LESSON ZERO is a roots-rock band from Northern Virginia with strains of country, Cajun, pop, adult contemporary, and indie sounds thrown in to their original music for good measure. DJ Andy Och from WRYR describes their music as sounding like a mix of The Beatles, The Guess Who, Pink Floyd, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, and The Eagles. See our you tube page by putting lessonzero after the you tube log in or our my space or reverb nation page by doing the same.

LESSON ZERO is presently working on their follow-up cd to Lesson Welcome, having already recorded “Bail Out” and “Web Cam On.” LESSON ZERO is playing clubs and concerts close to home and recording in their Springfield studio between shows.

LESSON ZERO is Kerry Miller, bass and vocal; guitar George Anspach, guitar and vocal; Tom Zimmers, drums and vocal; and you on your instrument and vocal. LESSON ZERO began in the 90’s when Kerry, the only remaining member, was playing guitar. The present band began with the addition of guitar George replacing Rick Lutyk who died. Tom Zimmers played with the band for 5 years back in its formative stage and rejoined in 2009, replacing Bobby Farlee who moved to North Carolina after recording on 10 of the tracks for Lesson Welcome. Angelo recorded on 3 of the tracks.

Some lyric fun: You may reach us at lesson_zero at dot com
Now I’m asking for forgiveness; she said, “Boy it’s much too late.”
Now I’m on my knees and begging; that’s when she threw another plate. – from “Baby Bought A Ticket”
How will you know if I was even there
While you comb your hair in your underwear?
I just dropped by I thought to take a look
And now I’m hooked. I ain’t going nowhere…
You left your web cam on – from “Web Cam On”
But the postman said, “There is no Effing St.”
When he brought your letter back.
He insisted in giving me his point of view,
“There’s more than the address that you lack.” – from “Effing St.”
Bail out, can you feel the inflation
Bail out, creep across the nation
Shout out, do you feel frustration?
Shout out, it’s an Obamanation. – from “Bail Out”
You can’t hide your love, ‘cause I know where to look.
I’ll search every cranny, and I’ll check every nook – from “Find It And Take It”
