“Lyrics For Life” was founded by Sister Hazel front man Ken Block in memory of his
younger brother Jeffrey, who ultimately lost his four-year battle with Cancer when he was
only 18 years old.
The charity unites musicians and celebrities for concert events, auctions and other
fundraising efforts. The monies raised are donated to groups that are working to find a cure
as well as those aiming to enrich the lives of patients and their families. From research to
summer camps and family support groups, we are surrounding this disease and conquering
it from every angle.
Artists participate in many ways, most often by donating handwritten lyrics to one of their
songs on anything from a simple sheet of paper, to a surfboard to any kind of unique item.
We then frame or mount it beautifully and offer it for sale in one of our Lyrics For Life
Our team of musicians, volunteers, sponsors and supporters are proud to set our goals for
the future high. We accept the challenge of finding new ways to raise money, awareness
and sensitivity, to help make each day a little brighter until there is a cure.
Sip Cocktails, browse a star-studded silent auction, and enjoy delicious cuisine before enjoying
an exclusive intimate concert by Sister Hazel and guest artists, Ezra Ray Hart.
Originating from Gainesville, FL, Sister Hazel is comprised of five gifted, seasoned
musicians whose well-spring of natural talent has been called “one of the Top 100 Most
Influential Independent Performers of the last 15 years” by Performing Songwriter
Magazine. Song “All for You” topped the adult alternative charts during the summer of 1997
and the success propelled their album to platinum status.
In their first showing on the country music charts they made a strong debut with “Lighter In
The Dark” at #4 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart, #6 on Billboard’s Independent
Albums chart, #30 on Billboard’s Top Current Albums chart.
The band landed on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart again in 2018 and 2019 with
Volumes I, II, III, and IV of a clever EP compilation series titled “Elements.” In February
2018, “Water,” landed on the Billboard Country Albums chart at #9 and at #2 on Billboard’s
Independent Albums chart along with making their debut on the most revered stage in
country music, the Grand Ole Opry. In September of 2018, “Wind” landed at #1 on iTunes
country page and #11 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart. In February 2019, Vol. III
“Fire” landed at #5 on Billboard’s Independent Albums chart and #46 Billboard’s Top
Country Albums Chart. The collectible compilation series ended with “Earth” which again
landed at on the charts at #15 on Billboard’s Americana/Folk Album chart.
Living up to their fan-centered reputation, the band hosts annual events like “Hazelnut
Hang,” that focuses on fan involvement and was a pioneer in themed cruise experiences by
co-founding “The Rock Boat,” a cruise featuring nonstop opportunities for fan/artist
interaction. Sister Hazel has been equally attentive to connecting with their audience
through social media. They have since made their Grand Ole Opry debut and shared the
stages with country music superstars at The CMA Festival, Tortuga Music Festival, among
others. In addition to the events and touring, the band also gives back with “Lyrics For Life.”
Founded by singer Ken Block and the Band, the charity unites musicians and celebrities for
concerts and auctions to benefit cancer research and patient-care charities.
