Lez Zeppelin
Lez Zeppelin
Founded in 2004 by New York guitarist, Steph
Paynes, the all-girl quartet, LEZ ZEPPELIN, has
since gained unanimous critical acclaim as one
of the most exciting live acts around, becoming
the first female rock act to pay homage to Led
Zeppelin and to garner rave reviews across the
board. LEZ ZEPPELIN stays true to the
musically audacious spirit of the original,
delivering the legendary rock band's blistering
arrangements and monstrous sound note-fornote
at sold-out frenzied shows around the
world. In June, 2013, Jimmy Page attended
their show in London and said of the group,
“They played the Led Zeppelin music with an
extraordinary sensuality and an energy and
passion that highlighted their superb
musicianship.”
The thing that sets LEZ ZEPPELIN apart is the
seamless and unique way they inject their
gender-bending performance into the original
material. They have been featured on major
television including the BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS,
MTV, VH-1, FOX and radio worldwide. The
group’s first studio album was produced by
legendary producer/engineer, Eddie Kramer
(Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix). The group’s
second LP, Lez Zeppelin I, is an authentic remake
of Led Zeppelin’s first album, using the
very same vintage equipment employed by Led
in 1968. Produced by Perry A. Margouleff (Paul
Rogers) and William Wittman (Cyndi Lauper),
the musicianship, attention to detail and passion
in the playing takes LEZ ZEPPELIN’s homage
to an entirely new and unprecedented level in
this industry. Both records are distributed
throughout the United States, Japan and
Europe.
SPIN Magazine called them “the most powerful
all-female band in rock history” while the New
York Times raved that “Strapping on the doublenecked
Gibson with attitude to burn, this all-girl
quartet pays tribute to its swaggering namesake
Led Zeppelin, ripping through the catalog with
blazing accuracy.” Bob Stanley of The Times of
London hailed, "they are the best band I've seen
all year, no question," and CNN.com recently ran
a front page feature that called the group so
"electrifying" they are "driving club audiences to
a frenzy."
For those sceptics who still dare to ask: Can four
women pull off the exuberant, powerful and
musically intricate performances for which Led
Zeppelin are known, a LEZ ZEPPELIN show is
nothing short of a revelation.
