at City Winery Nashville
Inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame
Webb’s first album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine
Long before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Music City there was a riddle spewing prophet of roots rock and roll. A bluesy blast of baritone bombast. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll – with a strong side of Outlaw Country. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty.
A native of Hattiesburg, he’s been calling Nashville home for more than 30 years. He crafted his signature brand of "Mid-Atlantic" (British and American) rock and roll, mixed with Country, Blues and Soul that has been exported across the world. Webb is now the host of the Americana Countdown show on WMOT radio as well as continuing his over three decade career as an Idol of Idle Youth and an Electrifying Artist.
“Webb flat out rocks! They serve up potent Southern comfort.” Rolling Stone Magazine
"With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse, Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle
“These days the term ‘roots rocker’ is almost meaningless, but Wilder’s blend of a rocker’s heart with a hillbilly’s soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet.” Time Out Chicago
“Discover the mystery, the madness, and the magic of the man called Wilder. A giant standing proudly above lesser talents.” - That Devil Music
