- Webb Wilder

There are roots rockers, and then there's Webb Wilder. His legendary live shows have inspired a burgeoning cult following. For over 20 years, Wilder has mined rock 'n' roll's most hallowed ground, but unlike so many others, he has approached it all with a rare irreverence and wit. His self-effacing persona gives Wilder's music a sense of fun and imagination often lacking among his peers. And while many other proponents of American roots music simply stopped at Elvis and Chuck Berry, Wilder's music incorporates influences as diverse as British Invasion, surf, country and roadhouse blues. As Billboard magazine noted, "The band is Georgia Satellites, part Dave Edmunds, part Elvis Costello and altogether wonderful." More Like Me finds Webb in great form, and combines some of his new songs like the honky-tonking title cut with obscure cover gems -- including a great version of Roky Erikson's brooding "Don't Slander Me."

“First-rate roots-rock, Rockpile style, from Nashville’s last of the full grown men.”
 - USA Today

“Wilder is the best kind of guitar geek, the kind who can actually play – not to mention sing, write, and put on one hell of a show…Great stuff for rock fans, with extra goodies for gearheads..”  - Vintage Guitar Magazine

Wilder’s song selection is as impeccable and reliable as his guitar wrangling skills…and one listen to the soulful gumbo of a title track confirms his self-deprecating wit is intact and flourishing. The whole album swings….a glorious record, quite possibly his best, and that’s saying something.” 
- Blurt

“Brewing a hot gumbo of country-flavored roots rock, Wilder’s as much an entertainer as a musician, but that gives neither short shrift.”
– Nashville Scene

“Nonetheless, the “full-grown man” has soldiered on, turning out one strong album after another and this one is among the best.” – Blue Suede News
