Elizabeth Mae "Lzzy" Hale is the lead singer and front-woman of Grammy Award-winning American hard rock band Halestorm. She has been with the band since its inception in 1998.

History[edit]

Elizabeth "Lzzy" Hale has been actively writing and performing original music since 1997 when she was 13 years old. Both Lzzy and her younger brother, Arejay, started learning piano at the age of 5; Lzzy later progressed to a keytar and Arejay to the drums. Lzzy began learning to play the guitar at 16. The teen siblings released an EP titled Don't Mess With the Time Man in 1999, marking Lzzy's first appearance as a recording artist/lead vocalist. Lzzy has since enjoyed good success as not only Halestorm's lead singer, but also with guest appearances with artists such as Shinedown, Black Stone Cherry, Seether and Adrenaline Mob.[1][2] On July 21, 2010 she appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon with Halestorm, performing "Familiar Taste of Poison".[3][4] In 2012, on the Carnival of Madness tour, she performed the Halestorm song "Break in" with Evanescence lead singer Amy Lee. Also, on the Alter Bridge Fortress tour, she performed Watch Over You with Myles Kennedy on select dates.

Lzzy was featured on the track "Close My Eyes Forever" with singer David Draiman on the self-titled album "Device" by Device released on April 9, 2013.

Lzzy has recently become one of many artists to feature on the Dio tribute album - Ronnie James Dio, This Is Your Life released 25 March 2014. Along with the rest of Halestorm she recorded track 5 of the album "Straight Through The Heart".

In 2014, Lzzy was featured in the title track of violinist Lindsey Stirling's album, Shatter Me. Also in 2014 at the CMT music awards, Lzzy and Eric Church performed a duet of his hit That's Damn Rock & Roll, a track from his latest album.
