Tap dancing cowgirls, Freddie Mercury, and fistfights. These are just three elements of the story you’ll hear from Lzzy Hale as she shares her “Beacon Moment” with Beacon Audio. Watch the clip below as the HALESTORM frontwoman talks about where she came from, how it made her and the band what they are today, and what happened the last time they went home.
A “Beacon Moment” is a decision, experience or choice that shapes the outcome of the rest of your life.
Lzzy Hale recently told Black Velvet magazine that more and more women are turning up at rock shows. She explained, “These girls that we see need to be there and some of them cry and they’re screaming every word and there’s such passion that I see. They’re definitely making a statement of independence as well by going to these shows, ’cause it’s not something you just go to with your girlfriends, you know, have a few drinks, or not if you’re underage, but it’s definitely a different breed of girl.”
Regarding the inspiration for the HALESTORM song “Rock Show”, Lzzy said, “‘Rock Show’ was inspired by a little girl we know in the States. She’s a 13-year-old little guitar player and she wrote me this letter. It’s a beautiful letter about the first time she came to our show and it was her first show and then she got her a guitar and long story short, she’s got a little band now and she can play Eddie Van Halen‘s ‘Eruption’. It’s amazing what she’s been able to accomplish in the last couple of years, but she wrote me this letter about how much just going to that show changes the course of her life and inspired her to carve out her own path for herself and have the confidence to do so.”
HALESTORM‘s sophomore album, “The Strange Case Of…”, made a stunning No. 1 debut on Billboard’s “Hard Rock Albums” chart, while also making a Top 15 entry onto The Billboard 200. In addition, “The Strange Case Of…” has proven a top 10 success on both the “Rock Albums” and “Alternative Albums” rankings.
