International recording artist DAMIAN WILD was born in the Bronx, NY and was born to sing. DAMIAN began his career at the age of eleven as a choirboy in a local church choir, an experience he found less than heavenly:
"The hymns we used to sing in church were totally boring. I wanted to sing something soulful and funky."
After falling from the choir's grace (DAMIAN still insists to this day that he had something on when he lifted his choir robe in front of a packed congregation, although reliable church eyewitnesses say otherwise!) DAMIAN decided it was either the entertainment industry or reform school, so he chose what many people would consider to be the unwise choice: The Entertainment Industry!
DAMIAN'S first single "YOU'RE MY FANTASY", released by Media Records in Italy burned up dance floors across Italy, Germany and the United States. DAMIAN penned his follow-up, "LOVE WON'T LET YOU DOWN", which was released in Europe on Radikal Records. DAMIAN has also appeared on several dance compilations including STYLIN'FREE: THE ALTERNATIVE DANCE COMPILATION , RADIKAL HOUSE PARTY, and on a Hot Tracks underground DJ compilation along with such notable acts as Moby, Sasha, Angelmoon, among others. DAMIAN'S next single "SAY YOU WANT ME" produced by DJ/producer Chris "The Greek" Panaghi and featuring remixes by the legendary Guido Osorio, of the world-famous production team Razor and Guido, was a staple of dance floors and radio mix shows all over the globe.
DAMIAN'S debut release on AMATHUS MUSIC entitled "ANOTHER HEARTACHE" garnered worldwide attention and global radio and mixshow airplay. DAMIAN'S followup single,"READY TO FLY AWAY" received an even bigger reception, firing up DJ mixshow playlists from Belgium to Mexico and was a featured track on the cd compilation "CHRIS THE GREEK PANAGHI - WORKING THE MIX" on Water Music Records/Universal. DAMIAN's third release on AMATHUS, "LOVE WILL FIND A WAY," was featured on instore playlists for retailers such as ABERCROMBIE & FITCH, ADIDAS, TOMMY HILFIGER and on AMERICAN AIRLINES.
DAMIAN is currently in the studio with production dynamo ELECTRIK PULSE, working on several new tracks for his upcoming debut album on AMATHUS MUSIC. The featured new single off the album, "OVER NOW" is slated for worldwide release in August 2007. Other producers and remixers featured on the album include Chris "The Greek" Panaghi, Keven Maroda and Themi Charalambous.
Musically, DAMIAN finds inspiration in various styles of music, but was heavily influenced growing up by classic artists from Motown and the disco era; by Madonna and the 80s dance scene; and by everything else in between!
In an industry where performers come and go, DAMIAN WILD is here to stay.
