Wilder Sons was created on a humid back porch in South Florida in 2013 by indie scene veterans Brian Blount (Vox/guitar) and Jake Rubington (Vox/Guitar). Both experienced front men of previous touring bands, the two joined forces to construct a beachy alt-rock style that is stimulating the senses of the progressive alternative scene. Transcendent guitar riffs weave effortlessly between catchy melodies, upbeat bass lines, and complex drum progressions; all of which paint a captivating backdrop to Brian’s reminiscent lyricism.
Their 2014 self-titled EP created a strong local following helping the group land opening gigs with bands like The Story So Far, Copeland, Turnover, Further Seems Forever, and Mewithoutyou to name a few. In 2016, Wilder Sons, along with the help of their devoted fans, ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the release of their second EP, “Scatterbrain”. Since it’s release in November, Scatterbrain has been rapidly gaining the attention of Pandora listeners and Spotify playlists alike. It was also around this time that the group rounded out their line up with the addition of Dan Springs (Bass) and Nic Viens (Drums), both seasoned musicians who add a refreshing dynamic to the foursome. Wilder Sons continue to push the boundaries, creating a new sound that is pulsating through the prism of the Southwest Florida scene and beaming out to a national audience.
