The band unleash a turbulent torrent of infectious hard rock on their self-titled debut, delivering uncompromising rock n' roll anthems. Singer/ guitarist Lzzy describes the band's sound best--"It’s powerful rock’n’roll. We have a lot of classic rock influences, but the music never feels dated. It’s got an old school feeling with a modern edge."
Lzzy Hale and her brother Arejay formed Halestorm while in middle school, "My brother and I were very fortunate to know what we wanted to do at an early age. When I was 13 and he was 10, we got together and wrote five songs. We wanted to be in a band together, we wanted to make music, and that was it. Everything came second to that." They immediately began playing local shows and garnered a following across Pennsylvania. The band line-up was solidified with the addition of Joe Hottinger and Josh Smith.
Lzzy's dynamic voice cuts across genre boundaries. "I approach my timing and singing like a blues singer," she says. "I’m very influenced by blues and soul. For me, it's always about making sure I have feeling in my voice." She also casts a hypnotic spell on stage, drawing from influences as diverse as Pat Benatar, Janis Joplin, and Metallica.
