Home

Welcome to the home of Olympia, WA-based blues rock band, Hurts Like Hell. Having shared stages with The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, .38 Special and The Little River Band, Hurts Like Hell creates an electrifying, all-original rock and blues experience that draws on the rich sonic history of rock and roll in the sixties and seventies – Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, the Allman Brothers, ZZ Top, Robin Trower and Bo Diddley. Sharing more than a century of experience performing professionally, the four band members have forged their authentic sound through a shared musical vision, a relentless passion for creating music and the expert use of increasingly rare vintage gear.

Hurts Like Hell’s most recent record, “Don’t Cry Wolf” is available now! Listen here.
