Biography

A Powerful Female Fronted Hard Driving Rock Act, formed in Toronto in 2006 by Lisa Smith and Chuck Page. Stylistically, the band draws inspiration from an eclectic blend of hard rock and heavy metal giants - uniquely channeled by one of the finest and most versatile female vocalists in Canada. Known for unparalleled vocal strength and amazing stamina, easily tackling the raspy feel of Janis Joplin or the extremities of Rob Halford /Geoff Tate combined with an undertone of classic styles of R&B Diva's such as Aretha Franklin, Etta James. Further adding to their diversity of sound is the complexity of Chuck’s playing - a player steeped in the blues, he lists Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton among his favorites - yet equally adept at the hammering riffs and shredding required of their more metallic offerings, he creates a sound unique to himself. The rock-solid rhythm section is comprised of Peter Greco - a unique percussion stylist, loved for his power-driven yet intricate, precise and solid drum work - and bassist Tim Langan both accomplished studio musicians and live veterans of the North American touring circuit. Together, they create a unique and immediately identifiable groove and their live show is renowned. a definite must see !! I had the honor of performing along side this awesome band last

February 2008, the group took material they had been writing into the studio to record their highly anticipated debut album Maze Of Souls. Lisa and Chuck’s creative bond and unique musical synergy shine through clearly on their collaborative efforts - a collection of brilliant, hard-driving rock poised to take the world by storm. Each track is a standout, fueled by passion and crafted by experts - this is one Maze you won’t mind getting lost in. Released on Halloween night 2008 Maze Of Souls has garnered universal praise. “Maze of Souls by Lisa Smith’s PowerHaus contains pristine production, sweet and high melodic guitar with gutsy, heart throb rhythms - when combined with Lisa Smith's synergistic and hard driving vocals, and added high range lift offs, the entire album becomes a new form of Rock Journey unto itself”. John Hart of Hart of the Music. The ACTRA Toronto News adds Maze Of Souls is:"one hell of a good album” that “will obviously live forever."

---"The coming together of these two (Smith & Page) is nothing short of seismic. Some of the best female rock vocals in an age and searing blues based lead guitar work that will remove your facial hair.--Highly recommended. ***** Pete Whalley- England - getreadytorock.com

Lyrics

PILL-O

Written By: Lisa Smith,Chuck Page

PILL-O
Smith & Page

Here I sit alone in my room
Wondering what tomorrow brings
Will the sun go down at the end of the day
Or will all love just fade away

CHORUS
Lay your head on my pill-o
When they turn out the light
We'll just watch the rest of the world go by
If you promise not to make me cry

Sealed are the miles of past behind me
Most seen through these eyes of glass
And yeah, I realize I've wasted too much time
Yeah, it's time I can't get back

CHORUS
Lay your head on my pill o
Till they turn out the light
We'll just watch the rest of the world go by
If you promise not to make me cry

CHORUS X2

Don't make me cry
Don't wanna cry
Don't make cry

The Needle

Written By: Lisa Smith,Chuck Page

On eye on the needle
Another on her past
One more shot for name sake
Found a good score and some grass

With her spoon she crawls out from her bed
No longer guessing he’ll be mine
Can I have the first was the last thing she said
With one eye on the needle
One eye on the needle

Walk these streets looking for another friend
Through broken doors and hallow lands
Empty pockets locked in hand
With One eye on the needle
With One eye on the needle

Chorus
I’ve been there before
it ain't nothing new
One eye on the needle

Chorus
I’ve been there before
it ain't nothing new
One eye on the needle

Now echos all I hear
Silhouettes clear
Your gone forever now
I’ll replace her somehow
With one eye on the needle
One eye on the needle
One eye’s on the needle

Chorus
I’ve been there before
it ain't nothing new
One eye on the needle

Brett Smith-Daniels - Endurance

THE coming together of these two is nothing short of seismic. And if you don’t believe me, delve straight into Maze Of Souls at track 6 – Rat – and get ready to rock! Some of the best female rock vocals in an age and searing blues based lead guitar work that will remove your facial hair. Female fronted guitar rock hasn’t sounded this good for a decade or more.
Highly recommended. *****

LSP's Song Hour of the Wolf chosen for German Cult Film THE BLOOD OF RED RIDING HOOD - September 9, 2009 by Harry Sparks is an award-winning writer, director, and editor. World wide motion picture release Sept 29, 09.

OPENING for the Headpins, this collection of musicians caught my attention immediately not only because of the sexy singer and the voice that filled the room, but the guitar work really blew me away as well. If you’ve never read my reviews before, you’d know I am definitely a guitar worshipper. You all can blame Randy Rhoads for that. Anyone who can make me stand wide eyed and drooling over their guitar work has gotta be fuckin good cuz it doesn’t happen that often. Listening to Chuck is like taking in the best old blues guitarists all mashed into one. You can hear it in his style, Hendrix, Santana, Clapton, Vaughn and Page, Jimmy that is… Sure maybe throwing Chuck’s name around in that list might be a little ambitious but there’s a fuckin good reason the guy won umpteen guitar contests and it ain’t because he’s a pretty boy.
