Nomadic indie singer/songwriter Kenny Collette, who performs under the moniker Lazarus Wilde, has signed a deal with Cardigan Records (Greaver, Time Spent Driving, Youth League). The NC record label will release Lazarus Wilde’s self-titled EP on August 5th.
“I’m really excited to be on board with Cardigan,” says Collette. “Shane really believes in my music and it’s nice to have that support system and have a team who wants to push their artists to be the best versions of themselves and succeed.“
Lazarus Wilde was started to record songs as a creative outlet for Kenny personally, as well as chronicle the time and people he has met throughout his entire life travels. He’s lived everywhere from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, all the way to California & Puerto Rico. Many of the early incarnations of the new EP started while he spent time living on a boat.
“The 4 songs are in some respects all cohesive in a lyrical context,” says Collette. “It tells the story of an individual who struggles with self worth and their identity. I know it sounds depressing as hell, BUT I feel it can relate to a lot of people in various ways such as those who have suffered from bi polar disorder, suicide awareness, etc.“
The self-titled EP will be available on August 5th via iTunes and http://www.cardiganrecords.com/.
Lazarus Wilde was created in early 2015 by Kenny Collette. This project was started to demo and record songs as a creative outlet for Kenny personally, as well as for people he has met throughout his entire life travels. Whether it was through touring, or starting another chapter of his life in another city, people have always been interested in what Kenny had to say.
Kenny being a nomad of sorts has lived everywhere from New Jersey and Pennsylvania, all the way to California & Puerto Rico. He has even lived on a boat for a couple months as well. During these different times in his life, he would write and record raw, passionate demos and give them to whomever he was staying with or recording for.
During the creation and writings of Lazarus Wilde. Kenny has fronted in a couple of bands as well. The bands include: Skeeto, Lady Radiator, The Murder and the Harlot and currently fronting Victory Dance. All of these have shaped Kenny to whom he has come to be. Never regretting any experience, but learning from them.
