Artists' statement

Chris Haise Band (pronounced Hi-zee), announces the release of the single and music video “When It Rains” from their upcoming album, Half of All of Nothing, due out July 2021.

The Milwaukee based Chris Haise Band’s music is a blend of hook filled toe tappers, mixing Folk and Rock. Haise’s vocals have been described as Dylan meets Springsteen meets Petty, while his lyrics have been described as “smart new songwriting”*and “Intense, Thoughtful Songcraft."

Written, produced, and recorded at Red Harrig studios pre-COVID, “When it Rains”, is an upbeat, danceable song that mirrors its hopeful lyrics. Haise’s gritty voice sings “Had enough of bad luck and bad weather, feels like I never get far. I gotta believe life’s gonna get better, why else would it be this hard”, expressing that every that works out in the end is worth the struggle. “When It Rains” single will be released on May 21st, 2021 and can be found on all major streaming platforms.

Following the single release, Chris Haise Band will also release the music video for “When It Rains” on June 3rd, 2021 which will be found on most video streaming services. In keeping with the mantra of the song, the music video was riddled with unfortunate circumstances causing the continued rescheduling prior to filming. Everything from COVID resulting cancellations, to the largest snowstorm of the winter mirrored the theme of the song and the video script itself. Shot at the Historic West Bend Theatre by Eddie Curran of Enterprise Films, the video follows a slew of crazy mishaps during a CHB performance.
