ROCK'S BREAKOUT ARTIST OF 2012
Rock's biggest underdog, Deuce has become the genre's breakout artist of 2012. "America" – the lead single off of Deuce's debut album Nine Lives, which Revolver Magazine proclaims is "A slick, nasty record that sounds like Eminem fronting Linkin Park" – is the #2 most selling rock track of the year thus far, second only to multi-platinum band Shinedown. The hit track landed Deuce a slot on the Jagermeister stage for the upcoming Uproar tour, beating out several established acts.
Deuce is a lyricist, songwriter, producer and knows-no-boundaries singer/rapper hailing from Los Angeles, CA. As the co-founder, former lead singer and main songwriter/producer for Hollywood Undead, Deuce emerged as the creative force that led the band to staggering albums sales of their debut, Swan Songs, which also reached #1 on the Alternative, Hard Rock and Rock album charts. Deuce is known for his signature masks and ability to jumpstart any party with his often raunchy and explicit lyrics. Since his departure with Hollywood Undead in 2010, Deuce has performed in front of thousands and released his debut solo album Nine Lives in April of 2012, which debuted at #2 on iTunes' rock albums chart and #16 overall.
