“Some things are better left unsaid,” Australian guitar heroine Orianthi sings on “You Don’t Wanna Know” from her latest record “Heaven in This Hell.”
And so, instead, she shreds.
A six-string prodigy who’s been at it since she was 6, the 29-year-old has played with Michael Jackson, Carrie Underwood and Alice Cooper, among others.
On her own, Orianthi has released a trio of hook-heavy hard rock albums where she sets her smoky voice against fiery guitar playing.
Occasionally she steps away from the mic for an instrumental, rendering mere words anticlimactic.
