“Adrenaline-fired power pop!” ~ The Nashville Rage. From the beginning, Overzealous has been bringing the melody, harmony, and straightforward, good feeling back to rock and roll.

Biography

Originally from Knoxville, Tennessee, Overzealous was started by singer/guitarist Dustin Sellers and guitarist/keyboardist Brad Crittenden. The two wrote and recorded all the instruments for their first recordings, with assistance from friend Tim Adler on bass. While developing their heart grabbing sound, and a regional fan base with their first release, Overzealous founded Lounge Act Studios in their Tennessee home. The trio soon moved to Murfreesboro, Tennessee in 2002 where they soon met and began playing with drummer Eric Hill. Overzealous’ first commercial release was a self-titled six song EP recorded at the legendary Wolf Studios in Nashville in 2003 as a prize for winning the Sports Planet's "Battle of the Bands".
In 2004, the band was involved in the creation of the independent film "Novem" from Bradley David Productions. "Novem" was filmed on the picturesque property of Dark Horse Studios in Franklin, Tennessee and featured the members of Overzealous as key characters playing the roles of teenage musicians. The band also had five songs featured on the film's soundtrack, four of which were songs originally created for the film. "Novem" won multiple awards at independent film festivals and attained national distribution.
Since recording at Wolf Studios Overzealous fine-tuned their pop-rock sound, and the four have played for thousands of people in Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and across the mid-south. In 2006 the band recorded and released an LP titled "Turn To Clear Vision", and played the annual Fall Festival in Maryville, Tennessee for over four thousand people. Currently the band is performing as much as possible across Tennessee, continuing to write new songs, and working with Middle Tennessee State University's Scared Rabbit Records to release new recordings scheduled for a January 2008 release.

Lyrics

Cool with You

Written By: overzealous

You and I having the time or our lives, we are being silly, having silly thoughts.

Me and you, taking a chance and working it out,
We are living crazy, chasing crazy dreams.

Holding on...and singing along.

But your still running away now girl,
I wish you would stay now girl,
Things ain't the same now girl,
Why can't they remain now girl??

Trying hard....to be cool with you.

Holding on, singing along, and singing a song.

But your still running away now girl,
I wish you would stay now girl,
Things ain't the same now girl,
Why can't they remain now girl??

And ain't it kind of funny?
We're playing a game that can't be won.
And ain't it kind of silly that our love must go on?
I'm loving you
I'm loving you
and loving it too.

But your still running away now girl,
I wish you would stay now girl,
Things ain't the same now girl,
Why can't they remain now girl??
Trying hard.....

Gifted

And so it goes,
life i suppose
Hey boy,
give back something to her

and now its done
life has begun
hey boy give back something to her

she said get back, get back, home
their looking for you
get back, get back home
despite of it all

she said you got to be true

Repeat verse 2
Repeat Chorus

head strong, you are not the one
you are gifted
you are gifted with words
