In 2010, Chicago-born Spina (a cook and bartender) got back on drums after eight years away from a set and put an advertisement on the website Craigslist looking for like-minded musicians. Guitarist Anthony “Tone” Catalano (former studio engineer) caught her attention when he mentioned his jazz-band days in high school. “I’ve been writing songs for years, looking for drummers,” says Tone (who relocated from Santa Cruz to San Diego). “I think it’s unique to have a girl drummer.” says Tone, who makes custom guitar slides from wine- and whiskey-bottle necks.
Formed in early 2010, Little Hurricane began when front man Tone, and drummer CC met via Craigslist and have been creating music together since. Little Hurricane’s bluesy soul stems from Santa Cruz, where Tone was educated by his musical surroundings, and Chicago, where CC first created her back breaking beats” (Boikdaddy, 2011). “By coincidence, both members lived on the 30th Street in North Park, San Diego.
