I performed my first show in my living room. I wrote 9 songs of 11 for a cd,I recorded playing all the instruments accept drums and shopped it around to record labels and I got a contract with a record label without a band as a solo artist. I then hired 3 other musician for road gigs. "Dude Offline" Was a cartoon character I thought up,who was real kool,yet when anyone tried to find him on the computer,he was always Offline. I called the cd "NERD LOVE",because only online dating the Ray Tube and never physically seeing a real person,this must be Nerd Love.lol.
She only sends you pop up's. I guess, because she likes you!lol.
I was even more surprised when two songs from my Dude Offline cd Nerd Love had the songs :"Sucks to be you" and "Scapegoat"picked up to be exclusively used in a film called 13 Hours in a warehouse www.13hoursmovie.com to be globally released Nov 08. There's a real kool movie clip on the movie page for it.
I was even more shocked when the cd Nerd Love cd was released last week. J&R store in NY,NY had 8,863 people rate my cd 5 stars out of 5. And Barnes and Noble rated the Dude Offline cd Nerd Love 4 1/2 stars.
I see the cd online in every major store around the world now. Target.com I thought was the koolest and Best Buy. "Procrastinator" is the chosen song first to go to radio.
Hope you all like it.
