Little Hurricane is a blues/rock duo from San Diego that formed in 2010 after the group's members had a chance encounter on the internet. Guitarist, keyboardist and lead vocalist Anthony Catalano, who goes by Tone, found Dummer C.C. Spina's ad on Craigslist and they instantly bonded over a shared fondness of vintage equipment and dirty blues. After only six months together, Little Hurricane won the Best new Artist Award at the 2010 San Diego Music Awards for their raw, bluesy music. Tone and C.C.'s chemistry is most obvious during their trade off vocals, accompanied by tingling slide guitar and sometimes lovely, muted mandolin. The band's debut album, Homewrecker, was released in December of 2011, coinciding with a cross-country tour of the US.
