HESTYN is living proof that Rock and Roll never dies.
Influenced by legendary artists such as LED ZEPPELIN, NIRVANA, and FOO FIGHTERS, HESTYN is stripping Rock down -- taking it back to it’s raw unapologetic roots.
HESTYN combines powerful melodies with passionate lyrics that awaken the spirit of timeless Classic Rock which permeates the very soul of American culture. HESTYN has sculpted a sound that is unique yet somehow familiar, heavy-hitting yet filled with pure emotion. This sound has spawned a diverse fan base that spans all ages, cultures and races.
After years of developing their talents individually, ETHAN PACILLI, JORDAN LAKIN, CHRIS PETERSON, and JORDAN HENRY formed HESTYN in the Fall of 2009. Each member fully understood the sacrifice necessary to succeed, and were ready to commit to the project. Over the next eighteen months, HESTYN would consistently write new music. This constant flow of new material continues, allowing HESTYN to develop their unique sound, consistently pushing each member to new levels as musicians.
In 2011 HESTYN entered the local “Ernie Ball” Battle of the Bands, and over the span of two months rose to #1, besting more than 200 talented bands to earn them a coveted spot of the Warped Tour. Since then, HESTYN has been busy recording in the studio and writing new music, all while performing on a consistent basis at House of Blues in both Anaheim and San Diego, as well as many other local venues.
Managed by M7 Management, HESTYN has built a solid local fan base and has now turned its sights on gaining national and international exposure. 2012 strategic planning will see M7 Management partnering with key global Entertainment Industry entities, taking HESTYN to the forefront of the International Music and Film Industry markets.
