“Empowerment” is the way Hale describes the feeling of those performances, and she exudes that power on stage. There, she twists, spins, pogos into the audience. The subdued vocals of her recordings become shouts and yelps. With that band behind her, she is a commanding presence.Babe City, both as a label and a collection of people, have supported Hale as she’s moved from solo artist and producer to a bold frontperson, backed by guitars, capable of shifting from dulcet melodies to shredding screams in a hot heartbeat."
