Growing up playing a range of musical instruments together, siblings Chenot and David crafted and honed their ability to communicate telepathically as performers. After touring the world separately and together in various bands, they decided to join forces as Mission Zero.

Intentionally forgoing traditional pop instrumentation, the duo focuses on their strong suits—powerful, sultry vocals and blistering, dynamic percussion—supported live by a unique body of synthesized sounds (lovingly referred to by the band as The Robots). The result is smart, sexy synth-pop with bite. Their third album, “People in Glass Yachts,” was released in May, 2015.

The siblings have played separately and together all over the world in a variety of bands (including David’s current gig with rock icon Ritchie Blackmore in Blackmore’s Night). As Mission Zero, they’ve headlined at the world famous Whisky A Go Go, and opened for national acts such as Jimmy Destri (of Blondie), White Hinterland, and Hank & Cupcakes.
