Biography,Early life and careerAs a child singing prodigy, he was a member of the Metropolitan Opera Childrens Chorus, appearing in numerous productions in both the Old Met and the New Met at Lincoln Center. At the age of 16, he was the youngest student ever to receive a Key Scholarship award from Herbert Berghof acting school (HB Studio) in Greenwich Village. At 17, he was accepted as a voice and theater major at the Indiana University School of Music, where he studied with Norwegian Bass/Baritone Roy Samuelson of the New York City Opera.As a teenager, he went on the road as a singer with Doc Severinsen and The Tonight Show Band, working with Lew Tabackin, Ed Shaughnessy, Snookie Young, Ross Tompkins and Buddy Rich.His first professional musical theatre role was that of Hero in a tour of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum with Zero Mostel. Shortly after, he created the role of Henry Anderson in the original Broadway cast of Shenandoah starring John Cullum, which originally premiered at the Goodspeed Opera House. Subsequent acting work: leads in Vagabond Stars a pre-Broadway piece at the Berkshire Theater Festival with lyrics written by the Newsrooms Executive Producer/Director Alan Poul, Pirates of Penzance with Karla DeVito, and the LA company of Sam Shepards Curse of the Starving Class with Gary Sinise and James Gammon .However, it was not until his supporting lead in a small National Endowment for the Arts film No Regrets directed by Ruth Charny and produced by Ellen Sherman (see Dateline NBC) and his subsequent lead in the Broadway rock musical Marlowe along with Patrick Jude and Lisa Mordente that he came to the attention of the New York music industry, in particular rock impresario Ron Delsner, who encouraged him to begin his own recording career.EBN-OZN and DADA NADAAustin, Texas-based producer Jay Aaron Podolnick introduced Rosen to Ned Liben, then the owner of New Yorks Sundragon Recording Studios, and a music prodigy in his own right. Liben had built his first professional studio at the age of 14 and by the time he met Rosen had worked with Jimi Hendrix, The Talking Heads, The Ramones and a host of New Yorks rockers.Their initial collaboration, AEIOU Sometimes Y was recorded in 1981 (released in 1982) and was the first American record to ever be completely executed on a computer (a Fairlight CMI). AEIOU was a bizarre mix of rap, spoken word, digital sampling, rock and R&B dance music. Liben and Rosen cut their own 12-inch dance single which was instantly signed by Arista Records in London and in New York by Elektra Records President Bob Kraznow before the band even had a name, which eventually became Ebn-Ozn. AEIOU went Top 20 on the Billboard Magazine Club Chart, establishing OZN as one of the first white rappers in the industry. AEIOUs video, an LA Times Top 10 Video of the Year, received enormous domestic and international exposure and was featured on Beavis and Butthead through the 90s.Ebn-Ozns first full-length album, Feeling Cavalier, released by Elektra in 1984, went Top 20 on the College Radio Chart and their second single, Bag Lady (I Wonder) went Top 40 on the Billboard Club Chart. The video for Bag Lady starred Imogene Coca and like AEIOU, enjoyed worldwide television and club play.After the duos split up in 1985, EBN went on to run his exclusive SOHO studio working with Scritti Politti and Arif Mardin, while OZN moved to Los Angeles and started his own label, One Voice Records and his own solo act, Dada Nada.Dada Nada got a distribution deal with Polydor/UK and he distributed it himself in North America, landing two Top 5 Billboard Charting dance hits, Haunted House (the first House record by a white artist to chart in North America) and Deep Love.OZNs collaborators on Dada Nada tracks included the legendary Godfather of House the late Frankie Knuckles and House music pioneers Bad Boy Bill, David Morales, Mike Hitman Wilson, Steve Wight (now an associate professor of recording arts at Cal State), and Bob Greenberg.OZNs last public appearance was the 1990 U.S. Dada Nada tour, which suffered a shooting incident during a show in Chicago.EBN died in 1998 of a heart attack in Soho, New York and is survived by his wife Sallie Moore Liben and son Max Liben.In April 2015, Ozn announced on Facebook and Twitter that he was making his first record in 25 years inspired by the Charlie Hebdo assassinations, Je Suis Paris!. An anthem for the growing, global pro-peace, anti-terror movement, he produced and wrote the track with Gabe Lopez, who works with Belinda Carlisle, supported by Julian Coryell, son of jazz legend Larry Coryell and guitarist for (Alanis Morissette), Chris Golden bass player for hip hop star Exzibit, Gibi Dos Santos Sergio Mendes long-time Brazilian percussionist, and background vocalists Mindy Jones of Moby and Mark Strom of the boy band Innovate.Released in summer 2016 with remixes by Richard Cutmore, House of Virus and Mntna, the records U.K. release peaked at #13 on the Music Week Commercial Pop Dance Chart in October 2016, after Ozn recorded additional vocals with the lyric I Am Orlando in reference to the Orlando, Florida Pulse nightclub anti-gay terror attack, establishing it as an LGBT anthem through the United Kingdom .Film Industry CareerOZN went on to a producing and screenwriting career in the film business.He worked first for free for Oliver Stone and Janet Yangs Ixtlan Films, trading his time in exchange for learning the development and production end of the movie business.

However, it remains un-produced,OZN and writer/producer Colin Greene (now a Vice-President at Sony Studios) sold Storm Warning, a $100 million-plus film, to Paramount for producer Mario Kassar, making the front page of the Daily Variety.
