NBC The Voice Team Gwen Kota Wade’s Music Video Takes On Addiction


Kota Wade of Bad Wolf in 'Good Intentions'

NBC The Voice Season 9 Kota Wade

We’re using our art and music to engage viewers in a conversation about addiction and other demons people face.

Lead vocalist for L.A.-based rock band Bad Wolf and former Season 9 NBC The Voice contestant Kota Wade symbolically tackles the harsh realities of addiction in her group’s new music video for their single “Good Intentions.” With over 789,000 channel views on YouTube, Bad Wolf’s latest release is quickly making waves in the alternative music scene and poises Wade as the definitive voice of her generation and genre.

In its YouTube release on New Year’s Day, “Good Intentions” garnered over 10,000 views within 24 hours and is an excellent precursor to a string of forthcoming releases from Wade and Bad Wolf this year. It combines the raw elements of a solid rock anthem with the visual overtones of an inner, nearly spiritual struggle.

Fondly characterized by fans as “fantasy-rock,” Bad Wolf’s sound delivers the angst of groups such as Paramore and Evanescence along with theatrics reminiscent of Panic! At The Disco. Coupled with Wade’s prominent YouTube influencer platform on her “Steamfaerie” channel totaling views of over 39 million, the rock group simply cannot be ignored. The newborn success of their latest single adds to the group’s list of accolades which includes sharing the stage with the likes of Echosmith; 2014 Telly Award for Best Music Video; and one of Music Connection Magazine’s Top 100 Unsigned Bands .

Bad Wolf’s next single “Ashes” and video will be released in mid-February.
