burnhalo1James Hart spent more than ten years of his life fronting the metal/hardcore band 18 Visions.  When that project came to an end Hart contemplated what was next for him and opted to make the album that he had long dreamed of making – an in your face, raw and dirty,  rock and roll masterpiece.  The only strange part is, he opted to do it as a solo project, without the support of a full band.

Employing the help of songwriter/producer  Zac Malloy, Hart wrote and recorded an album that he was proud to stand behind, the only problem was, his label no longer was.  What may have cause many to give up only fueled Hart’s fire and with some determination and the support of his management the album was released under the self-titled name “Burn Halo.”

Now the only thing missing was a band to bring the songs to life on stage.  For Hart, the band had to be musicians who lived and breathed rock and roll and  could believe in his music as much as he could.  With what seems to be “mission accomplished” Hart and his newly formed band of Joey Roxx on lead guitar, Timmy Russell on drums, Aaron Baylor on bass and Brandon Lynn on rhythm guitar are currently touring their asses off on a co-headlining jaunt with fellow rockers Halestorm and The Veer Union.  James recently took some time to talk to us about his past with 18 Visions and his future with Burn Halo.
