Imagine if Jack Kerouac and James Dean went on a road trip, made a pit stop in Brooklyn for wine and whiskey, and took turns picking up hipsters at the bar. This is the world as seen through the eyes of Wilder Daze, one of the most exciting new artists of the year.

Hot on the heels of his viral debut single Sad by Nature, Wilder Daze is back with Roseboy, a wild and thrilling look at a love that will break all the rules. Combining vintage elements of rockabilly, Americana, and rock, alongside an addictive dance groove, Roseboy is the perfect summer jam. Produced by Lynn Verlayne Studio (Buscemi, Mark Plati, Scott Jacoby), Roseboy is at once recognizable amongst classic rock songs like “A Little Less Conversation (Elvis)” while maintaining a modern spin.

“I have always been fascinated by how love can change people in different ways. Sometimes they’re transformed into an entirely different person because of it. Roseboy is about finding and losing love, being transformed in the process, and the nonstop reveling in between.”

Inspired by vintage artists like Elvis Presley, Allen Ginsberg, and Johnny Cash, Wilder Daze brings a wholly unique perspective on art, society, & culture to the table.
“I choose to see the beauty in everything, and it stays with you. It becomes a part of you. It frees you.”

Some have called him the east coast male counterpart to Lana del Rey, a poetic soul clinging to an era that was built on sexual and personal discovery, creative exploration, and rock & roll, with a penchant for living fast and dying young.

The music video is a time capsule from a bygone era, a testament to Wilder’s unpredictable charisma, his romantic soul, and his relentless spirit. It is a celebration of in-the-moment passion.
Roseboy is a love revolution.

Wilder is currently working on a full length debut record with his writing and production team at Lynn Verlayne Studio. His goal is to bring a message of beauty and free expression to millions, and is building a wildly eclectic fan base of artists and millennials alike. Similar minds looking to live fast, die young, and love free.
