ZERO ZERO
ZERO ZERO
Zero Zero is an electro-fuzz-pop project by Nicole Laurenne and Michael Johnny Walker (both of The Love Me Nots), and drummer Nick Ramirez (The Dead Eyes of London, Beezlewood, Butcher Jones).

Original tracks are currently in production, influenced by Sleigh Bells, The Sneaker Pimps, Santigold, Beck, and the Ting Tings. An October 2012 debut EP release is planned on Atomic A Go Go Records. An early demo recording of "Drug" went into rotation on Phoenix radio unexpectedly in June 2012 when Laurenne gave the demo to a disc jockey during a live interview. Two demos are now spinning on independent specialty radio shows out of San Francisco, Boise, and Berlin.

As the team behind garage rock act The Love Me Nots, Laurenne and Walker have written and released five albums, toured the world, appeared in feature stories in Rolling Stone, Spin, Village Voice, Austin Chronicle, LA Weekly, and UK's Classic Rock, among many others, achieved regular rotation on Sirius/XM Radio and commercial radio specialty shows worldwide, and saw their entire discography re-released by french label Bad Reputation Records. Laurenne was named Best Frontperson of 2010 by The Arizona Republic and Walker was featured in Fender’s The Soul of Tone video. Laurenne and Walker continue to collaborate with many other artists on on-going projects.

"Dreamy '60′s soundscapes and doo-wop harmonies with an aggressively talented female front… Like Amy Winehouse went on holiday with Vampire Weekend" is MTV Buzzworthy's reflection of indie rock and roll band The Royalty. Best described as soulful, female-led indie pop, the group's sound is influenced by the girl-groups of the 1960's and the R&B singers of the 1970's.

The close-knit band is comprised of singer Nicole Boudreau, guitarist Jesus Apodaca, keyboardist Daniel Marin Jr., drummer Joel Quintana, and bassist Mike Hernandez. Formed in the desert city of El Paso, Texas in 2005, The Royalty signed to Victory Records in November 2011 and released their critically-acclaimed album LOVERS in May of 2012.

The New York Times has written that LOVERS is both "invigorating" and "fresh," labeling it "one of the year's most unexpected and enjoyable rock records." The enthusiasm has been echoed by other music outlets, with Chicago NPR station WBEZ dubbing the album "infectious," and The Washington Post noting that "Miss Boudreau's vocals were made for this sort of nostalgic music, and she'd probably do a killer version of 'Rolling in the Deep'… When your own songs are this good, though, there's no need to resort to cover tunes."

The Royalty has packed their reverb pedals and toured across the country in support of LOVERS, including multiple showcase performances at the 2012 SXSW Festival. The band has also wowed audiences at Austin's famed Stubb's BBQ, and Silver Lake hot spot The Satellite. Past performances include the Neon Desert Music Festival, and LA's Viper Room and Knitting Factory. The Royalty's music has also been featured on MTV, CW, Showtime, and Spike TV television shows.

Of the Painted Choir bring their infection brand of nostalgic rock to the valley of the sun. A new branch from the Tugboat tree, OTPC is guaranteed to provide the same sort of addictive fruit from whence their branches grew. Their debut EP "Lula," only a month old, has contributed well to our music community and makes the Sonoran desert feel and sound lush.
