"KRZA Radio 88.7 FM, Alamosa, CO"

It is in my opinion that Jason Wilder is THE best unsigned singer-songwriter in America today. I have never been exposed to this kind of depth from an unknown and unsigned artist. Having seen him perform live and having listened to his recorded material, he stands out as the real deal. If this guy doesn't become a household name through his music then shame on the music industry! - John Moore, DJ, KRZA 88.7 FM Alamosa\Taos


"Rhonda Larson, Grammy Winner"

"Me and my husband saw this incredible singer-songwriter by the name of Jason Wilder perform last night at the San Luis Valley Brewing Company, and he had the most beautiful, sunny voice I have ever heard.

"I've just heard a great new track by Jason Wilder called 'Whispers of Love'. Keep an ear out for future recordings by this talented young man." -Norbert Putnam, multi-platinum producer for Jimmy Buffett, Dan Fogelberg and Joan Baez, and bass player for Elvis Presley. (Norbert's legendary work includes producing all of Jimmy Buffett's albums from 1977-1981, including the song "Margaritaville", Dan Fogelberg's albums "Home Free", "Nether Lands" and "Phoenix" as well as Joan Baez's biggest hit "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down"). (by permission of Norbert Putnam, www.norbertputnam.com)

"Wilder is an enormously talented singer-songwriter and could very well fill the shoes of the late Jim Croce who has been sorely missed since his untimely demise in the 70's. He brings a warmth and sincerity to his music that has been unheard of in the music industry for more than 30 years." Mike V, Program Director, Hidden Sanctuary Radio, Live 365 Network

"Jason Wilder was a wonderful addition to the 2007 Crestone Music Festival. His witty songwriting and stellar vocals were a big hit with the crowd. The crowd's exhuberant call for an encore was well deserved. We look forward to having him back next year." Tom Dessain, Executive Director, Crestone Music Festival, Crestone, Colorado (www.crestfest.org)

“Jason Wilder opened up for Ryan Shupe & the Rubber Band at the Hotel Colorado and was entertaining, engaging, and created a wonderful atmosphere for the rest of the show!” Dave Reynolds, Show Producer, Hotel Colorado

"Presence...not something one finds too often in music - known or unknown......This boy could expand out into other realms if he wanted to, and get noticed- if he wanted to. Jason must have talked to the same old Wolf Ghost that inspired John Denver in the way back... Some things are so good they're spooky." The Consenus Music Review website (formerly Gods of Music.com) after reviewing "Crestone"

"Jason Wilder’s stage presence and performances are “Class A”, and his songs are sung from the heart. "Jason Wilder" is destined for stardom."......Vaughan Mason, Platinum Artist, Producer, and Songwriter who's songs and music have been recorded by 50 Cent, The Pet Shop Boys, and Lil' Kim and is also known as the "Father of the Bounce Sound".

BIOGRAPHY

Singer-songwriter Jason Wilder's original style evolved from his unique upbringing- living on the road with a father whose real life persona was like that of a character drawn straight out of an old Hollywood road flick. As a child, Wilder traveled frequently with his father, a fisherman and painter, up and down the East Coast of the American South in search of greener pastures and seasonal employment. The people and places he's experienced along the way have made their way into his unique style.

Wilder’s vocal power and style are frequently compared to the likes of Elton John, Rob Thomas and Harry Chapin and his original music was recently acclaimed by legendary record producer Norbert Putnam, famous for producing Jimmy Buffett's song "Margaritaville" and whose credits include major works that established the popularity of performers such as Jimmy Buffett, Joan Baez and Dan Fogelberg. After hearing Wilder’s demo CD after a chance encounter in 2008, Norbert proclaimed afterwards "I've just heard a great new track by Jason Wilder called 'Whispers of Love'. Keep an ear out for future recordings by this talented young man.”

Wilder's first fully produced song, "Whispers of Love", released as a single in 2003, has garnered an impressive list of credentials, including a number 1 hit on the Internet's third largest adult contemporary radio station, a number 1 spot on the UK's Mp3Songs Top 100 Unsigned Artist Chart , MP3.com Adult Alternative Top 40 (edging out the still as ye
