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 for note 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 programs including BBC, CNN, ABC, CBS, MTV, VH-1, Fox and radio shows worldwide, including Sirius XM and NPR. The groups first studio album, Lez Zeppelin, was produced by legendary producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix). The group's second album, Lez Zeppelin I, is an authentic re-make of Led Zeppelin's first album, using the same vintage equipment employed by Led Zep in 1968.
The group has broken both the glass and class ceilings, whether it's playing on the catwalk above Times Square for 40,000 people,or taking the main stage at Bonnaroo, Hellfest, or the Isle Of Wight. Flying to India for a benefit concert, or taking it to the stage at Madison Square Gardens (twice!!!).
Spin Magazine called them "The most powerful all-female band in rock history". For those skeptics who still dare to ask, can four women pull off the exuberant, powerful and musically intricate performances which, Led Zeppelin are known? A Lez Zeppelin show is nothing short of a revelation!
