AUSTIN, TX. (Top40 Charts/ UE3 Promotions) The Stanford Cardinal had just lost their first football game of the season to the Oregon Ducks, and the "Stanford Rocks" event afterwards could have been a somber affair - but Larissa Ness got the party started, lifting everyone's spirits with a simple buoyant message: "Let It Go."

That song, the first single and newly released video from her latest indie album Break The Mold, was part of the Austin based pop-electronic artist's powerhouse 30 minute set opening for pop superstars Maroon 5 and rock legend Tommy Lee, who showcased his latest work as an electronic DJ.

Fronting an 11-piece ensemble that included a violinist, djembe player, conga and backup dancers that looked and grooved like The Pussycat Dolls, Ness complemented her vocals with two flute solos and a piano solo. By the end of her show, the crowd was singing along to "Let It Go" and cheering for more - a vibe that was the perfect set up for the main show by Adam Levine and Maroon 5, who opened with "Moves Like Jagger."

For Ness, the high profile gig is the second of three events that find her opening for rock royalty. Last month, she opened for Bon Jovi in Orlando and in a few weeks, she is opening for Bret Michaels. Before the Stanford-Oregon game, Ness also played a tailgate party, setting the stage for Vince Neil.

An infectious, ultra-danceable collection which showcases Ness' remarkable evolution as an electronic pop singer/songwriter, Break The Mold features a remix on the opening track "Inhibitions" from Grammy-nominated J Scott G, formerly of Deepsky, known for remixing music industry monsters like Madonna and Adam Lambert. The provocative, suspenseful video for "Let It Go" was produced by Papertank Productions, who recently helmed Blue October's music video for "The Chills."
