Imagine writing a song, sending it off under a pseudonym, and having it picked up immediately with a nice paycheck sprinkled on top. This is the story of how Zayde Wolf began.
Dustin Burnett has been writing and producing since he got his first drum machine, which he taught himself to use by re-creating "Closer" by Nine Inch Nails. Since then he has made adrenaline-fueled music that has been featured on many TV shows (Love Island, Shameless), video games (Steep, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Breakpoint) and in sporting arenas (Los Angeles Kings hockey).
In this episode of the Songfacts Podcast, we catch up with Dustin in his home studio to find out how after taking a crack at traditional pop music, he broke out through music licensing, and how it relates to social media and streaming. We also talk about his album Neon Blood Type, out on May 7, 2021.
