Dann Russo (aka Dann Numbers in SL ) is a little alt, a little classic, a smidge country and all rock. He’s a singer-songwriter with radio-ready original songs and a live show so electric, you’ll be amazed it’s just acoustic. A “soon to be phenomenon” (NorthEast In-Tune Magazine), Dann is a lively act that’s hard to follow.
“Don’t Say That” by Dann Russo was recognized by Gary Allen (BMI (Charlie Daniels Band/JJ Cale) The Music City Beat/Editor in Chief) as a “Very Honorable Mention” in the May-August ’09 “Best Song in the World” competition. And just recently, both “Parking Lot Kings” and “Her Majesty Cry” received “Very Honorable Mention” in the Winter 09-10 competition.
Dann has been playing in Second Life over 3 years and was inspired and encouraged by his peers to take part in the RPM challenge – writing an entire album in the month of February (the 2009 album was released as “Paradiso Lluvioso”). More about Dann here.
Dann has shared a few beers in the physical world with another Boston, Ma area artist Jeffrey Lipsky ( aka Filthy Fluno) Filthy setup a stage in the middle of his gallery in Artropolis where you can see much of his art on display including the recent painting of and signed by President Obama.
You can read the full article here. “Lipsky’s best pieces mirror the high-speed incongruity and heady lack of limits found not just inside Second Life but also at large in a furiously clicking, wildly connected 21st-century world. His use of voluptuous colors, unbalanced composition and busy, layered images suggests both the bursting, overcapitalized nature of information technology today as well as the artist’s deeper faith in the authenticity of the human relationships behind it. Perhaps predictably, his most loyal fans tend to come from the tech sector. Two of Lipsky’s artworks hang in the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California. Another is in the California offices of Linden Lab.” ~New York Times
