Rodney Wild

— Rodney Wild —
Rising Star in the West
Lyricist/Singer/Songwriter, from Los Angeles, dissecting life with critical thought

With Trinidadian roots, Wild was born in LA and spent his childhood in the undertow of the city, but visualizing the consequences of what might be a dangerous life for him, his family moved to the Central Coast of California. In his writing, Wild pays homage to the journey that gave him insight into the lives of the “haves” versus the struggle of the “have-nots”.

At 17, Wild began writing lyrics. After hearing E40, Wild seemed to have a connection to him that resonated with his Northern California experience. Thinking and writing more deeply and seriously, by early 2010, it was obvious–Wild was prolific and enigmatic. His writing style is down-to-earth consciousness led by the broad influences of Andre 3000, Big L, Slick Rick, Jimmy Hendrix, Prince, Outkast, Strictly Roots, and the great Wailing Souls and Burning Spear of Reggae fame.

In his upcoming album, Multiple Personality Disorder for release in mid 2013, Wild questions the listener’s social motivations. He asks “why?”, but he’s much more interested in “why not?” He prompts thoughtful introspection of a different take on the same things that have been talked about for generations. Give him a song that's been done before, and Rodney will kick it back and present it in a way that’s out of this galaxy.

With the singles, “Average Joe”, “Lost Her (Back n Kali)”, “Do You Want Sex”, and “iDream”, he shares his cultural observations, personal perspective and an honest worldview indigenous to his lifetime, which exceeds his years on this earth.

Rodney Wild brings a collection of music and a live show that will allow listeners to leave feeling better about their lives than they had before. He really hopes to bring a sense of community with his audience that leaves them feeling–they know him and could see themselves being comfortable around him as just another person–an Average Joe…
