pZ takes an alternative/progressive/groove/indie rock approach with their music in the spirit of Muse, Tool, Porcupine Tree, Incubus, Zappa, Primus, Red Hot Chili Peppers which all mesh with a more melodic edge that is all their own.


patientZero was born in 2003 when vocalist/guitarist Chris Sarvak started the band in college. In 2004, Chris met up with Aaron Northcutt while they were both teachers at a local music store. They had an instant rapport and realized they had the same goals within the music business. Tasha Hull finally cemented the sound in 2008 and has made the pZ sound a formidable force.


Since hitting the ground running in 2003, patientZero has been active in the Cincinnati scene and abroad. They have played a variety of festivals, including Red Gorilla Music Fest, the M.E.A.N.Y Guitar Festival in New York City, the Rock and Ride Music Festival in Louisville, Kentucky, the Midwest Music Summit in Indianapolis, and the Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati. The band has also had the pleasure of being featured at Music Hall for the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as well as being featured on the UPN Television Network, local T.V. band showcase City Nights, and on Cincinnati’s FOX network station playing live! Most recently, the band has performed at South by Southwest in the Red Gorilla Must Fest in 2009 and 2010. Currently the band is recording with internationally known producer/engineer Erwin Musper who has worked with bands/artists such as: Van Halen, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Elton John, Jeff Beck, and many more. They have also been working with Grammy award winning engineer/producer Neil Citron.
