ZAYDE WØLF WELCOMES YOU TO “THE JUNGLE”
“ZAYDE is simply the dark rock child of Imagine Dragons and The Black Keys…”
- Ones to Watch
For his newest single “The Jungle” released on 8/25, ZAYDE WØLF mastermind Dustin Burnett channels the memories of the small town of Metropolis, Illinois where he grew up. The town is known as the “Superman Town,” and boasts a larger than life Superman statue in the town’s “Superman Square” paying tribute to the alter-ego of the town’s favorite fictional son Clark Kent. The song reflects on the idea of this “super human” town, which in reality is a tiny river town that has become a shadow of its former self.
The song boasts of ZAYDE WØLF’s signature huge chorus’, driving drum beats with powerful lyrics about grit and survival that have lead to ZAYDE WØLF building an exceptionally loyal and enthusiastic fan base. ZAYDE WØLF receives regular messages and feedback from fans about the powerful and positive impact that his music has had on their lives. From fans who used his music in an anti-bullying film, to a Mother who’s autistic children found comfort in his music, to a 14 year old girl who always wanted to get into boxing but was intimidated by the gym. ZAYDE WØLF’s music was her main source of motivation, and she now attends regularly. The girl’s Mother has noted even noted the last WØLF single, “Brave” as her main source of inspiration after losing a child and will now be walking out to the song when she herself goes to fight her first boxing match.
ZAYDE WØLF is the creation of Nashville based Billboard chart topping songwriter and two time Grammy nominated producer Dustin Burnett who started his music career as the frontman of The October. After years of touring Burnett decided to primarily focus on writing and producing. He found success working behind the scenes as a writer, producer and mixer working with artists such as Tyrone Wells, Us the Duo, Augustana, Dave Barnes and more. He is also the co-founder of That Sound, a boutique drum sampling company that has become the go-to for songwriters, producers and mixers looking for unique drums sounds and samples.
At the end of 2015, he 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 began as a movie trailer project expanded into something unique: a new musical project called ZAYDE WØLF, which combined Burnett's history as a producer with his talents as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist.
To date ZAYDE WØLF’s music has been heard in hundreds of films, trailers, TV shows and commercials. From shows like Younger, Wynonna Earp, Shameless, Teen Wolf, The Night Shift and Born This Way to trailers for Jack Reacher 2 Never Go Back, Gold, Rio I Love You, spots for UFC, the NFL, the NBA, Olympics and more.
