Jason Derulo. 3OH!3. Down With Webster.  Three amazing artists combined for an amazing concert at Fairfield U.  Students at Fairfield are high with anticipation and those who aren’t lucky enough to attend Fairfield for our fall concert will surely be driving in just to witness a night of sheer enjoyment.  Of course most of us already know and have heard the hit singles of all three artists, but what is their background really? Where did they start? Luckily, we’ll know all there is to know in time for the big night.

3OH!3:

The duo, which was founded in 2004, consists of Sean Foreman and Nathaniel Motte, two Boulder, CO natives who met while attending the University of Colorado.  3OH!3, which got its name from the duo’s area code of Boulder (303), independently released their recording debut in 2007.  The band, which is known for its hit song titled, “Don’t Trust Me,” is also renown for their “indie electronica beats and lots of tom foolery” according to allmusic.com.  3OH!3 released a second album titled Want in 2008 and also performed at the 2008 Warped Tour.

Down With Webster:

Down With Webster, also referred to, as DWW is a seven-man band that originated in The Beaches area of Toronto, Ontario.  The pop rock/hip hop band signed with Universal Motown in 2009 and is releasing a new album, “Time to win”, in Spring 2010.  DWW who “writes, produces and performs all of their music” is known to have crazy live shows which  “are the stuff of the local legend, selling 1000+ tickets as headliners in their hometown of Toronto as an indie band before ever releasing a single or video,” according to their official website, www.downwithwebster.com.

Jason Derulo:

This well-known R&B artist started out as a songwriter before his call to stardom, writing songs for Lil Wayne and Pitbull, as well as other famous singers and rappers.  Born in Miramar, FL, Derulo attended performing art schools in Florida where he composed his first piece of music at eight years old.  The Haitian songwriter, now singer, blew fans out of the water in 2009 with his first hit, “Watcha Say” which combined his vocal talent and a well known Imogen Heap song titled, “Hide and Seek.”  “Watcha Say” topped the charts nationally as well as internationally in countries such as Canada, Australia, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.  Derulo’s full-length debut album was released in 2010 after his second single, “In My Head” was released, which was placed at number five, according to allmusic.com.
