TRANSCENDENCE bassist Houdaille put together new group, releases single

Roger Houdaille has officially launched his new group Ex Norwegian, hot off the success of his “Ginger, Baby” album under the moniker Father Bloopy. The change of name was due to practical reasons and anticipated the release of their debut single “Something Unreal” on July 21st produced by Fernando Perdomo.

The two-and-half minute pop-rock song has been gaining radio play across the states, even Hawaii! The digital single also marked the first release of the new label formed by Ed Hale & Roger Houdaille, Dying Van Gogh.

Three of the four band members have studied under Miami Beach High Rock Ensemble director Doug Burris, the famed “prof of rock” who teaches music despite being paralyzed from the neck down. And those band members are Roger Houdaille on guitar/vocals, Carolina Souto on bass and Michelle Granados, also on vocals. The fourth member is Arturo Garcia, drummer and undergrad at the University of Miami.

“I’ve been compared to Ray Davies of the Kinks and David Bowie,” Houdaille said. “And now, as the music industry shifts toward a singles market again, we want to contribute to the great, two- to three-minute pop single that epitomized earlier eras.”

As the group’s simple, yet rich sound reaches more listeners, band members are confident America will hear and agree that this band is “Something Unreal.”

The single will be distributed by iTunes, Rhapsody, Napster, eMusic, Amazon MP3, Lala and Shockhound. More info, including song lyrics, can be found on the group’s official website at
