Hailing from Cincinnati, ROOM FOR ZERO's take on Indie Rock has created a buzz that has quickly pushed the band from the shadows of local clubs into the limelight. They have formulated an intoxicating mixture, by distilling The Police's punkish reggae with Arctic Monkey's heavy brit-rock, and adding a twist of anthemic guitar-driven indie rock. The innovative, yet somehow familiar, sounds that have graced the British underground now captivate the band's growing crowds in the American Midwest. Their overnight success prompted local radio play, and appropriately earned spins on local radio in the UK.
Frontman Ian Ford, guitarists Michael Stubbs and Chris Harding, and drummer Aaron Cunningham increased strides to match their exponential rate of success fueled by professional performances that made them resemble a major touring act more than the hometown heroes they were. They frantically began work on self-releasing an album to demonstrate their ever-growing repertoire.
Shortly after a debut performance at the 2016 Bunbury Music Festival, ROOM FOR ZERO hosted an acclaimed underground indie release party, sealing off a summer that destined the band for major attention.
Performing alongside acts like Florence + the Machine, Maps and Atlases, LANY, and Of Monsters and Men; ROOM FOR ZERO's captivating performances, and unique American Brit Rock, earned them the title of "emerging artist to watch".
A product of their success, ROOM FOR ZERO announced the 2017 release of their highly anticipated EP, "You Used To Say I'm The Only One". "Our vision is decisive, and we want to take everyone with us as we grow", says Ford, "If the world wants to hear us, we will play for the world.
