Autumn Zero took shape in the fall of 2000 when four longtime friends from other bands decided to get together and jam. The chemistry was immediate so the decision to become a band was made. The four began writing and within a month, the first album was ready to record! The group, still without a name, entered the studio and began work. The self-produced album was complete and ready to be pressed and released.
The band still needed a name! Ideas were tossed around and one band member said, we started this thing in the fall, we should call ourselves “Autumn Zero”, and it stuck! Now with a name and a finished album they began searching for a label. They decided on a small indie label in Philadelphia, Caprice International Records. The first single was released to radio in the spring 0f 2001. It was well received, so a second single was released, a ballad that quickly climbed the independent charts. The song soon landed at #2 on the Music Review charts and remained there for 18 weeks.
This resulted in the band signing a management deal with RDM management in San Antonio, TX ran by George Strait’s drummer, Roger Montgomery. By 2003 the band had seen Major Label offers from Island Records, Capitol Records and Sony Records, come and go without the band being able to be involved in negotiations due to Management. This led to the band breaking ties with the management co. The band quickly attracted the attention of a new upstart indie label in Nashville, TN. But again, fate was not on their side, the label ran into legal problems and closed its doors before they could regain the momentum they had worked so hard to build.
This nearly destroyed the band and led to one member giving up on the music industry all together. The three remaining members, J.R Craig, Dave Gregory, and Todd Bothwell, have carried on for a decade, playing throughout the Midwest, sharing the stage with numerous national acts, both Rock and Modern Country. Releasing three independent albums and rebuilding momentum one step at a time!! Their sound has remained true and their determination to make their mark in the music industry has never wavered! As the three members say, “our story may be long, but it’s a long way from being over”!
To Be Continued!!
