Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale: “I Am the ‘I Get Off’ Girl”

Red Lion, Pennsylvania, is not exactly known for being a hotbed of rock ’n’ roll. Thankfully, that didn’t stop Lzzy Hale and her drummer brother Arejay from starting the band Halestorm in the early 1990s and electrifying the world of hard rock ever since. The band signed to Atlantic Records in 2009 and released their brilliant debut album. Their second album The Strange Case Of… saw them score the Grammy in the Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance category for their song “Love Bites (So Do I)” in 2013. Since then, Halestorm—whose lineup also includes guitarist Joe Hottinger and bassist Josh Smith—have played thousands of live gigs around the world. Anyone who has ever seen them live knows lead singer and guitarist Lzzy Hale is a force of nature. caught up with Hale from Nashville to discuss the sturdiness of stripper heels, why Skid Row is indirectly responsible for her Grammy and the future of Halestorm. Are you cool with being interviewed by us?

Lzzy Hale: I’m absolutely honored. If there is any girl rocker out there right now that is comfortable doing this, it’s me. I am the “I Get Off” girl. On our last album I wrote a song about a threesome I had in Holland called “Do Not Disturb.” I’m very comfortable talking about my sexuality and using it as my superpower. 

Have you always been in control of your sexuality?

I can fully credit my music career for helping me along with that. It may be hard to believe, but before music I was a shy kid. Very quiet. Had a hard time looking people in the eye. There was this evolution of me that, through getting dressed up and performing, I was able to be a sexual being onstage. Because these are the musicians I grew up listening to. Not only the females that were in control of their sexuality like Joan Jett, but also Led Zeppelin and Van Halen. All these bands that equated sex with rock ’n’ roll. A rock show is very much like a striptease. You are showing these vulnerable sides of yourself. The more that I would do that, the more power I got from it. It’s a powerful thing to be comfortable in your own skin.
