Biography

Time•less mu•sic [time-less myoo-zik]
Wonderlust is a 4-piece NYC-based Pop/Rock outfit that defines the term timeless music, by creating songs that supersede all current trends, fads, & “flavors of the week”. The music is universally appealing and memorable; with themes of love, desire, heartbreak, and lust that shatter all cultural & generational boundaries. They have been compared in the press to the likes of other timeless artists, such as Maroon 5, Coldplay, and John Mayer. Wonderlust’s four members are Fred Niznik (lead vocals, principle songwriter, & rhythm guitar), Steve Gregoire (lead guitar), Pete Cetinich (drums), and Cody Darbe (bass guitar & background vocals). They are set to release their first single, “Hide Out”, in July 2008, followed by “Good Morning Sunshine” in August ’08. Both songs are produced by Anand Gan & Doug Davis of Flytrap Productions, and mixed by Grammy-Winning engineer Ken Lewis (John Legend, Soul Asylum, Usher).

Wonderlust was formed in the autumn of 2007, after three of its members (Fred, Steve, & Pete) had a successful run from 2005-2007 as “FN-Co.” FN-Co. played a variety of colleges, universities, festivals, and clubs all over the U.S., as well as performing dates with the likes of Clarence Clemons (of the E-Street Band), Third Eye Blind, and Ben Folds. The band even went as far as having its music placed on popular MTV shows such as “The Hills”, “The Real World”, & “Two-A-Days”. Its ever-expanding fan base was strengthened by the media, with television appearances on PBS, as well as a myriad of interviews, features, and reviews in newspapers, magazines, and web sites throughout the country. After 2 years together and 6K MySpace fans, the band decided to change their name from FN-Co. (an acronym for Fred Niznik & Company) to Wonderlust. The new name represents the undeniable bond they have developed over the years, and breaks the mold of “a band backing up a lead singer.” Insert the multi-talented musician/vocalist Cody Darbe into the mix, and you have the current and most exciting line-up to date.

Wonderlust has also played in-stores at various Bloomingdale's, and are involved in certain charities such as Save Darfur and Action Against Hunger
