Horseshoe Welcomes Aaron Lewis of Staind

Posted in Entertainment by sceneandheardblog on January 12, 2011

 

At the heart of Staind’s loud, angst-laden music are the confessional lyrics and introspective personality of frontman Aaron Lewis. While other post-grunge bands were able to successfully mine the dark caverns once explored by Soundgarden and Alice in Chains, Lewis allowed his sensitivity to pour freely from his words and often pensive vocals, enabling Staind to strike a balance between heavy metal bombast and thoughtful, melodic rock. Born in Springfield, VT, Lewis listened to folk music as a child. The son of divorced parents, Lewis chronicled the emotional turmoil in his childhood with Staind, namely on tracks like “Epiphany” and “For You,” from Break the Cycle. Like the late Kurt Cobain from Nirvana, Lewis casts an unpretentious, no-frills image, exhibiting a brooding disposition and emotional vulnerability that troubled youths can relate to. Lewis recorded his first album with Staind, Tormented, in 1996. Don’t miss your chance to see Aaron Lewis in action!  This one time performance will be held on April 14th at 7:30 p.m. in the Showroom.  Tickets go on sale Friday January 14th, 2011 and may be purchased through Ticketmaster or the Horseshoe Box office
