Bio

After six years of musical collaboration, experimentation, and honing of craft, the four original members of Seattle’s former Broken Bottle Band have added to their lineup, intensified their sound, and united in 2009 to form the jam rock sextet, Zero Gravity Circus. Through the past half-decade, these young musicians have added sonically and philosophically to their sounds, ideas, and goals. The new force that has arisen both harkens back to the pure musicianship of groups like The Allman Brothers and The Grateful Dead, while consistently tackling the progression of rock, evolving the proven forms into contemporary experimentation. Zero Gravity Circus is bringing back high energy rock, going new places, and not looking back…

While originally inspired by classic rock-god guitarists like Hendrix and Garcia, lead guitarist Adam Williams has since spent five years in the Deep South. His time in New Orleans has indoctrinated the primal American art forms of jazz and blues into his playing and attitude. Funk, swing, blues, and rock elements have all found permanent homes in his sound, giving Zero Gravity Circus a unique and diverse appeal.

Backing Adam is rhythm guitarist Brad DiJulio, an accomplished player in both electric and acoustic settings. Brad’s father Brian, who has a musical background as well playing in a band for a good portion of his life, taught him to play the drums as a kid. The result was a percussionist style of rhythm guitar. Since his early days of playing, Brad has been obsessed with the art of song composition and pens a good portion of the band’s tunes in pursuit of developing his craft.

Drummer Nick Heilbrunn truly exemplifies the adventuresome quality of Zero Gravity Circus. Nick credits his mentor, local virtuoso drummer Todd Zimberg, for his drumming chops and passion for music. His unique drumming style is an organic product of his eccentric personality. His quirky spirit and quest for finding new levels of musical satisfaction makes Nick one of the most exciting, unpredictable, and downright fascinating drummers around.

At 16, Sean Lynch began bass lessons with a jazz trumpeter named Jeff Lewis in a small music shop in San Jose, California. Since moving to the Northwest, Lynch has studied under bass virtuosos including Jason Schooler, Anna Doak and Farko Dosumov, as well as the musical mentoring of Laura and David Ash. Though Sean is already an incredible bass player, he is a student of music first and foremost, constantly exploring new musical realms with a fearless yet laid-back attitude.

Being exposed to a wide variety of musical styles while studying piano growing up Tyler Carr has emerged as a monster ..s in every style of music that Zero Gravity Circus dives into. Playing music in high school with Brad, Adam, and Nick, made Tyler realize that music had to be a central part of his life, a way of expressing himself, and a forum for challenge and creativity. Whether it is a heartfelt ballad or a boogie-down blues, Tyler is guaranteed to filter pure emotion and honesty to his incendiary piano playing on a nightly basis.

Will Carlisle joined the band as a sax player, but since has added more than anybody could have foreseen. Will has been studying music since age 5 and credits his Dad and sax-player Neil Stafford as his primary music teachers and mentors. His influences range from The Brecker Brothers to The Meters to J.S. Bach. On stage, his performances are jaw dropping, the control of his instrument is refreshing, and his presence is captivating.

2009 has never been a finer time for these guys to shine. Zero Gravity Circus is riding the Northwest winds this summer, going as far as their fans want to take them. Be ready to experience high flying rock as you’ve never heard or seen before. So step right up, ladies and gents, and get yo’ spot at the Zero Gravity Circus.
