AMY HALL is an in-demand, award-winning drummer based in Raleigh, NC. She currently plays with Bad Incorporated - A Bad Company Tribute, country-rock recording artist Johnny Orr Band, and alt-rockers Arrow Beach.
Though she grew up also playing piano and flute, drums were her first love. "I can't remember NOT loving the drums," she says. Her passion for drumming is infectious and shines through in her playing. She plays with confidence and authority, always striving to serve the song. With over 30 years behind the drums, Amy has played in rock, pop, and new-country cover bands, original bands, worship bands, and tribute bands.
Well-known for her contributions to Heart, Led Zeppelin, and Bad Company tribute bands, her drumming has been described as impeccable, "like a human metronome," "like a freight train," and monstrous, earning accolades like, "She sounded just like the recordings! A real keeper there" and, "The 'heart' of Heart Brigade." As a drummer and bandleader, she has helped propel bands to top-tier, headliner status. Country-rock recording artist Johnny Orr hired Amy based on her stellar reputation as a drummer and professional. She has appeared in DRUM! Magazine, DRUMHEAD Magazine, TOM TOM Magazine, KICKS! Entertainment Guide, on the television shows North Carolina Weekend and New Hampshire Chronicle, and on the Matt Dudley Drumming Podcast. She has toured the East Coast and Midwest, playing such prestigious venues as House of Blues, The Fillmore, MadLife Stage & Studios, Rams Head, Jannus Live, The Ritz, Cat’s Cradle, as well as festivals and casinos from New York to Florida.
Amy can be heard on studio recordings by NC legends and Zip Records artist Stratocruiser, Arrow Beach, Mike Nicholson, Multiples, and she is the studio drummer for Hondo Creek Recording Studios (designed by Wes Lachot), where she records drum tracks for musicians from around the country.
