Created as the brainchild of singer/songwriter Shane Horsley, 57 Heavy consider themselves rock music purists. At times, the band’s love for classic rock, like Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin, is obvious. Other times one might detect a hint of Sound Garden, Wolfmother, Foo Fighters or even The Police. The list goes on and on, embracing many styles of rock over the last four decades. In short, 57 Heavy is hard to hold to any one style, but without doubt, it is guitar-driven, riff-heavy rock that sounds both classic yet right in time with the music of today.
