Elizabeth “Lzzy” Hale is the lead vocalist and guitarist for hard rock band Halestorm.

Lzzy formed the band Halestorm with her brother Arejay on drums and father Roger Hale on bass (replaced by John Smith in 2004).

Halestorm have released two studio albums “Halestorm” and “The Strange Cases Of… ” which show off the teen siblings in all their musical ability.

Lzzy started her musical career from a very young age when she began learning the piano at the age of 5 and soon learned to play The Key-tar. At 16, she learned the guitar and she and her brother formed the band Halestorm.

Halestorm signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records and released their live EP “One And Done” in 2005. Their debut album was released in November 2009 and their second studio album followed in May 2012.

One of the things which I admire most about Lzzy is that she isn’t afraid to write about herself in her music and that she doesn’t care about what others think of her for it. In the song “I Miss The Misery” she admits to a former lover that she doesn’t miss him but she does miss the rough sex and pain involved in the relationship.  “Mzz Hyde” potrays her as a female Dr Jekyll and Mister Hyde – basically admitting that she’s a bit of a psycho!
However, it’s this gritty honesty that allow fans to relate to her on a very real level; she’s not afraid to admit that she’s a little crazy like the rest of us.

In addition to this, Lzzy is a great role model for female artist in today’s music. She has a very impressive vocal range which exceeds most of her rock counterparts including Haley Williams of Paramore or The Pretty Reckless’ frontwoman, Taylor Momsen.

 In the words of Garth Elgar ‘That chick can wale.’

Lzzy is also a great guitar player who can compose impressive solos rather than just opt for the  simple chords with great enthusiasm on
stage and at times plays the piano in some of her songs.

Lzzy Hale is one of my most admired female artists for her talent and courage as an artist. She knows how to take a horrible situation and turn it into a catchy song which everyone can relate to, and her stage presence and vocal ability makes for an amazing live performance.

Halestorm are still a growing band but are quickly becoming one that the world must sit up and take notice of.
