WILD is a Los Angeles based trio comprised of Lauren Luiz (vocals), Tyler Thompson (producer/bass) and Zach Daegatano (guitar/vocals). Hailing from Portland, Minneapolis, and Boston respectively, their paths did not intertwine until Tyler and Zach met through a mutual friend and began writing songs together. The only thing missing was the right singer who could complement their soulful melodies with pop sensibilities. It was not until Tyler and Zach met Lauren in 2016 through Tyler’s roommate that they felt complete. Lauren’s powerful vocals and strong topline was the perfect fit.
Their first single “Vagabond,” which they independently released, has over 5 million streams. The song caught the attention of Mark Jowett, one of the founders of Nettwerk Music Group (Passenger, Angus & Julia), who promptly signed them.
To date, WILD has over 378,000 listeners a month and over 15 million combined streams on Spotify which has catapulted them to features on key Spotify playlists like “Run Wild,” “New Music Friday,” “Young and Free,” “Indiepop,” and more. They have also been featured on Sirius XM’s “Train Tracks with Pat Monahan” on The Pulse, “Youtube 15″ with Jenna Marbles, Mr. Suicide Sheep, Indie Obsessive, Impose Magazine and on The Au Review. They secured a sync for the track “For You” in a Pepsi commercial in 2016 and have an upcoming sync for “Bonnie & Clyde” on MTV’s Catfish. In 2017, they played SXSW and on the Main Stage at Bottlerock Festival in Napa, CA. They have worked with several multi-platinum writers including David Hodges (Christina Perri, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban) and Shep Goodman (American Authors, MisterWives, Ingrid Michaelson) on their upcoming EP due out in 2018.
