Raised in Missouri’s rugged Ozark Mountains and on Florida’s sunny Space Coast, Long first was lured into the professional entertainment world at age 15 when he promoted a local rock concert event as a student government project in 1978. By the 1990s, he was involved with bringing various top-name acts to concert stages throughout Florida’s central east coast.

The band scored a college radio hit in 1989 with the rap / metal single, “Butterbean Queen," and has been featured in such prestigious periodicals as Billboard and Thrasher. The latest Dead Serios record is set to arrive in 2018.

In the early 2000s, Long began establishing a reputation as entertainment writer and music journalist. He continues to contribute lively content to various outlets, including Ink19.com, MuenMagazine.net and PureGrainAudio.com.
