One Pretty Minute is an energetic hard rock band from Columbus, Ohio. Driven by anger, lies, and deception, the band presents emotional and powerful content backed by driving and aggressive arrangements of active rock.
Formed in 2008, the band solidified its line-up in 2009 and began a relentless climb to become one of the hardest working bands in the Columbus OH music scene. From their modest beginnings as a club band playing to anyone that would listen, to their current status as one of the most called upon support acts for nationally touring bands such as All That Remains, Powerman5000, Taproot, Egypt Central, Trust Company, and Eye Empire to name a few- OPM has climbed the proverbial ladder and proven they are among the top acts in the capital city.
OPM has been working hard to travel the region playing in many cities From Austin TX, Dallas TX, Jackson MS, Louisville KY, PA, IN, MI, OH and on. They travel in support of their two EPs, “The System”, released on MyPixo Records in the spring of 2011 and “Addict”, released on Broad Horizon records in the spring of 2012. In just a short number of weeks after release, the band sold out every physical copy of both albums. Although still available for digital download from iTunes, CDBaby and all other outlets, this was great accomplishment for the band, and a testament to the non-stop work ethic and support of their fans.
After release of Addict, radio stations across the country have played tracks from the album. Notable is KHRN in Dallas TX, The Blitz in Columbus OH, as well as internet stations from all over including Canada and Japan.

They have true talent and ability, drive and an understanding of what it takes. An OPM live show is always an experience of raw rock that leaves you wanting more every single time! As I have been a fan from the first time I saw them live, the minute I got my ears on their "Addict" EP, ('Killswitch' specifically) I called David immediately and told him how incredibly impressed and blown away I was! These are the times in music, that the industry needs to pay attention and not miss out on what fans already see.

David Adams (vocalist/guitarist) sung real-life lyrics of struggle and anger in a non-polarized style showcasing a soft to heavy style range. The band impressed with it's audience focus and performance of new song "The System." "

While I'm not sure if the sound guy was giving them enough in the monitors, this was easily their best performance yet. Wild, rowdy, loud, aggressive, and professional. I can only hope that there were influential people present that night, so further advance the cause of OPM.""I'm not sure how many people came to this concert at the Newport as OPM supporters, but I'm sure as hell that they left as OPM fans.
