One Day Waiting
One Day Waiting is an alternative metal band from the Hudson Valley NY. The band was established in 2013 and is comprised of 4 equally dedicated members who maintain a fusion of the melody of rock music with the intensity of metal.

The lead vocalist is Tyler Kray. He's been listening to rock / metal since 2005 and first started to perform in bands by 2011. Inspired by bands like Disturbed and Drowning Pool, he incorporates a heavy singing style with clean and raspy vocals along with harsh screams. He is also responsible for writing the majority of ODW's lyrics.

Nick Cozzolino, the guitarist, was turned onto rock music at the age of 10. Going to his first concert, not knowing anything about rock music, he saw Shinedown and Trapt perform. It was then that he knew that's what he wanted to for the rest of his life. He started playing guitar at age 11 and has been in and out of bands since 2010. ODW is the right fit he has been looking for. His roots are southern rock, hard rock and alternative metal.

The bassist of the band is Connor Koch. He has been listening to all types of music ever since he was a kid and has always had a passion for playing and performing. With a wide range of influences from Paul McCartney to Steve Harris to John Entwistle to Johnny Christ, Connor incorporates hard, punchy finger picking technique and elegant high end fills along with a deep bottom end to solidify the band.

John Zambito began playing the drums at age 5 and was brought up listening to hard rock/metal music. Main influences on his playing style are Lamb of God, Disturbed, Pantera, Metallica, A7X, Trivium, and Korn. John delivers a style of drumming that revolves around a syncopated double bass foot technique along with the incorporation of tribal drum beats, crafting a unique, tight, and punchy sound. John also aids in the lyric writing process.

One Day Waiting continues to grow as time progresses. They bring the frantic raw energy at their concerts that empowers the audience to listen and feel their music. As of 2015, they have played in 4 different states and have released two EP's.
Autumn Burn
Autumn Burn
The active/hard rock act Autumn Burn hails from Fort Collins, CO and brings a unique blend of musicality, lyricism, and edge to their ever-evolving style. Set to release their long-awaited album, "Reach Up to the Stars" on Sugarfox Records in October of 2016, the band is moving into new and exciting territory; reaching more fans, blaring through the airwaves, and soon going out on the road to build their name across the country.
Against Himself
Against Himself is a five piece hard rock/metal hybrid band that formed in the fall of 2014 in Denver, Colorado. AH was born to innovate and overcome, believing the only boundaries that truly exist are the ones you choose to create. Conveying these boundaries would be working against yourself; therefore, becoming your own worst enemy.

Upon the first month of formation, AH wrote and recorded their 4 track EP at Arsenal Studios in Colorado, which featured the single ‘Someone You’re Not’. The song was picked up by 94.3 KILO, a CO rock radio station, and began to build the band some recognition.

Immediately after the studio, Against Himself’s first three shows were with the legendary So-Cal based band Snot on their long awaited US tour. This helped gain AH many opportunities, such as playing South By Southwest festival and opening for plenty of well known bands that include Sevendust, Fear Factory, Soilwork, Avatar, and Butcher Babies, to name a few. AH picked up Denny Sanders as their manager and became part of his artist management company The Label Group.

Against Himself embarked on their first national tour in October 2015 in support of Burn Halo before beginning the writing process for their full length album, which has been recorded with the well known musician/producer Logan Mader in Las Vegas, NV. The track ‘Within’ from the upcoming album was premiered through Pure Grain Audio, along with a strong lyric video for the current times. "'Within' is not just a song, it is a message. A message delivered through an auditory playground and state of truth. A message baring witness to the times of hardship at hand and being oblivious to all that is confining.” -(David Hunt). 'Within’ was added to radio playlists across the nation. The song quickly reached, and remained on, Radio Contraband’s Top40 chart for six consecutive weeks.
