James Stephen Hart, formerly of the Orange County band Eighteen Visions, started Burn Halo with songwriter Zac Maloy, who used to be with the band The Nixons. Hart knew exactly what he wanted with this new project. “I knew that I wanted a clear-cut rock ‘n roll band, which is something I had not had in the past,” Hart says of the music. “My vision and my brand of rock ‘n roll without having to compromise on any of the songs or any of the material. I wanted to make a very straightforward rock album.”
Hart and Maloy worked with a progression of musicians to make the album including Daniel Adair (Nickelback), Chris Chaney (formerly of Jane’s Addiction), Synyster Gates (Avenged Sevenfold), and Niel Tiemann. The band currently consists of Hart, Maloy, Aaron Boheler on bass, Joey Sin on lead guitar, Allen Wheeler on rhythm guitar, and Ryan Folden on drums.
Releasing March 31, 2009 on Rawkhead/Warner, the album features the popular hit single “Dirty Little Girl,” which has received significant attention from music fans. “I wanted to paint a real life picture,” Hart says, “They are songs about real life, about situations you would come across with a lover or the loss of a friend or heading down a dark path in life. I think this is a real statement album for me … this is the record I’ve been wanting to make.”
