Pop singer, songwriter and musician TODD CAREY has signed an exclusive record deal with Blaster Records, which will release the Chicago-born, New York-based artist's as-yet-untitled full-length album on September 17. The album's first single, "Nintendo," an infectious nostalgic pop gem that recalls carefree days and young love, will be digitally available on August 20.

"We've been following Todd's career for quite a while now," says Blaster Entertainment President Mike Dennison. "We always thought he was very talented and was refining his own style of writing and playing, but he was still growing as an artist and we were still growing as an independent record company. When Todd asked us to drop by the studio to hear some of his new music, it was pretty clear how much he'd matured. We knew he was ready and it was just time to be in business together."

CAREY--a Studio Guitar major from the University of Southern California--taught guitar lessons after graduation to pay the bills while continuing to hone his songwriting, musicianship, and his eclectic pop/beat-driven sound. With the independent release of his 2010 EP After The Morning After, CAREY reached a new career milestone when the EP cracked the Top 40 on iTunes chart upon release. Now with the support of Blaster Records, CAREY is poised to share his talents on an even larger stage.

"This record ultimately captures the high energy spirit that has built the bond between me and my amazing fans," says CAREY. "It's really exciting to have Blaster Records recognize that connection and become such a great partner. The team we have built together feels like home. I'm living my dream and am so grateful for this next chapter."

CAREY will join label-mates Hank Williams Jr., Aaron Lewis, Jared Ashley and Brother Trouble in the Blaster Records family. Founded in 2007 by Blaster Corporation CEO Tom Porter, Blaster Records is a division of Blaster Entertainment, a multi-faceted music, sports and entertainment company.
