Zayde Wølf is the indie rock solo project of Dustin Burnett, a chart-topping songwriter and Grammy-nominated producer. At the end of 2015, Dustin began working with the L.A.-based licensing company Lyric House. The company sent him a custom opportunity to create a song for a movie trailer, and Burnett -unable to find someone else to sing on the track- decided to record his own vocals. The company loved the result.
What had begun as a movie trailer project had expanded into something unique: a new musical project called Zayde Wølf. The response was tremendous, with more than 100 movie trailers, video games, TV shows and promos, and other outlets licensing Zayde Wølf's music. Placements such as the movie trailer for Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher, XBox's FarCry Primal video game trailer, the Rio Olympics, UFC, MTV's Teen Wolf, Showtime's Shameless, the movie trailer for Rio, I Love You, NBC's the Night Shift, ABC's hit show Dancing With The Stars, to name a few.
Zayde Wølf's debut album Golden Age was released last year and features 13 songs fueled by aggressive guitars, gang vocals, sweeping soundscapes, stomping percussion, and pop hooks: a mix of melody and muscle, groove and guitar, old habits and new beginnings.
Last Friday, March 3, Zayde Wølf released The Hidden Memoir, a new 4-track EP that includes Built For This Time, the first ZW song ever written, re-invented with a cinematic mood. This in turn sparked the idea to create a music video around the new version. This video's protagonist is played by Burnett's youngest son and borrows part of its narrative from the classic Little Red Riding Hood tale, peppered in with the dark and eerie aesthetic of Netflix's Stranger Things.
The Hidden Memoir showcases Zayde Wølf's signature sound: powerful, adrenaline-rushing, alternative-pop songs that will appeal to fans of Imagine Dragons, Bastille, OneRepublic, X Ambassadors, The Black Keys.
