About the band

Lee Ainley’s Blues Storm – A rising force in soulful rock blues.

Fronted by an unusual pairing of mother/daughter, this musical powerhouse brings you original tracks with sounds firmly rooted in blues history.

The unique vocal pairing of Lee Ainley and Tori Mai showcases tight harmonies wrought from close family bonds and a solid musical pedigree. These unstoppable ladies create the feel of the music with their song writing artistry. On lead guitar is the raw and edgy Elliot Young, who also drops his song writing prowess into the mix. The engine of the rhythm section growls along with the skilful David Atkin on drums. Locking in with David is patriarch Nat Ainley on bass, making this a family affair. The sum of two vibrant young talents and three mellow experienced veterans make this band able to look to the future as well as back in time.

Blues Storm are a touring band and will go where serious rock blues is needed.
