CALIFORNIA, San Francisco, January 9, 2006 Adam Rossi Audio (ARA), a DDR Global agency family partner, today received accolades for co-producing the musical album Never Ending by the San Francisco Bay Area band LUCE. Listeners of KFOG and WRLT voted the single “Buy A Dog” from the Never Ending album as one of their favorite songs of 2005. It was #7 favorite at Radio Lightning in Nashville and #8 with Fogheads in San Francisco. “Buy A Dog” was on two CDs in the top 25 at KFOG - both the KFOG Local Scene Volume 2 (#8) and Never Ending (#22).
For this second album, LUCE front man, Tom Luce, once again enlisted the help of co-producer and band mate, Adam Rossi, who plays keyboards and other various instruments while providing background vocals. Steve Bowman, formerly of Counting Crows, is also now a core member of LUCE. In addition, Never Ending features Bay Area artists, including former Train guitarist/bassist Charlie Colin.
The door opened for LUCE in 2001 when KFOG started to play “Long Way Down,” then "Good Day," two songs from the first self-titled LUCE album, which was also co-produced by Adam Rossi Audio. Soon, other radio stations became interested in LUCE after seeing the success on KFOG. “Good Day” went on to be a minor hit at Triple A and Modern AC radio. Subsequently, LUCE earned the honors as one of Radio & Records 2002 Triple A Breakthrough Artists, and then won the California Music Award for Outstanding Debut Album in 2003. The run for “Good Day” did not end there, as it landed in two major motion pictures — 13 Going on 30 and How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days — as well as several network television placements, including The O.C. and Alias.
