Formed in 2011, the Hero Inside are a 4-piece rock band from Chula Vista. Founding guitarist John Bilben and bassist Chris Enjambre began jamming together in 2008, later forming a band called
Wonderkids. After recording and playing shows for about a year, the group split and the duo began composing songs on a computer, calling their new project the Hero Inside.
They were joined by drummer Danny Mendoza, from Bliben’s old bands No One Home and Blue’s Ruby, and singer Nick Stenberg.
