Storytellers from greater Cincinnati with distinct Kentucky swagger.
Inspired by American songwriters, Wilder is rooted in tales of the common man, flanked by great melodies and three part harmonies. Formed by Kelly Thomas and Randy Steffen in 2014, around a simple idea... write songs that stand on their own. In the time since, the group has grown to add some texture. Wilder gained some outstanding musicians in guitarist Zach Rowe, bassist John Schmidt, and drummers Kevin Hogle & Christopher Alley. Wilder released their debut EP in May of 2015. They are working on their follow up, full length album.
