THE SOUND WALL PRESENTS
Webb Wilder – (Roots Rock, Nashville, TN)
Inducted into the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame
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. 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 a member of the Mississippi Music Hall of Fame, Webb’s 1986 debut album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine in 2018. His engaging personality led him to become one of America’s first Satellite DJs on XM Radio. He’s now 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.
“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
