Biography

David Fagin – Bio

David Fagin is the founder/singer/guitarist for the NYC pop quartet, The Rosenbergs.

Search the Internet for info on The Rosenbergs and you'll come across hundreds of articles summarizing a history of bold career moves. One of which was teaming up with legendary progressive rock master, Robert Fripp. Through Fripp's UK based label, DGM, The Rosenbergs, way ahead of their time, began paving the way for artists to begin partnering with labels, thus giving them a share in the ownership of their masters and better control of their financial futures.

A few months later, while the rest of the music industry was waging war against Napster, The Rosenbergs took another controversial step by teaming with the infamous file-sharing service for tour sponsorship and a "buy one, get one free" promotion for their sophomore release Mission: You.

The Rosenbergs were the first band to appear for five consecutive nights on Last Call W/ Carson Daly. They’ve shared the stage with everyone from No Doubt and Stone Temple Pilots to Duncan Sheik, The Strokes, and Duran Duran.

David has made numerous co-hosting appearances on XM radio and was asked by Gene Simmons of Kiss to appear on the Howard Stern Show to discuss the future of the music business. After his first appearance on Dennis Miller Live, David produced several future panels for the show.

Since Jesus was a baby, David has been active in the politics of the music business. He represented the web casters at the C.A.R.P. hearings on Capitol Hill alongside Alanis Morissette and has lectured on the business of music at Harvard Law School, Vanderbilt University, Emory Law, UCLA, and NYU. He regularly speaks on countless industry panels across the country.

David is a frequent contributor to Billboard Magazine, USA Today, The Hollywood Reporter, and is currently a contributing writer to AOL News/Huffiington Post. http://www.aolnews.com/team/david-fagin/

His music can be heard on networks such as FOX, CBS, NBC, WB, BRAVO, MTV, A&E, Food Network, and ESPN. Odds are you've heard his songs while flying American Airlines, shopping at The Gap, or watching one of the many primetime teenage soaps.

David’s song “Birds of a Feather” was recently chosen as the theme to Jenna Elfman’s sitcom “Accidentally on Purpose” on CBS and he's currently developing the cable series 'Rock in a Hard Place' for Showtime.

Lyrics

Goddess of Nothing

Written By: David Fagin

I read you in a book. I wanted to turn the page.
You gave a little look. Threw me into a rage.

You said you don’t know me now. As if you ever knew.
When you see me here you see right through

And I’m sailing into the future.
Keeping it all to myself.
Good luck with finding another.
Goddess of nothing get me through one more day.

How can I help it now.
Just is the circumstance.
I’m takin’ off the gloves.
Give you another dance.

Chorus

Won’tcha come back here.
What’s going on?
Just a little fear.
You know my words were wrong.

I read you in a book. I wanted to turn the page.
You gave a little look. Threw me into a rage.

Said I wanna know you now like I never knew
I wanna see you here and not see through.

And we’re sailing into the future.
Keeping it all to ourselves.
Good luck, cuz I’m not finding another.
Goddess of Nothing. Goddess of Nothing.
Goddess of nothing. Get me through one more day.

Birds of a Feather

Written By: David Fagin

I can’t be anything without you
Don’tcha know, it’s a shame
I’m sitting at my desk and it’s noontime
And I want just to call you

Cuz we go together just like jam and bread
Or maybe birds of a feather

I don’t know anything about you
Don’t’cha know that’s the game
I’m sitting on my bed and I want you to call me

Cuz we go together just like jam and bread
Or maybe birds of a feather

I don’t care if the bills are paid as long as she is with me
I don’t care if my soul is saved as long as she forgives me
I don’t care if the mood is wrong wishin and hoping
I don’t need to be an astronaut as long as you are
K-k-kissing me.

Cuz we go together just like jam and bread
Or maybe birds of a feather

Woods

Written By: David Fagin

I’m crying these buckets of tears
And I wasted all these years
No money can bring ‘em back now
And I don’t want em anyhow

But if you understand a little
You probably could be good
I wanna be something I wanna see something
I wanna feel something good
Not just wander in the woods

She’s got it and she won’t let it go
Even though her daddy says so
it’s waiting at the top of the stairs
still she doesn’t even care

But if you understand a little
You probably could be good
I wanna be something I wanna see something
I wanna feel something good
Not just wander in the woods

And I feel a forest grow around me when I stay
Still I wanna find my way

I wanna be something I wanna see something
I wanna feel something good
Not just wander in the woods
