Zeroed Hero pours a classic blend of '70s rock and '90s alternative that’s more Muhammad Ali than Mike Tyson, featuring tight, riffy guitars and smart, thoughtful lyrics presented with sweet, memorable harmonies.  Their high-energy live shows built on visceral rhythms, immersive grooves, rich melodies, and powerful harmonies showcase the strength of their songwriting and have earned them the title of the Madison Area Music Association's 2020 Breakthrough Artist of the Year.

  • Chris Franczek - bass, vocals
  • Dean Kesler - vocals
  • Katrina Harms - keys, vocals
  • Stefan Truesdell - guitar, vocals
  • Tony Kille - drums

Infused with an array of badass talent packing more flavor than an artisanal ice cream shop, the band connects with audiences during compelling live shows that are energetic, passionate affairs.  Chris seasoned his bass chops through cover bands and blues. Dean extracted his vocal style from powerhouse classic rock and musical theater.  Katrina came up on classic rock radio playing piano and writing and performing as an electronica solo artist.  Stefan forged his guitar skills in alt-metal and tempered them touring nationally with reggae and funk groups. Providing the tock to our tics, americana & rock veteran Tony anchors the rhythm section on drums.

Like your favorite pair of worn jeans, slide in and wrap yourself in the black and blue-collar rock & roll comfort of Zeroed Hero.
