Dawn Over Zero is a brand, and one that is widely known at that. This prolific seven-year-old machine continues to stay relevant and steadfast in this ever-changing music scene. With knowledge gained through major exposure and hard lessons learned, the band is well-traveled and poised for success. Hard work pays off…and Dawn Over Zero is still here writing songs about it. The music is not just an aural experience, it’s a heartfelt journey. No one leaves their shows without hearing a song they relate to - just ask the many Dawn Over Zero fans. Guitarist, Steve Abbenante, brings a revitalized feel to the modern rock genre with riff-rich melodic hooks that sing as true and strongly as Mike Mears, the voice that powers the ‘DOZ’ engine. Jonathan Boyce (bass/vocals) and Mack Linan (drums) lay down an intelligent and unbreakable foundation that engages listeners whether they like it or not. Dawn Over Zero has earned the pleasure of being a John Lennon Songwriting Contest winner and having snowboarding pro, Shaun White, represent DOZ with song placement on his “Red Bull Project X” film. The group continues to gain international presence through a multitude of commercial media representation. In a sea of confused populations searching for the next big thing, Dawn Over Zero is the lighthouse steering you ashore.

Established 2005, Wellborn Road has carved its name as one of the heavy weights in the Texas hard rock and metal scene.  The band formed in College Station TX, where they get their name, but has migrated back to Houston where all four members are from.  Guitarist Tyler Tracy enlisted the help of Scott Emanis on vocals, Dale Kahil on bass, and Robert Dickinson on drums to round out this Texas four peice.  Their debut album "Home" proved to be an uncompromised, raw, and unique record. The band is currently jamming everywhere possible and working on their sophomore album.
