Dmitry Wild - Rock-n-Roll is My Business

Dmitry Wild - Rock-n-Roll is My Business

New York-based garage rock purveyor Dmitry Wild presents a fiery new video in support of his latest 2-track single 'Rock-n-Roll Is My Business / Son of a Gun'. He earlier shared the video for the B-side 'Son of a Gun', full of swagger in a bright, eclectic reflection of the song's alluring "world is my oyster' message.

Recorded at the Amsterdam Castle in upstate New York, Wild impersonates the hardest working figure behind the music business in a kind of “A day in the life of…” as Diablo rides to work in a black mustang, signing contracts, playing vintage guitar and dancing around with the cast. The Rockstar is played by Jesse D. Leach (Killswitch Engage) and The Father is played by Byron Frayne, who also recorded the B-side 'Son of a Gun'. The video also features burlesque dancer and upcoming singer Tryst La Noir and Purple Goddess, who was the top pole dancer appearing on tour with Snoop Dog. 

Produced by Dmitry Wild, 'Rock-n-Roll is My Business' was mixed and mastered by Will Hensley (Coldplay, Travis, Dream Theater, Ben Folds, Shakira, My Morning Jacket, The Wombats), the title track beingrecorded by Andy Cass at Sleeper Cave Records in Western Mass, MA.

'Rock-n-Roll Is My Business' was inspired by an experience Dmitry Wild had at a business convention. When asked “What is your business?”, he understood he was at odds with the other business people and specialists in attendance, ultimately answering "Rock-n-Roll Is My Business'.

Most recently, Dmitry Wild released the single 'New York Stones', a rock ballad dedicated to New York City, in July, following up his 2002 album 'Electric Souls', which presented a clever blend of 70’s vintage rock, 80s synths, garage rock, bluesy swash and post-punk DIY ethos.

The 2-track 'Rock N Roll is My Business' single is out now, available from fine online music platforms, including Apple Music, Spotify and Bandcamp, where Wild's full catalogue can also be explored.
