Heart Avail’s Tip Jar
Visit Official Site: Aleisha Simpson’s Spokane, WA based band Heart Avail writes emotional hard rock lending their strength to fans through their deep lyrics and catchy guitar riffs. In 2008, Greg Hanson (guitar) was writing symphonic metal while Aleisha Simpson (vocals) was honing her skills with her acoustic guitar and powerful voice. Their fated meeting occurred online and the pair worked together in perfect unison to create something haunting and new. Mick Barnes joined the lineup in 2016 to handle the heavy-hitting bass.
During the writing process Greg composes guitar melodies for each song and then Aleisha listens for hours to hear the tale that each song has to tell her. Once she can hear the meaning, she can then transcribe it into lyrics while Mick interprets the bass to complete each track. The band’s influences like Evanescence, Nightwish, and Within Temptation are heard in each aspect of the music from the vocals to the drums.
Their first full-length, self-produced album “Breaking All The Rules” is inspired by the loss of loved ones and the release is essentially a therapy session with painful lyrics to relate to those with similar experiences. The album released in May 2018.
Fun Fact: In 2016, Heart Avail performed live at the famed Sundance Film Festival in addition to NAIRMA’s Road to the Red Carpet event.
Aleisha also writes as a solo artist and collaborates with other artists on their musical projects. For more information click/tap here.
