Vertigo Blue TM continues to create synthesizer based music with plans for more upcoming releases.

As the world presents with many interesting and winding moments and goings on... this is not the same Vertigo Blue from the H.S. Show nor any relationship to the engineer or staff from that show.  Vertigo Blue (also referenced as Vertigo Blue TM, the TM for the legal Trademark name) began in 1996 in Houston, Texas prior to that time period of the other rock band who is no longer using the name...

Past and Present:

At the start in 1996 Vertigo Blue as a trio had landed their song, "Christmas Day" on a Holiday compilation album, "CatClaus 96" released by the Synthpop network titled Control-Alt-Delete. That year, Colin Travis and Stacey Quebodeaux teamed up with Mike to release the song, "Christmas Day"... which is now available on the Vertigo Blue TM Bandcamp Page and for listening on the Vertigo Blue TM YouTube Channel.  After completion, Colin and Stacey returned to their other music projects. Mike continued as Vertigo Blue in a solo role initially composing experimental Electronica and signed with the Ultra Trec Records label in 1998 releasing an EP titled, "To The Future". Other of his compositions found their way onto numerous Electronica compilation albums released by We Records. In 2001 Mike started his own record label, Ozmotic Records which would continue to be the home label for Vertigo Blue TM.

Vertigo Blue  music releases are found by the name Vertigo Blue TM  in both physical and digital format which include albums: Area 51, Evolution, Abstract 1-10 (Concept Album), Frequencies From The Moon, DUSK, Apollo 13 (EP) and singles including  Raven In The Snow  and  Can We Take A Picture. These music releases are available on many online music locations including i Tunes, Amazon, beatsmusic, Tidal and can be heard on MTV artists beta, i Heart Radio, YouTube as well as at most online digital music streaming locations worldwide. Additional singles including two versions of  "Christmas Day",  an EP "To The Future"  and Abstract 1-10 concept album by Vertigo Blue TM can be found at the Vertigo Blue TM Bandcamp page which includes ALL Vertigo Blue TM music releases.

Presenting and Represented:

With quite a few years of working with synthesizers and as the artist Vertigo Blue, Mike has had the honor to be a Guest Speaker at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas and also at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas... presenting a panel discussion on Creating Music with Synthesizers.

Vertigo Blue - Michael Naus Jr.'s compositions are on file and represented by BMI (Broadcast Music Inc.). A catalog of instrumental and vocal based compositions are available for film, television and commercial use. For more information, contact Vertigo Blue via the below email address.
