BURBANK, CA--(Marketwire - November 17, 2010) -  The digital version of "Love Like Woe," the first single from Sire/Decaydance Records artist THE READY SET has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. The JR Rotem-produced "Love Like Woe," off The Ready Set's debut EP "I'm Alive I'm Dreaming," is climbing radio and sales charts across the country. The track is currently #15 on the Mainstream Top 40 airplay chart, with over 25 million in audience and growing every week. "Love Like Woe" is also #27 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart and #25 on the Digital Songs Chart.

The Ready Set is 21-year-old Indiana-born drummer, singer, songwriter and keyboardist Jordan Witzigreuter, who creates infectious, danceable pop designed for fun. I'm Alive, I'm Dreaming is the first release from the joint venture between Sire Records and Pete Wentz's Decaydance Records.

MTV has been an early supporter of The Ready Set. Witzigreuter spent the summer on the MTV VMA tour with "Never Shout Never," performed live on the finale of the TJ competition and was selected for MTV's coveted "PUSH" & "POSTED" artist programs.
