Learn more about DC Glenn/DC the Brain Supreme of Tag Team
DC met Steve Rowland in High School and ended up in a band together. DC sang in a choir and played the piano and trumpet. He saw a turntable and mixer at a high school dance and knew he’d become a DJ. One of the first songs he wrote, “Whoomp There It Is,” became one of the biggest records ever recorded. It went platinum in a month-and-a-half.
DC notes that he made bad decisions from a lack of experience. Sadly, he got into a legal battle when his record company went bankrupt. Another record company bought them out of bankruptcy, but DC lost the rights to his music in the mess. He vowed that would never happen again. He learned what the case was about, how to craft a motion, and how to find someone to take his case.
They went through 50 motions to get his lawsuit into court. He put together a discovery file with every piece of information they had. He learned that things will happen and you can’t get mad—you just have to be prepared. So he’s dedicated his life to helping educate other artists so they don’t make the same mistakes.
DC forged ahead and created his own way
In 2003, Will Ferrell was dancing to his song in the movie, “Elf.” DC knew he had an evergreen product and a forever hit record. He knew it was up to him to get his money. Shortly after, he became a licensed commodities broker. He worked at three firms while still DJing at clubs. His record company had depleted his money, so he had to work. It’s how CLG Investments Inc formed.
He worked with someone at Edward Jones to invest his money. They crafted a plan to take his money and start putting it into SEP IRAs, Roth IRAs, hedge funds, etc. It worked. It elevated his investing IQ. He continued to use his song—even though he wasn’t making any money from it—to get shows, commercials, etc.
Listen to learn how DC is constantly innovating and educating himself to further his career.
How DC Glenn fought his way back to success with “Scoop There It Is”
In August 2020, his agent called him and told him that he had booked a Geico commercial. He thought she was messing with him until he checked his phone and saw the message. His agents made this commercial the most lucrative deal he’s ever made. The commercial was cast perfectly and they had an amazing time.
But he landed the commercial in the middle of the Covid pandemic and he couldn’t find a publicist that would take him on. So he joined The Public Relations Society of America the week of the Super Bowl. He was on a podcast with the CEO and asked if a press release was still relevant. He shared his commercial on that podcast and it changed his life forever.
How being a voice-over artist moved DC’s career forward
DC notes that the pandemic was the best thing that ever happened to him. He started doing voiceover work in 2009 and struggled. 10 years later, he tried again. Now he does voiceovers for commercials, promos, animated movies, and trailers. Now, he’s getting 10 requests for auditions a day. He gets booked instantly. He started taking acting classes and booked his first national commercial for Pizza Hut in February 2020.
DC learned that in life there are no mistakes and missed opportunities. Sometimes in life, you’re just not ready. He does amazing things because someone told him that he couldn’t. He continues to prove them wrong. He prepares for everything and seeks to become a master. He views obstacles as opportunities.
