The Ready Set aka Jordan Witzigreuter.
Wow. What a mouthful. No wonder he goes by the alias The Ready Set. It’s Jordan’s band, except he’s the only permanent member.
And I am getting completely obsessed. He is awesome. I would like to say he is the next big thing, therefore making him the next Justin Beiber. But he is nothing like the Beibs. He’s better. It also helps that he’s just that little bit sexsi and completely of age (he’s 20).
In November 2009 he was signed with Decaydence Records. You might recognise that as Pete Wentz’s label. Yes, he’s one of those. Set to follow in the footsteps of Panic! At the Disco, Paramore, Cobra Starship, The Academy Is…, and the list goes on.
He’s had a few EPs and a couple of singles. But his first full-length studio album, I’m Alive, I’m Dreaming, is set for release on June 15th. His first single “Love Like Woe”, is already making its way around the interwebs and boy, is it catchy. This is where I say, “Let’s play a game!” Spot the celebrity cameo in the video. It shouldn’t be hard. He’s appeared in at least one video of each of his other protégés.
Jordan has also been making some little webisodes called “The Ready Setisodes” in the lead up to the release of his debut album. Rather cute, but the “acting” is a tad cheesy and cringe worthy. If you’re a member of Lockerz.com, you can view them there. Or else they are on The Ready Set’s Myspace page.
And here, for your enjoyment/obsessing pleasure is the video for “Love Like Woe”. It, is like, seriously, like whoa!
