Mark Haze


Chart Topping Rock Singer and Idol

Mark was signed to Universal records with whom he released his chart-topping debut solo album, titled, ‘Where Angels fear to fly’. The album was toured consistently for 2 years and enjoyed huge radio success with its 7 radio singles. 

His first single, ‘Out of my head’ was the most downloaded song in 2011 on the SA download chart; his 2nd single, ‘Alone’ was playlisted by SABC TV and Multichoice;  his 3rd single ‘Wake Up’ went to number 1 on the Kia Take40SA chart where it stayed for a record breaking 23 weeks, when it was finally retired – this holds the record for the longest time an SA musician has stayed on the chart. 

Each successive single made top 10 status on several radio stations in SA, while the track ‘Shake what your Mama gave you’ was chosen to be on ‘The Only Rock album you’ll ever need’ compilation (the only SA artist asked) and the music video for ‘Wake Up’ was chosen to be on the NOW 64 DVD. 


Mark has since toured Namibia, where he performed at the legendary Wanderers Stadium and headlined the MoonRock International Music Festival in Malawi.

A great honour for Mark was being invited to perform at Kirstenbosch Gardens alongside Sipho Hotstix Mabuse, where they did a few duets together – “Hotstix is one of South Africa's longest standing artists and has won several SAMA awards.  I was truly honoured to get a phonecall from him”

One of his greatest achievements was being voted in to be the support act for BonJovi on their ‘Because we can’ Tour in 2013 – “One of my most memorable shows to date - 50 000 people in Cape Town stadium”
