Biography

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.

Lyrics

Complicated

Written By: (O’Riley/D. Lowetz)

Complicated

I thought our love would last forever
I guess my assumption was wrong
I wonder what my next move is
I can’t savage a bond this is gone

It’s so complicated being in love
I can’t take it anymore I can’t take it anymore
It’s so hard facing being alone
I can’t take anymore I can’t take it anymore
Is this what I ask for?

Learning to live gets harder and harder
When you’re not use to being alone
I wish I could bargain or barter
The way we use to live as one

It’s so complicated being in love
I can’t take it anymore I can’t take it anymore
It’s so hard facing being alone
I can’t take anymore I can’t take it anymore
Is this what I ask for?

If there was anyway that GOD could give me one more chance to prove my love
I’d give up everything just to be with you

It’s so complicated being in love
I can’t take it anymore I can’t take it anymore
It’s so hard facing being alone
I can’t take anymore I can’t take it anymore
Is this what I ask for?

Stone Cold Woman

Written By: O'Riley/T. Kleiman

Stone Cold Woman

You told me you loved me, and you never leave
You told me nothing could tear us apart, and I believed
It’s funny how one day changed everything
You said you found somebody else
And left my soul here to bleed

I can’t thought this shit could happen to me
Being without you brought me down to my knees

She's a Stone Cold Woman
Never gave a fuck about me
She's a Stone Cold Woman
Taking what she want and then leave

I thought that what we had was something real
Sometimes we’d fuss and fight but then turned around and make a deal
I can’t believe that I could be this naïve
The truth was right in front me
But I refused to see

I can’t believe this shit could happen to me
Being without you brought me down to my knees

She's a Stone Cold Woman
Never gave a fuck about me
She's a Stone Cold Woman
Taking what she want and then leave

We took love for granted
I can’t believe what we had could end like this
But one day girl you’re regret it baby
I had to forgive and move on to love again

She's a Stone Cold Woman
Never gave a fuck about me
She's a Stone Cold Woman
Taking what she want and then leave (2X)

One Night Stand

Written By: O'Riley/T. Garner/M. Contratto/J. Moore/S. Luczy/S. Krivstov/O. Hayes II

One Night Stand

Just pretend I’m somebody
And you don’t know my name
Let’s get a little crazy babe
Why we play this charade
I get a little restless babe
With the same ups and downs
Let’s try a new position now
Throw me down on the ground

Pretend I’m not your man
But a one night stand
Take me somewhere that I never been
Pretend I’m not your man
But a one night stand
Just close your eyes you don’t know who I am

I could be your prostitute
I’ll be your addict if you need to shoot
You can have me on my knees
Pull my head as I start to feed

Pretend I’m not your man
But a one night stand
Take me somewhere that I never been
Pretend I’m not your man
But a one night stand
Just close your eyes you don’t know who I am

Crucified

Written By: O'Riley/T. Kleiman

“CRUCIFIED”

Living in this crazy maze
Took a heavy toll on my soul
Lying in this festered place
Has been a burden I can’t hold
My mind is crucified by hate
Rage is roaming out of control
Tired of fucking losing this race
And riding life’s endless road

I know I got to break away
I know it’s my life I got to save

I’m not gonna let you deceive me
I won’t live in this prison no more
I’m not listening to your lying
I ain’t living a lie no more

Had to break away these chains
Loathing you had taken its toll
Saved me from this filthy state
I give up everything that I own
No longer living life in vain
Running rapid out in the cold
You took away this empty space
I realized I wasn’t alone

I know I had to break away
And it was my life I had to save

I’m not gonna let you deceive me
I won’t live in this prison no more
I’m not listening to your lying
I ain’t living a lie no more

Price To Pay

Written By: O'Riley/T. Kleiman

Price I’ll Pay

I took for granted
All the days when you would call my name
And I’d come running home from play
Before it was too late

I took for granted
All the times you used to tuck me to sleep
And now I’m left here with this pain
Of living without you

So I will wait
For the moment to hold you again
It’s a price I’ll pay
For not telling you I love you
I long for your embrace

I never meant to
Run away when I was just thirteen
But I’d come crawling back to say
Was trying to find my way

I never meant to
Cause you a pain when I was in them streets
I wished that I could
Erase the pain of living without you

So I will wait
For the moment to hold you again
It’s a price I’ll pay
For not telling you I love you
I long for your embrace
