AMY HALL - PRESS KIT
Well-known for her contributions to Heart, Led Zeppelin, and Bad Company tribute bands, AMY HALL’s drumming has been described as impeccable, "like a human metronome," "like a freight train," and monstrous. As a bandleader and drummer for more than 30 years, she has helped propel bands to top-tier, headliner status. She plays with confidence and authority, driving the band and always striving to serve the song. Country-rock recording artist Johnny Orr hired Amy based on her stellar reputation as a drummer and professional. Her passion for drumming is infectious and shines through in her playing. "I can't remember NOT loving the drums," she says.
Amy has appeared in DRUM! Magazine, DRUMHEAD Magazine, TOM TOM Magazine, KICKS! Entertainment Guide, on the television shows North Carolina Weekend and New Hampshire Chronicle. Touring the East Coast, she has played large festival and casino stages, as well as House of Blues, The Fillmore, The Ritz, Rams Head, etc., but she’s just as comfortable on smaller stages and in the recording studio. She 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.
When she’s not in the studio, you can catch Amy playing with Bad Incorporated, the Johnny Orr Band (with two-time Grammy nominee Ricky Keen), and alt-rock artist Arrow Beach. She also recently studied under Todd Sucherman of Styx. Amy resides in Raleigh, NC and is available for gigs, projects, and sessions. Contact Amy for rates and availability.
