Band members

Joe Hottinger bio

taken from the October 2004 archive of Halestorm's official web site

Joe was born in Wisconsin and lived there until he was 13 years old. It was in this frozen climate he discovered rock and the guitar. After living in England for a year, he relocated to Philadelphia, PA where he took his art to the next level. In and out of bands in Philly and Virginia Joe finally, in the summer of 2003, found his musical partners with Lzzy and Arejay.

He lists The Beatles, Jeff Buckley, Sigur Ros, Radiohead, Soundgarden, and Incubus as just a few of his main influences. He is dedicated to his craft, and pioneering a unique sound for tomorrow's music.
