Haunted rock poet Jim Morrison meets stout-hearted naturalist Ansel Adams. Bold pioneer Meriwether Lewis meets 1961-Greenwich-Village-era Bob Dylan. American satirist Mark Twain meets theatrical rock stylist David Byrne. Gonzo Captain Beefheart and 60s psychedelia meet spoken word visionary Ken Nordine and intuitive surrealist Frederico Fellini.
Welcome to the underdog-centric Wilder world, where non-attachment is a virtue. Where wit, a light, pointed humor, and mystical worldview are springboards for soul release. KC Wilder's compositions give rich drama to ordinary experience, deepening our sense of what it means to be alive today.

Wilder "breaks on through to the other side", then comes back to tell about it. Where in-your-face attitude of Janis Joplin meets expansive earth-awareness of Johnny Appleseed. Revelatory vision of Mark Rothko meets incisive ear of Ian MacKaye. Instrumental maestro Ennio Morricone jams with mystical Emily Dickinson. Brassiness of Muhammad Ali channeled by wispy Edith Piaf.
This happens in an eyeblink. In a single note of music. The music we hear on WILDER BLUE YONDER.
Like musicologists John and Alan Lomax, who spent lifetimes wandering distant places, poet and composer KC Wilder wanders obscure corners of the American west. There he's spent half a lifetime exploring and collecting exotic music. WILDER BLUE YONDER is the first CD Wilder's brought back from rugged regions on and off the grid. Wilder's visions resonate with style.
Bluesy Langston Hughes meets wildly inventive Dustin Hoffman. Otherworldly expressionist Jackson Pollock meets intrepid Daniel Boone. Ethereal Robinson Jeffers meets gamey Lance Armstrong and blows like cosmic Rassan Roland Kirk.
The WILDER BLUE YONDER 13-song CD is also now available direct via our distributors, Stella Deals.com, at the bargain price of $12.97 (+ postage).
