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, and in the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, Wilder’s 1986 debut album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine. Webb was honored to participate in Shemekia Copeland’s recent Grammy nominated LP Uncivil War co-writing and performing on a track. He’s been in a number of movies, but is best known for his cult classic short films: Webb Wilder Private Eye, Horror Hayride and Scattergun. Webb’s engaging personality led him to become one of America’s first Satellite DJs on XM Radio. He’s now a DJ and the host of the Americana Countdown show on WMOT radio/Nashville as well as continuing his three decade career as an Electrifying Artist on stages worldwide. His newest release is Night Without Love on Landslide Records.
