About Us:

In 2003, Drummer, Jason Enz, and Bassist, Chris Jackson decided to leave their band, The Verdicts, to start something of their own. After experiencing mutiple tours and recordings as previous members of Bayside, West Beverly, and Don't Look Down, both Jason and Chris knew what it would take to create a successful project. They recruited good friend, and former Standing 8 member, Bryan McCormick to play guitar. After they went through a few singers and instrument changes, they called on former Standoff singer/guitarist, Rob Maiorino, to handle the vocals. In early 2006, they took a few months to write and perfect a few songs, and in May, headed into the studio to record a four-song demo entitled "Press Rewind". Intense live shows have secured a local following, that is eagerly awaiting their next release which they are recording right now with their newest member, former Standoff guitarist, Ryan Hildenbrand. Sagtikos, who plays an exciting and catchy brand of Rock/Emo/Post Hardcore, is currently on tour and looking to play everywhere.

About Us:

Inside My Skin -- the 3rd independent release by Singer/Songwriter Aaron Zimmer --is an openhearted and not-so-subtle confession of failure, lost relationships and insecurity. Emotional and honest, the album promises to be the launching pad for the career of this 24 year old from Lincoln Nebraska. The album was Recorded at Lincoln's own Presto Studios by AJ Mogis, who, along with his brother Mike Mogis have been the masterminds behind albums from Bright Eyes, Cursive, The Faint, Desaparecidos, Rilo Kiley, and many more. "Inside My Skin" is an intimate chronicle of the less than desirable aspects of human-nature, the friends we make, and the people we hurt.. From the up-tempo disparagement of "Awake" --the album's opening track, and first single--through the introspective "Good Graces", to the album's 'light at the end of the tunnel' closer "On Your Own", Inside My Skin offers intelligent acoustic modern rock with real-life, relatable lyrics. Its honest music for anyone who's ever felt scorned; soothing consolation to a dying friendship; and a painfully candid confirmation of the healing power of music. Aaron Zimmer began his career by creating a sizable grassroots following in and around his hometown of Lincoln, NE. Beyond a powerful voice and effortless guitar playing, he is a truly engaging performer that connects with audiences in ways few singer/songwriters can. The heartbeat of the music scene in Lincoln, Omaha and surrounding areas is SlamOmaha.com. A columnist from this site offered this review of an Aaron Zimmer performance: "One thing that really struck me about Zimmer was the ease and professionalism with which he executes his onstage banter. He keeps the crowd interested, excited, and manages to keep an air of "I?m the entertainer" about him while still talking to the crowd as if they're all close friends." At 13, Aaron began playing stringed instruments. By the age of 16 he was a regular performer at Lincoln?s legendary Zoo Bar. "I remember playing on a Thursday night and watching my first period teacher in the audience putting away Jack and Cokes all night...it was cool!" laughs Aaron. Following high school, Aaron tried to put college books ahead of his music, and enrolled as a business administration major. But, two semesters in to it, he realized the fight was futile. "I liked college," says Zimmer, "I just wasn?t very good at it." In 1999 he returned to the music scene in Lincoln with a vengeance to create The Aaron Zimmer Band. With this band, Aaron has inked an impressive r?sum?: -Two top-ten songs on GarageBand.com in 2003 as voted by listeners. -Radio play on dozens of college and commercial radio stations in the Midwest. -"Best local band" honors by Clear Channel Communication?s "The Point" 104.1FM, in Lincoln. -Tours of the Midwest, Southeast and East Coast -Three independent CD releases (Aaron Zimmer (1999), "Feverish Dreams"(2001) and "Inside My Skin" (2003). Of "Inside My Skin," L. Kent Wolgomott of Lincoln?s Journal Star newspaper said, "This is solid, acoustic-based rock that highlights Zimmer?s strong emotional vocals and emphasizes his songwriting. He?s really hit his stride here." (Journal Star, 11 April 03) In 2004 Aaron made the bold move to NYC and began work on his fourth release. His show schedule is remarkable for someone with only a few months in The Big Apple, and a tribute to the strength of his songs and performance. His ?do-it-yourself? approach and unwavering motivation has landed his memorable acoustic pop in the minds of many with no help from "the industry." One can only imagine how far these songs will go with some record label muscle behind them. "I?m never gonna be a business man." says Zimmer. "I?ve got too many tattoos, and I've already failed Finance 201. So, I think I'll stick with what I know, playing songs on my guitar. I'm happier that way."
