Dustin Burnett was born with music in his blood. After his time fronting the band The October came to an end, he decided to focus more behind the scenes, writing, producing and mixing for other artists. But in 2015, everything changed. Burnett was working with licensing company Lyric House on a movie trailer project, and when he couldn't find anyone to sing vocals on a track he'd produced, he sang himself under the guise "Zayde Wolf." Fast forward a year and a half, and Burnett's racked up 22k YouTube subscribers and 205k followers on Spotify, all without touring.
His music is emotional, and that resonates with fans on a high level. "Brave", a track about the strength of relationships and having the courage to put you yourself in someone else's shoes, has struck a chord with fans from a mother of a child with Autism to a 14-year-old girl who always wanted to pursue boxing but was intimidated by the gym. "Being brave means hoping and believing that there is more to life than pain and struggle," Burnett says, and he keeps that mantra alive with his inspiring songs.
ARTISTdirect caught up with the producer/singer to talk about the track, his humble beginnings and hopes for the future.
