A Band That _____ Together…

You name it, we’re staying together. It’s 2015 now and Wildewood is almost five years old. Our first time playing as the trio we are today was at St. John’s Cathedral for a choir fundraiser. The set consisted of very old songs (from “Meredith Wilder” solo days) with acoustic guitar, pedal steel, and drums. No bass, no harmonica, no baritone guitar. Even without a band name yet I knew that Greg and Alex were going to be in my life forever. Now, after hundreds of gigs (literally), we are planning our second round of opening sets with The Handsome Family on the west coast in April, an EP of the beloved Eric Johnson’s songs, and a third album of collaborative original music. We are creating sounds I never could have imagined on my own. I can’t wait for the local shows we have coming up so we can share our music with whoever is there to listen.
