Album Notes
Cycle of Addiction was born in Athens, GA in the spring of 2004. Contrary to what one might expect from the name, they delivered upbeat modern folk-rock with a punch. Their sound blended pristine vocals, intertwining harmonies, and simple folk guitar with energetic percussion and intricate bass lines.

The band played most frequently at Aromas, a cozy little winebar in Five Points. They also made appearances at Tasty World, the Athens Steam Company Pub, Hot Corner, the Washington Tavern, the “It’s Friday Show” on WUGA, the “Live in the Lobby” show on WUOG, and even the fabulous 40-Watt.

Kirsten Hazler was the primary songwriter, lead vocalist, and acoustic guitarist. She was accompanied by Rua Stob on bass and Patrick Rives on drums. Todd Herron initially helped get the band up and running, playing bass in Rua’s absence, then appeared for a short stint as electric guitarist. Carol Stapleton and Nora Cooper, at different times, filled out the sound with their vocal harmonies.

In 2005, the band recorded their first and only album, "Recovery," at the Odyssey Studio (www.theodysseystudio.com). The album was entirely self-produced and independently released. Although the band members had to go their separate ways, the music lives on (and is still available for purchase ;) Thanks to our fans for your love and support!

fab debut, want more
This is a great debut album. The band plays well together with a lot of energy, but what really drives their music is the sparkling and self-assured voice of Kirsten, whether solo or in harmony with Carol. The loveliest of the sometimes intricate arrangements have a hypnotically pleasing sound, as in Don't Lay Down or Sign. The lyrics
by Kirsten are mature and poetic. The set of songs have variety and depth, and they all hang together very well. The more you listen to this CD, the more you like it. That sure beats the other way.
