No Wyld Up For International Award

New Zealand rock/hip-hop band No Wyld is up for best emerging artist in the world in the second Pepsi International Music Industry Awards in Hollywood.


The ceremony will be at the Hollywood Roosevelt April 29 as part of MUSEXPO. Singer Brandon Black, guitarist Joe Pascoe, and rapper Mo Kheir are up against the UK’s Laurel, Germany’s Malky and Sweden’s Tove Stryke.

The outfit, which formed in 2010 while studying architecture, developed an online following 2012 debut album Preface on Dryden Street.

The track “Revolution” was synched to TV show “90210,” while “Odyssey” was used in a McDonald’s jingle during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

A tie-up with Red Bull saw the group cut an EP in the Red Bull Studios. No Wyld is represented by Paradigm Talent Agency for the U.S. and Artist Voice in Australia and New Zealand.
