    Halestorm

    When asked, many bands will explain, that their sound comes from a wide range of influences and is difficult to classify. Then there’s Halestorm, who prove with their debut album The Strange Case Of, they know exactly where they stand.

    “We’re pretty much a straight up rock band.” States singer/guitarist Lzzy Hale without pause. “We have a lot of classic rock influences but we’re not dated. We play all our own instruments and sing our own songs and we don’t use backing tracks. It can be very intimate and sweet or it can rip your head off. Fun for the whole family!”


    Hale’s last comment is not as throwaway as it may seem on the surface.

    “My brother and I started this band when I was 13 and he was 10 years old.” She explains of their very early beginnings. “We named the band Halestorm and we have not stopped since. Thankfully we had very crazy parents that instead of saying, ‘get a real job’ said : 'if you don’t go for it now you’ll regret it.”

    Hale’s dad even played in the band to help get them started. “Eventually we got other members and we had to fire my dad.” She adds with a husky laugh.

    Even a quick spin of tracks like single 'Love Bites (So Do I)’ lay bare Halestorm’s beloved influences.

    “It’s definitely very influenced by my parent’s music, which is what we grew up on. My mum is a huge Heart fan and that song 'All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You’ was always on in the house. My guys and I used to go to karaoke bars and they would end up signing me up to sing the song. They’d be like 'C'mon, get us some free beer!’”

    Another track earning the band beer money these days is 'Here’s To Us’ which recently appeared on the season finale of GLEE.

    “That was so strange to watch on television.” She admits. “I’m sitting there scratching my head saying there’s three words that definitely can’t go on GLEE! I ended up having to re-record the track and what ended up happening is it exposed and introduced us to people that wouldn’t normally seek us out.”
