Over 10 years have passed since Long Beach, CA musicians Stephen Ramos and Nick Sturz teamed up to form their first band. Since then, they’ve cut their teeth on the road and in the studio, performing dozens of tours across the states, recording albums and paying their dues. Having learned valuable lessons by means of failure, success, and perseverance, the duo have formed what they feel to be the most accurate representation of who they are as artists.

And this representation is manifested in a band called Wilder.

Wilder’s music is upbeat, infectiously melodic, and resemblant of the Southern California aesthetic from which it was created. Their aim is simple, and is even written onto Ramos’ Fender Telecaster – the band is now here, and things are about to get wild.

But don’t be fooled by the vibrant imagery – the songs have underlying lyrical content that is full of honesty and angst, with a tongue-in-cheek attitude that leaves the listener wanting to know more of the story.

The band is set to release their debut EP “Bad Bad Luck” via Rude Records in 2021. Wilder. invites you to be a part of the story as it unfolds.
