Still, in the early years of his music career, Warren Zeiders has already established himself as a country outlaw artist, and people look forward to hearing more from him. His style is characterized by stripped-down and haunting tunes paired with his gritty and energetically youthful voice. His way of composing and creating melodies have been the main ingredients to why his debut single, "Ride the Lightning," became viral on Tiktok. There is so much to expect from this rising country musician.
Warren grew up in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Coming from a family that is not musically inclined, his exposure to music came from the church as he sang hymns. He never really thought of it as a potential career in his future. However, his life changed when he decided to dabble in songwriting during the COVID-19 pandemic. During the lockdowns, he decided to upload one of his songs entitled "Ride the Lightning" to the popular social media platform Tiktok. Overnight the video garnered thousands of views, which grew to hundreds of thousands and then millions in a matter of weeks. In a snap of a finger, his life transformed. He embraced it enthusiastically since he wanted to break free from the monotonous experience of the year. This breakout success led to him achieving more opportunities.
From Tiktok, "Ride the Lightning" went on to chart on Billboard. This would propel his debut EP, "717 Tapes." At only 22, he was already reaching heights in the country music scene like any other artist. To gain more traction, he began covering songs from artists like Jason Isbell, Afroman, and Tyler Childers. Also, he snatched an opportunity to duet with country singer Craig Campbell.
In 2022, he was signed with Warner Records, a huge leap in his career. The label pushed forward his past records and brought them to radio airplay. Also, his second EP, "Pretty Little Poison (Sampler)," was produced under the label.
His goal during these early years of his career is to explore and innovate more on his style. More works are to be expected from him!
On his tour this year, one of his stops is at the Stage AE on Saturday, September 16. Mark your calendars and see this concert!
