 album “Heart First”, Hazell signed with EMI and a succession of releases over the next three years culminated with “Always”, widely regarded as her best work. Hazell released an album last year on Energise Records, as well as maintaining her profile as an evergreen club performer.
