Ask any typical fan of rock music what they love about rock and roll, and chances are two things come to mind: good music (obviously) and the hot girls who are usually associated with it. So wouldn’t it be a brilliant idea if someone combined the two? Luckily, for Central Florida, early 2010 was the time to come up with that idea.
It all started with Tiffany Martin (vocals), the cute blonde who can be heard every morning on ‘Monsters in the Morning’ on Real Radio 104.1. Tiffany had been singing professionally in Central Florida for years, playing gigs at venues as prestigious as the Hard Rock Live and releasing a self-titled debut album in 2008. She just always had men playing in her band. So the concept came up of an all-girl rock band. And now that the idea was there, it had to be built.
Luck would definitely be a lady for Tiffany, when she met Mallory Peyton (lead guitar), an intern for a sister radio station. The two immediately hit it off, and started working on the project. The next step was auditions; they needed three hot girls who could play their instruments well. How hard could that be? It did take some time, but eventually they found sisters Kayla and Alayna Miller (drums and rhythm guitar) and Kelly Jo Ernst (bass). The dream had finally come to fruition: an all-girl rock band with five gorgeous ladies.
The group dove into practice, covering some of the best rock songs they could get their hands on. Before Central Florida could say “hot girl band”, Heroine was playing gigs around town playing covers from the 80’s, 90’s, and today, putting a live show full of energy and showing technical skill as well as their good looks. In fact, two of the band’s members learned how to play their instruments just before joining Heroine (but since one can’t tell who they would be when seeing them live, their identities won’t be revealed in this article). While the band continues to play shows with mostly covers (including a rock version of “Wannabe” , originally done by the Spice Girls), they have begun the focus to including original songs in their set. The group keeps their name in the limelight by playing acoustic gigs between full-electric gigs, making it difficult to through a weekend without hearing about a gig that Heroine is playing. And with shows at Beach Stock back in March, the Florida Music Festival in May, and the Rockitcon Musicians Conference coming up this month, it’s clear that Heroine is a group that Central Florida will be seeing a lot of. And rock music fans (particularly the men) are really happy to know that.
