UConMag.com Presents Its 'Art & Music' Issue With Blondie's Chris Stein & Gorman Studio, Formerly of Belly

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2007 --United Creators, an exclusive and ground-breaking fine arts organization dedicated to exposing emerging and innovative artistic global talent, is proud to announce the third issue of its online arts publication, UConMag.com. This special 'Art & Music' issue of UConMag.com features exclusive interviews with Chris Stein, guitarist and songwriter of the legendary band Blondie, and Gorman Studio, comprised of musicians-turned-photographers Chris and Tom Gorman, formerly of the Grammy-nominated alternative band Belly. In candid interviews not published in any other magazine, Chris Stein and Gorman Studio discuss their prolific and creative careers as both innovative artists and visionary musicians.

Chris Stein, along with his bandmates in Blondie, is a recent 2006 inductee in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In UConMag.com's 'Art & Music' issue, Mr. Stein discusses his photography, his involvement with the edgy and underground cult show "TV Party," collaborating with Andy Warhol and his band of the last 30 years, Blondie.

Prior to establishing Gorman Studio, an inventive commercial photography workspace in NYC, Chris and Tom Gorman respectively played drums and guitar in the Grammy-nominated '90's alternative band Belly. While still in Belly, budding photographer and designer Chris Gorman collaborated with Vaughan Oliver, principal graphic designer of 4AD Records, a label known for both its eclectic and unusual roster of alternative musical acts and its visually opulent artwork packaging. Chris Gorman's early photography and design work with 4AD Records was a catalyst for the future work he would create alongside his brother Tom in Gorman Studio. In UConMag.com's 'Art & Music' issue, Chris and Tom Gorman discuss their individual creative processes, early beginnings as photographers, collaborating with Vaughan Oliver and 4AD Records and life with their former band Belly.

UConMag.com's 'Art & Music' issue also profiles progressive image-makers and musicians who seamlessly integrate art into music (and vice versa) such as: Massive Attack's Robert '3-D' Del Naja, designer Peter Saville, photographer Nick Knight and Showstudio.com, Icelandic band Sigur Ros and indie film director Hal Hartley.
