MARGARET WILDER BAND
Up and coming entertainer Margaret Wilder is noted for her delivery of captivating vocals and rollicking boogie-woogie songs.
Classically trained, Wilder is a singer, songwriter and pianist who was heavily influenced by jazz at an early age. Her passion for rhythm and blues followed, leading the young performer to an onstage career. Currently the front person of the Margaret Wilder Band, the formidable musician cleverly fuses blues, rock and funk, creating an unforgettable collection of tunes that blends the sounds of Etta James with Annie Lennox. Wilder is joined by veteran players Kim Carson on drums, David Payne on bass and Adrian Clarke on guitar.
Wilder's debut CD release DON'T WANNA WAIT is now available on-line. It was labeled a top seller at the 2006 Mount Baker Rhythm and Blues Festival and the Rendezvous Blues Festival. The Margaret Wilder Band was recently nominated for BEST NEW BAND and BEST KEYBOARD from the Washington Blues Society.
