Wilder is a Chicago based alt-pop songwriting duo, consisting of Matthew Murray and Kristen Donnelly. After writing and playing music since his late teens, Matt connected with Kristen, a music education major and high school choir director. Both from the same hometown, Matt and Kristen grew up together and began writing two years ago. The mix of her formal, and his informal music experience has lead to a unique songwriting style and partnership. Since forming Wilder, they have worked with producer Marc McClusky (Weezer, Motion City) on their upcoming EP ‘Keep You Here’ due this October.
