||Isn't It Romantic CD (2006) |
Ladd Biro music CDs Ladd Biro comes to music naturally; his father played violin, his mother, piano, and he began piano lessons as a wee lad(d). He joined the school band playing sax, and as a teen, perhaps emulating his older brother, he formed a musical group made up of school chums. "We called it Duration," he recalls ruefully, "and it seemed like a cool name. Then along came a nasal spray by that name, and . . . well, it sort of lost its cool." He played bass in that band, and became proficient enough to later join his older brother's band. They later parted - amicably - but by then, music was his lifeblood, and he's never looked back.
Biro has teamed with well-known songwriter Dan Schneider, who's penned a number of well-known songs in a variety of genres which include adult-contemporary, country, and national TV themes. Dan is a former staff writer with Acuff Rose/Sony ATV.
They recently collaborated on Shades of White, which, in addition to being called "the best new Christmas song in years and years," benefits - through a percentage of sales - The Shriners Children's Hospitals. For more information on Ladd, visit roscoerecords
