Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, Morty Shallman, specializes in super-melodic pop-rock tunes with a literary twist. His latest CD, "Love's Oblivion," is actually a unique "pop novel," told in a series of twelve hook-filled song "chapters." His next project is a full-length novel with an accompanying CD.
In addition to writing, producing and performing his own music, Morty recently collaborated with top Nickelodeon TV star, Drake Bell, and Brian Wilson band member, Scott Bennett, on a tune for Bell's solo CD, "Telegraph." The song, "Highway to Nowhere," is featured on "The Drake & Josh Show," on another popular MTVN show, "Zoey 101," starring Jamie Lynn Spears, and on several top-selling Nick/BMG soundtrack CD's.

Praise for Morty Shallman:
Shallman's music is buoyant, infectious & car-radio ready! -Chicago Sun-Times
A fabulous find! -Gary Gold, Indiejournal.com
Loves Oblivion combines Shallman's lyrical incisiveness with a musical approach that measures favorably against the established melodic yardstick of The Beach Boys and the bluntness of the "This Year's Model" era of Elvis Costello.-Brad Harvey, Daily News
