Hazell Dean, whose real name is Hazel Dean Poole, is an English singer who had her first success in 1984 with the single "Evergreen / Jealous love".
But it is especially the title "Searchin '(I Gotta Find A Man)" released the same year that will allow her to climb to the top of the Charts. Followed by little "Whatever I do (Wherever I go)" which will do even better.
In 1985 the single "They say it’s gonna rain" was released, followed by "Stand up" in 1986. The years go by but are hardly alike : the two titles are far from equaling the sales scores of the year 1984.
Back in force in 1988 with the enormous "Who's leaving who" which allowed her to catch up with the leading pack. The title is a huge success.
The album "Always" comes out in stride and makes a more than honorable run in the Top Albums.
She will experience one last major success with the title "Love pains".
To discover or rediscover.

1975 ... the very first steps. Who would imagine at this point the enormous career that awaits young Hazell in the years to come. Not many people ...
1976 ... oh what a beautiful time those 70s were. Everything was outdated but everything was so simple. A freshness and innocence that we miss so much these days ...
1977 ... an obvious predisposition for the Intimist. And yet, it is not in this area that she will reap fame and fortune, far from it ...
1981 ... the beginning of the 80's which combines with 2. A shocking duo, but above all charming, nice but nothing more. Little Hazell will still have to work to hope to stand out from the crowd ...
1983 ... but it is this title that will make all the difference. It was released for the first time in 1983 and enjoyed relative success. Then came out in 1984 and this time it was a real hit !
1984 ... the rise in power thanks to this luxury cover. A surprisingly Dance cover of Barbra Streisand's flagship title ...
1984 ... HER big year. After the remixed version of 'Searchin' which allowed her to obtain the biggest success of her career, we find her on her 2nd title of the year 1984. And guess what, it also ends in notable success !
1984 ... a truly incredible 1984 that saw her go on hit after hit. And suddenly reach a planetary star status
1985 ... it's going to be hard to compete with the previous year but she shows once again that she is not there by chance
1985 ... this one will do even better than the previous one. A great success on the Old Continent which confirms the singer's obvious talent
1986 ... the year 1986 is going to be a little bit lower. Good job, but this year will serve more as a year of transition than anything else ...
1986 ... even if that year will not bring her her biggest successes, it at least allows her to consolidate her position on the front of the stage. It's already that !
1987 ... we find her in Hi-NRG mode in this year 1987. And the least we can say is that it pulses !
1988 ... which will surely remain as one of his best titles, if not the best. This is the second biggest global success of her career thanks to this perfectly successful cover of Anne Murray's title released two years earlier in 1986. HU-GE !
1988 ... the year 1984 was undoubtedly its best year. The year 1988 will approach more or less. Hit on hit !
1988 ... a triplet of hits which ends in beauty with this title. Admittedly, the least prestigious of the 3, but still
1989 ... the end of the decade will prove to be more complicated to manage than expected. Despite pieces of more than certain quality ...
1991 ... the change of decade will unfortunately not allow the singer to find a level of success equivalent to what she experienced the previous decade. And this despite the production of high-caliber Dance track
1993 ... she hangs on and does better than resist. But when it doesn't want anymore, it doesn't want anymore. Difficult to fight in these conditions ...
1994 ... after Hi-NRG, here she is in the world of House. She will have tried everything the bougresse !
