I was born in 1976 in Reutlingen, Germany…played Bass in a small youth band at age 14…
When i was 17 i wanted to be a guitar player but ther were tooooo much of them…i founded a new band with friends and I turned from guitar to the Bass…was fun.. Took lessons…and later i GAVE lessons
Had a lot of Bands then…World Demise, we covered famous Metal and Rocksongs..wrote own stuff too and were popolar in the city among the youth, played at a big open Air, too..then Silence of Misery..had a few Gigs in our city.

MY first real Band with very good musicians was BLUE POWDER…a Progressive Rockband..during that time i learned so much…it was in 1996 – 1998 then the band split up and i joined a Rockband called BROKEN WINGS.
We had alot of live gigs…played at the Emergenza Live Festival Competition and made the 10th Place out of A LOT OF Bands. We played for example in the Rockfabrik Ludwigsburg or the LKA in Stuttgart-Wangen, had a Date at a Radio station too between some gigs.

It was a nice time but i wanted to be more creative , wanted it a little bit harder so i joined NOPLIES in 1999…and stayed there until 2003…we recorded 2 CD..s : 1999 FOLLOW THE RAINBOW which got a very good feedback in the MEtal HAmmer Demo Zone in 2000, and 2002 PIRATE TALES which was another Great Album too! Also here very good feedback from rthe STAY HEAVY! MEtal Magazine and others

Played a lot of live gigs and won the BATTLE OF BANDS 2000 Competition…this was my best time as a musician. I left NOPLIES in 2003..
I needed something new, joined CHYRON with my buddy and former Blue Powder singer Jürgen Elsell and recorded a Demo CD called “SIGNS” We had only one Live Gig, an Open Air, nothing spectacular.
In 2004-2005 i was part of a studio Project with Guitarist Massimo Lia and Singer Jürgen Elsell who was also my mate in BLUE POWDER and CHYRON. We recorded some Songs but it split up after a few time…
After 5 years of retiring from the music scene i planned to do my own Homerecording Solo Project ! I had so much ideas during the last yearsso I built my own little Homerecording Homestudio and wrote songs, recorded them with my Singer Denis Hübner…I do the whole music stuff alone..play the bass, the guitars…write lyrics and do some background vocals if needed…program the Drums and Synthesizers..
the old passion for making music is BACK! ;)

Thank you for listening to my songs and videos!

Members: Members are in the order they met me David Carson, Ric Cwiak, Paul Garcia, Brian Madurzak, Jet Tate, Nick Gray

Sounds Like: Godsmack, Disturbed, Mudvayne, Nine Inch Nails, Filter

Bello is a hard driving, heavy, massive energy, highly entertaining, rock band with their very own original sound in both music and vocals. David Carson has a very recognizable voice and really sings from his heart, sharing every emotion physically and lyrically. The band’s music and his vocals equal perfect chemistry.

Bello was created in 1999 in Chicago, IL. There are four original members David Carson(founder, song writer,guitar,vocals), Ric Cwiak(vocals/song writer/lead guitar), Paul Garcia(vocals/songwriter/bass), Brian Madurzak(song writer/drums). Bello was one of the fastest growing bands of that day along with Disturbed, Soil, Chevelle,Mudvayne, etc. Bello came on the scene right as those bands were getting signed and they quickly took over the Chicago scene while Disturbed took off and went on big tours, becoming one of Chicago’s most exciting bands to see live. They lived hard, played hard, and it showed by their quick growing popularity.

In 2002 Jett Tate joined the band on the bass and Bello decided to create a tribute to Godsmack and all their hit songs, Bello’s plan was to use Godsmack music, which they called the band Gotsmack, to book sold out shows across the Midwest and then by having Gotsmack open up for Bello, Bello would introduce all the Godsmack fans to Bello’s original music. The Godsmack fans were blown away at how Bello played Godsmack exact to every sound perfectly, some fans even said the Gotsmack show was better than when they saw Godsmack live.

Bello has been all over from Sturgis, South Dakota to L.A. and covered all the surrounding Mid-Western states.

Bello was playing as Gotsmack all over the Midwest when one of their key crew members was murdered and David Carson took it really bad and had also been overtaken himself with the crazy lifestyle he was living. So Bello played one more show after his funeral and David moved to Florida where he built his own studio and recorded a solo Bello album.

Some of the songs from that recording are Again, Scarred, Beautiful World, Chaotic Pages, I’m just Fine, and Wanted. These songs featured a young 17 year old on the instruments named Nick Gray. They together wrote, sang, and played all instruments, recorded, engineered, and mixed an entire cd on their own.

Meanwhile the original Bello members stayed in Chicago and our each in a couple cover bands a piece and Brian Madurzak (drum master) is in an original band called Black 4.

2011 David Carson moved back up north and during the move ran across all Bello’s old recordings and the members and fans put together all the live video footage and the professional videographer/photographer began sending him the files to begin working with. David thought the material was too good to sit in a box and started opening music sites and building a whole new following all over the globe.

You can find them on just about every music site available and also on social sites. On these sites you will find a lot of material. I hope that Bello will fill up last.fm with all their material e.g. video’s, photos, comments, and more because they are fun to interact with.

Bello is just one band you have to see live. You know the kind of show you see and it’s forever stuck in your mind? That’s a Bello show.
Bello has made it possible for fans to see them live by releasing live concert video’s and are adding more video’s weekly on their band sites.

David Carson says if they can reach 100,000 fans that he will put Bello back on tour again. They left the scene right at the top of their game, turning down recording deals because they didn’t want to give up their publishing rights and that might just have paid off, as fast as their new fan base is growing. David believes within a year of marketing and releasing their music globally through the web and utilizing all the tools that are available for independent artists, that Bello will become a touring band again.

Get aboard and be part of a band that is determined to take the music industry by demand. Like them on Facebook and sign up on their mailing list. You will be notified when new songs, video’s, and photos are added. Also come engage in conversation with a hard driven artist. David is a very different character to talk to!

The Godsmack tribute, Gotsmack, will be uploaded for you to see live and you can judge for yourself just how easy Bello pulled Godsmack off. They made it very clear that there was no offense by Bello to Godsmack but they were paying tribute to a band that has over 20 commercial hits.
David Carson says,”Godsmack was a blast to play because you could play 30 songs and everyone in the venue would know each song!! You could fill up a 1,000 capacity venue and all the smaller ones were nuts to butts! It was a blast!! Too bad I couldn’t go on after Alex died because Godsmack was about to make Bello famous, just like Alice N Chains did for Godsmack. Godsmack fans are up in the millions and Bello was converting them nightly. Only we were a little smarter for the advertising pull using Gotsmack as our name. You could not tell the difference when it was advertised over the radio” as he laughs.

David goes on to say, “I give monster PROPS to Sully for being able to tame those bad ass musicians in Godsmack into playing simple hook lines that sale music! It’s not an easy task to have great musicians at your fingertips and get them to hold back on just how great they are and keep it simple enough so fans can get hooked and remember your songs. I think Sully should, for their 20th anniversary, just write an amazing musicians album and show off just how talented that band really is. I hope to be able to connect with as many fans as they have someday!”

So, Spread the word, listen, watch, comment, and share, share, share!! Because we all want to be able to see this band Bello live again. Until then, go to their sites and watch just what a Bello show was like.

Major Label Promotion

“We have so many years of experience working with some of the biggest names in the industry and many amazing artists the majors let fall through the cracks. The music industry in the digital age is a results-oriented industry. The only way to come out ahead as an independent artist or label is with a very lean, innovative and tenacious team of music industry experts. It hasn’t been an easy task to assemble such a great team of executives who can produce results and do so in a cost-effective manner, but I’m proud to say we have done it.”

Co-Founder and Major Label Promotion Veteran Erik Baker

Have you had someone promise you radio airplay without delivering on that promise?

Are you looking for a team that can help you fix what a past promotion team has already done or simply looking to avoid the pitfalls that you have seen others fall into?

Are you a developing talent who:

Has reached a plateau in the industry
Seeks new/broader markets
Is interested in more brand partnerships/sponsors?

If so we have exactly what you’re looking for! Our team is comprised of major label veterans in promotion, marketing, and A&R. Over the past 4 years we’ve been helping hundreds of artists, managers and labels succeed in an industry that is changing so rapidly, it’s nearly impossible to stay ahead of the curve.

Our goal at Major Label Promotions is to provide more than what a label provides an artist. The “labels” have been notorious at providing promotion and marketing to artists without involving them in what’s happening behind the scenes. Generally the artist is told, “Just be creative and let the label handle the business.” While the artist does need to be creative, an understanding of its business is the key to long term success. The artist is the driving force behind its business and should know about and understand it.

Do you have or have you had a promotion & marketing team that just cannot connect the dots?

Most of today’s labels, managers and artists outside of the “Major” landscape are simply lacking the necessary tools to effectively develop themselves in an ultra-competitive marketplace.  We give our clients access to all the resources a major label would provide in a personal, more transparent manner. Unlike the major labels, we keep our clients well-informed. We provide a more comprehensive set of services and keep our clients informed as to how and why they are utilized.

Sixx signed the band to his own 11-7 records, co-producing and quickly releasing TLV’s album “Whatever Gets You Off”. The debut single, “I’m Bad”, hit over 300K downloads on iTunes in the first week, and the album went on to be named one of iTunes best hard rock releases of the year.

The Last Vegas play shows and tour with rock’s biggest acts including AC/DC, Buckcherry, The New York Dolls, Airbourne, The Bronx, Papa Roach and supported Motley Crue’s Saints of Los Angeles 2-month North American stadium tour. They were named “best new discovery” by Spin magazine and had stellar reviews in both Billboard and UK’s Classic Rock magazine. “Whatever Gets Your Off” was respectively named one of iTunes Top 15 rock albums of the year along side Pearl Jam, the Dead Weather, Them Crooked Vultures, and the Black Crowes.

Formed in the mid- ’90s, Godhead has been steadily building their fan base and emerging as a true international rock act. Their major label debut release of ‘2000 Years of Human Error’ on Marilyn Manson’s Posthuman Records in January 2001 and the 2003 summer release of the follow-up ‘Evolver’ on Reality Entertainment, have sold well over 200,000 copies to date world-wide. After years of touring extensively with Marilyn Manson, Disturbed, Static-X, Mudvayne, Rammstein, Pigface and Saliva to name a few — as well as performing at Ozzfest and the Reading and Leeds festivals overseas — Godhead has scraped, clawed and carved out their own place in the rock music world.

“We’re one of those bands that has done it all, from touring in a broken down van and playing in front of 10 people to entertaining festival crowds of tens of thousands. We’ve certainly paid our dues and then some, but we don’t feel we are owed anything”, says front man, Jason C. Miller. “We’ve always believed in ourselves and our fans have always believed in us and they constantly let us know, which is amazingly encouraging.” says Miller.

Formed in Washington, D.C., Godhead was signed to Marlboro Music and had two successful European releases in 1994 and ’95 followed by their first US release, ‘Nothingness’ in 1996 and ‘Power Tool Stigmata’ in 1998. But it wasn’t until 2001 that Godhead broke out in the US.

After years of hard work and determination, MTV and radio stations across the country started catching on to the Godhead sound and began playing “Eleanor Rigby” and “The Reckoning” in heavy rotation. The band would play in front of over 3 million people in the next two years and appear on three major motion picture soundtracks including the gold selling ‘Queen of The Damned’ as well as ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘Dracula 2000’. Their success continued into 2003 with “The Hate In Me” single from their Evolver album that turned into an MTV2 hit as well as the song “Far Too Long,” which was featured on CBS Television’s “NFL Today” show. In 2006, Cement Shoes Records released, ‘The Shadow Line’ which also included a DVD of videos and behind the scenes footage. The single “Trapped In Your Lies” put Godhead in the rock radio Top 40 for the first time in their career.

Now signed to Driven Music Group/ Warner Brothers, Jason C. Miller comments, “Driven Music Group is going to be a fantastic new home for Godhead. We couldn’t be happier to be a part of this company. Creatively they are letting us bring our music to the audience exactly as we’ve intended, and as artists we can’t begin to describe how much we appreciate that!”
