The rock band market zero was founded with a desire to make music that captures the people's attention, all the while, I sat at home not even putting on pants in 2020. Growing up in the 80's, music was an important part of my life. Bands like Queen, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Talking Heads, & Led Zeppelin; made a tremendous impact in shaping my musical preferences. My years as a teenager wasn't that much different, I still loved all the classic rock bands but I also started liking bands like Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor), Marilyn Manson, & Tool. I would say I was a little more than 15, when I started going to rock concerts and spending all the rest of my time teaching myself to play the guitar.
I write drum beats, guitar parts and the occasional keyboard lines. I cause a lot of the magic to happen. Without me we wouldn't have jack squat going on. Also growing up in the 80s I liked Dire Straits, Peter Gabriel, and (oddly enough) Iggy Pop then later around 10 and 13 Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, Presidents of the United States of America .Then I discovered pop punk around 14-15 (earlier if you count Green Day...I owned Dookie at age 11), listened to a lot of NOFX, Blink 182. I'd say at age 18 is when I discovered indie rock, bands like Modest Mouse, Built to Spill.
My love of pop punk made me dig more into other punk rock my early 20s (Minor Threat, Bad Brains) my music influences bleed into the rock band market zero
The rock band Market Zero was started back in 2005 founders Guitar - Joey Owens with Bass - player Jason Loyd and Drummer - Jon Rose. Market Zero back then started as a jam band playing open mic nights at local bars like O'Rileys and Muddy Waters and preforming at any local establishment that would have us honestly. Our first professional recording was done four weeks after forming; we drove to Austin, TX to let a friend record us for a student project. At the time we didn't have a singer and didn't have a musical direction we were a jam-band by all accounts. Today Market Zero, consist of singers, songwriters, multi-instrumentalists, and producers
Joseph Owens & Justin Casey as the only permanent members of the band.
