“Vicious Things,” the Highly Anticipated Sophomore Album by Blues Guitarist, Voo Davis – Available Today

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 10, 2013

"Vicious Things" is the highly anticipated sophomore album by blues guitarist, Voo Davis, that will leave you enveloped in emotion, is scheduled for release today, September 10th, 2013. Voos previous basement-recorded release, A Place For Secrets, spent seven months running through the AMA & Roots Music Report charts respectively, while surprising the Blues/Americana music scene with an overdriven acoustic mix of slide based guitar songs. After taking up the guitar at age 19, Voo began playing solo gigs at only 21 years old; he has since performed with Chicago Blues legends Eddie "The Chief" Clearwater and Chico Chism, among others. A former member of the band Loose Change, Voo is known for his aggressive and dynamic stage presence and classical technical abilities. Nicknamed Voo due to his vast knowledge and ability to play Jimi Hendrix on command, Voo lists his namesake along with Buddy Guy, Martin Sexton, and R.L. Burnside as vital influences.

Vicious Things is a fresh, new collection of songs arriving just a year after the release of Voos highly acclaimed debut. Lyricism is of equal importance to the music on Davis new album, presenting a true artistic talent as he seamlessly combines both. The songs are able to speak for themselves in an organic way, and the result is a reflection of numerous styles, personalities, and instruments. With Vicious Things, the award winning, former blues circuit guitarist has moved from the basement to two of Louisianas top recording studios--Studio in the Country and Dockside Studio--and added four other Chicago based musicians: Stephen Bores (Bass/Ukelele/Vocals), Calvin Conway (Harmonica/Fiddle/Vocals), Jon Wade (Keys), and Mike Gock (Percussion).

Vicious Things, produced by Voo, himself, was recorded on analog Neve boards. No autotune, no big computer fixes, just humans making sounds-- a trait that Voo learned on the road with WC Handy award winner Eddie King. With a passion for lyrics and a gift for creating emotion with a guitar, Voo Davis encompasses all that is right about an independent musician in todays field of millions. Vicious Things brings genres together instead of separating them into a neat package of similarity. Its a real album in a time of one song releases.

Plugging Holes: Sometimes the Simplest Things Are Overlooked – Proactively Going After Security Weaknesses

O'Fallon, MO (PRWEB) March 7, 2005

"The availability of wireless components, resources and growing demand, emphasizes the need for both aggressive education and security services. This provides the opportunity to assist our residential and business customers by eliminating vulnerabilities that otherwise allow potential intruders to easily penetrate. Many security analysts estimate upwards to 70% of existing installed wireless networks are wide-open and unsecured. This is an incredible statistic and illustrates the lack of awareness in the market,” states Steve Douglas, President and Chief Executive Officer of Net-Net Tech, LLC.

“The media is successfully educating the public of on-line security and identity theft. However, unsecured wireless networks are often overlooked. Compromising a wireless network is tremendously easy. Anyone with a small amount of knowledge, notebook computer, and easily obtain software can compromise an unsecured wireless network within less than two minutes inside a car parked in an adjacent lot. Information stored on computers attached to these networks typically contain mission critical data.”

Net-Net Tech, LLC's security services integrate a number of measurements ensuring a complete identification. Customer facilities, with existing wireless networks, are surveyed, audited and documented. Net-Net Tech provides additional resources which include anti-virus software, firewall, and other packaged solutions. A solution entails a complete tightening of the existing infrastructure and a complimentary layer of additional services as needed. Net-Net Tech, LLC services are a value-added solution for business and residential customers.

Net-Net Tech, LLC is a service technology leader headquartered in O'Fallon, MO that provides data, voice, telecom. Net-Net Tech offers a complete IP based private-label NuvioVoice and NuvioCentrex replacing existing telephony infrastructure.
