The Seventh Hour

Twin brothers Todd "O'Riley" Garner and Troy Garner left their roots in
the South Side of Chicago with their mother, Kathleen Tyson, for Los
Angeles when the boys were seven. At the time, the boys did not
anticipate the musical journey they would ultimately embark upon.

Todd and Troy attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts
(LACHSA), focusing their studies on music. After participating in an off
broadway production of "Hair," the brothers were approached by an agent,
and began to land jobs together and separately while completing high
school. After graduation from LACHSA, Todd and Troy played on a
recording by jazz guitar artist, Dirk K. They performed onstage with Dirk
K's band, which eventually led them to side Lenny Kravitz, who took them
around the world singing backup on Kravitz's "Circus" world tour. This
opportunity was an invaluable experience for the brothers. Todd
remembers sitting on a tour bus playing one of his own songs when Lenny
told him, "Turn that off for a second." Todd recalls, "Lenny just picked
up his acoustic guitar and told me to sing along with him. It was like a new
song. It was amazing how different it sounded even though it had the
same melody now just with vocals and guitar."

After the Circus tour, the twins began writing their own songs and
formed a band called Seven's Door. After a show at the Opium Den in Hollywood,
Seven's Door landed a recording contract with Capitol Records. Even without an album release, the company's confidence in the group gave them the
drive to help start a new band, The Seventh Hour. Their eponymous first
CD release showcases the brothers' R&B, rock and metal sensibilities,
inspired by many of their heroes, including Led Zeppelin, Sevendust, and
Lenny Kravitz.

"The Seventh Hour is committed to bringing real heartfelt music back to
rock and roll," says Todd. "I feel it's our responsibility to provide a
positive element and integrity that will inspire the new generation."

Tim Kleiman got his first guitar and lessons at age 5, when he became
fascinated by the rock band, KISS. He studied violin in elementary
school and picked up the electric bass at age 12, beginning to play
guitar, bass and drums in rock bands a year later. Tim lived in Seattle
during the grunge era playing in such bands as Ready, Willing and Abel,
Primal Order and Alter Eden. He recorded and toured with a Tucson based
band called Spirit Union Revival throughout the mid to late 1990s.
Recently, he was in a hard rock band called Debrix and a heavy metal
band called “Revelation”. The Los Angeles native has a bachelor's
degree in music from Evergreen State College and currently teaches
guitar and bass lessons.

Trevor Thornton began playing drums at the age of seven and started
playing professional gigs at 12. His album credits include Asia's "Asia-
Live in Osaka", Q-Feel's "Orbital Be-Bop", and John Vidor's "Blue Flux
Deluxe". He has toured internationally, playing with diverse acts
including Walk on Fire, Kim Wilde, One Nation and Locomotives. He has
also sat in sessions with Def Leppard, Dexy's Midnight Runners, Flock of
Seagulls, and Lynx. He has taught master classes at NAMM, the British
Music Fair, the Frankfurt Messe and the Scottish Music Fair.

Rick Zaccaro got his first bass at the age of 13 and immediately honed
his craft playing along with entire Rush and Led Zeppelin albums. Rick
played in various bands in the Los Angeles area and eventually became a
founding member of the band, Green Vinyl Dream (GVD). The group released
a couple of indie albums and enjoyed some success with their hit single,
"Kaleidoscope." They also toured with the likes of Linkin Park and the
legendary Pat Benatar. After GVD disbanded, Zaccaro answered an ad
placed by guitarist Tim Kleiman, who was looking for musicians to
collaborate with. A friendship quickly developed as the two discovered
they both shared a passion for hard rock and heavy metal music--a
friendship, which eventually led to Kleiman inviting Rick to join The
Seventh Hour.

The Seventh Hour holds a belief that music is a collaborative art to be
shared with the masses. They hope this attitude will propel them to
continue creating new music with originality and commercial appeal.
