Lee Ainley’s Blues Storm – a rising force from the south in soulful rock.
UK Blues/Rock rising force Lee Ainley’s Blues Storm are happy to present the video to “Train Wreck”, first track from their debut album “Evolution” due for release via Epictronic worldwide
The song is about a failed relationship, two people living different lives and them coming to the point where they resent each other.
Fronted by an unusual pairing of mother/daughter, this musical powerhouse brings you original tracks with sounds firmly rooted in blues history.
The unique vocal pairing of Lee Ainley and Tori Mai Hobbs-Ainley showcases tight harmonies wrought from close family bonds and a solid musical pedigree from both the maternal and paternal lines.
Keeping good company with some iconic bands that have shared the limelight with two female lead singers, such as Fleetwood Mac and Jefferson Airplane, Lee and Tori Mai are fearless warriors of music. They delve into the substrata of deep rock with gritty vocals and deliver pure gold. They employ complex and beautiful harmonies that, whilst utterly different, blend together seamlessly.
This band has a supreme skill set which reflects in the polished fullness of the songs.
These are built up with each member delivering their parts as inspiration hits. Lee and Tori Mai provide song writing artistry for this body with the melody, harmonies and life-inspired lyrics. The muscle is layered on by Elliot Young on lead guitar, who has an instinctual understanding of what each song needs to come alive and is not afraid to take what he needs from any genre to make this happen. He gives structure and soulful guitar riffs. The heart starts beating with patriarch Nat on bass and piano. Nat is no stranger to writing stunning songs. Dave on drums provides the rhythm of the heart and builds decoration within the songs that not only lifts them but also gives them colour and breath.
The sum of two vibrant young talents and three mellow experienced veterans make this band able to look to the future as well as back in time.
Their new Album “Evolution” is set to be released on 21st Feb 2020. Their forthcoming tour dates, festivals & gigs are regularly updated on their Facebook page and on their website www.bluesstorm.co.uk
