Members: Chris Hillin, Matthew Tempest, Aaron Horton, Josh Jones
Formed in late 2009, Over Odds has quickly established itself as one of the top rock bands working in Texas. From playing with several nationally touring acts, and wowing crowds across the state with their energetic live shows, Over Odds is moving up with plenty of gas left in the tank.
Standing at the front of the stage, vocalist Chris Hillin provides emotional lyrics, catchy melodies, and a voice that will blow you away. Combined with his commanding stage presence, he is a performer that is hard to forget and impossible to ignore.
Guitarists Matthew Tempest and Aaron Horton lay the foundation of the Over Odds experience. They are each the yin to the otherâs yang, blending blues sensibility with the raw edge of metal. Together, their sound is powerful, layered and inviting. Every note designed to draw the audience in closer. Utilizing head-bobbing riffs, beautiful harmony, and soaring solo work, their passion can be heard in every Over Odds song.
Rounding out the band is the rhythm section of drummer Joshua âThunder Godâ Jones and bassist Joe Zapata. Joshâs infectious beats and punishing delivery form the backbone of the band. The newest member, Joe, was the final piece of the puzzle. In addition to his perfectly layered bass lines, and killer live performances, his ability to sing harmony behind Chris transformed the sound and pushed Over Odds to another level.
With countless stage performances under their belt, a victory in The Heineken Battle of the Bands, and an upcoming debut EP, Over Odds is poised to break out in a big way. Their passion, talent, and drive to succeed make this band a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
