MEET PAT WILDER
Urban soul, gospel, Rhythm & Blues is Patricia Wilder's self-described music style - "real" music about "real" people, living real. Wilder's musical foundation is rooted in jazz, rock, R&B, blues and gospel. She studied guitar at the San Francisco School or music and on to San Francisco City College.
As an artist Patricia studied acting and entered many of the talent and beauty contest in the S.F. bay area. Because music and entertaining was prevalent in her household, she was able to recognize and develop her strong passion for music. Her earliest musical influences Taj Mahal. As a friend of the family, Taj provided the ultimate inspiration in her childhood - it was from him that she received her first guitar.
As her confidence grew in her guitar playing ability, she ventured into singing.
Wilder says her guitar playing and singing were both outlets for self-expression.
She truly enjoys performing as an expression of universal communication, and
desires her audience to feel, hear and see all she is communicating through her music. Nominated for Traditional Blues Award, Honorable Mention Billboard Songwriting Contest Award 2009 .
International touring band/ Europe Italy. Described as "one of the most exciting R & blues-guitarist/vocalists to come out of the bay area in a long time" by Lee Hildebrand of the San Francisco Bay Guardian, Wilder has shared her talent with many great musicians, such as Linda Tillary, John Lee Hooker, Jr., Angela Bofill and many others. When performing, it is Wilder's ambition to feel the electricity and energy exchanged between herself and the audience. When you hear it you too will be energized and completely captivated by the unique funk rhythms of her CD's "Sweet Love" and "Lay Down Daddy".
