Carlos Wilde is an underground radio, independent artist who has already tasted a modicum of success. His debut CD, Cocktail, was a runner up in the 2005 International Online Music Awards for best album and best cover art. Two tracks from that CD were also featured in an Arts program on “Localia TV”. He’s going for it again with his recently released EP Not A Tortoise.
Not a Tortoise is a fitting title for this fast paced power/pop/punk album. It consists of a collection of sounds from many sub genres of rock, ranging in styles from the garage rock sound Love Me to power punk vibes of Livin on a High.
Though Carlos’ songwriting and performing technique is quite eclectic, pulling his inspiration from many influences from rock, pop and soul music, he has a sound that is distinctly his own. Regardless of the emotion Carlos expresses through his music there is a consistency and originality of style throughout the album that is recognizably Carlos Wilde.
He can have us jumpin’ along with him, carefree and rebellious in the power pop music of Rok Ma Wurld then turn us around to get serious in the alternative rock sound of Am I Evil.
As with many independent artists Carlos has many online links in which his music can be previewed and purchased from. For more Carlos Wilde please use the links below.
