Hailing from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jordan Witzigreuter created The Ready Set at only age 16 after being in multiple bands earlier on. He released his Cascade EP in 2008 and then the Stays Four The Same EP the following year. Also, he did a collaboration with Christofer Drew (Never Shout Never) for his holiday song "The Blizzard of '89" and had his song "Drain Notes" featured on this year's Take Action Tour Compilation. After hearing a demo of his single "Love Like Woe" Pete Wentz from Fall Out Boy signed Jordan to his label - Decaydance Records/Sire Records. He now has his debut album I'm Alive, I'm Dreaming available now where he played every instrument on the record and made sure that the songs were diverse since he has many different influences in his music. He is currently playing the Bamboozle Roadshow and touring with Forever The Sickest Kids later this summer. I would definitely see him live because his dance pop music is infectious and can't help but have great audience participation. I think that Jordan hasn't lost his niche because he is staying true to himself and not letting his recent popularity change the music that his fans have grown to love. I'm not a huge fan of this type of music, but something about The Ready Set is different - refreshing in the music scene.
