Releasing punk style inspired pulses, at the same time fusing it with reckless heavy rock riffs, Zero to Hero proclaim a space of their own on the modern punk rock scene. Coming from Salt Lake City, UT, Zero to Hero first got together in 1998. Embodying the crew is a three-piece lineup featuring guitarist and vocalist Mike, bassist Jay, and drummer Connor. Mike and Connor, the founding duo of the band, first met while they were still attending high school. During the following years, both shared various musical experiences, all of them leaning towards the leading punk revival inspirations later selected by the band. The two-team was then later joined by bassist Jay, before Zero started racing around Salt Lake City's club scene. A few months after, the trio settled on recording its first disc, The Talent Show Rejects, an eight-song EP that hit the record stores in 2001.
