What are writers and critics saying about Webb? Here's a sample!

"If Webb Wilder and his band are passing within 300 miles of your town, don't miss them!" - Vintage Guitar Magazine
"(Webb) flat out rocks. They serve up potent Southern comfort." - Rolling Stone Magazine
"There are no explosions, no video enhancements to a Webb Wilder show. Just lots and lots of authentic, gut level rock music. He's the last of the full grown men, and you don't question his genius." - Birmingham News
"These days the term 'roots rocker' is almost meaningless, but Wilder's blend of a rocker's heart with a hillbilly's soul is probably the best aural definition of it yet." - Time Out Chicago
"Wilder is one of America's most interesting characters, with a credo to call his own, raw talent, charismatic personality and rabid cult following." - Country Standard Time
"The band is 'Georgia Satellites, part Dave Edmunds, part Elvis Costello and altogether wonderful.'" - Billboard Magazine
"Nashville's best country-on-peyote band." - Entertainment Weekly
"He continues to spritz much needed rockabilly-juiced mayhem down the pants of contempo-country establishment." - Paste Magazine
"If bands were cigarette brands, Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks would be Lucky Strikes. Unhyped, unfiltered, and probably dangerous in large doses." - Macon Telegraph
"With (the About Time) album, Webb Wilder seems to have reclaimed his title and reasserted his status as roots rock's resident weirdo." - Harp Magazine
"Wilder is a master at scrambling the sounds, songs and threads of British Pop, rockabilly, country, blues and the freedom and emotion of soul music." - 20th Century Guitar Magazine
"Webb's a wild man, but there is a cool confidence behind his onstage swagger that commands attention. This is roots rock at its best, loaded with hooks, twang and power chords." - James Kelly, Creative Loafing, Atlanta
"With his obvious love of British rock and Southern roadhouse, Wilder could be a kind of Tom Petty for the trailer set." - San Francisco Chronicle
"Wilder's place in Nashville rock history is well-secured. He extended Music City's reputation as a place where innovation could occur well outside the confines of Music Row." - The Tennessean
"Influenced by punk, rock, surf, blues and hard-core drownin'-in-my-tears, cryin'-in-my-beer country classics, not to mention a hunka-hunka-burnin' Elvis, (Webb Wilder) created a musical fusion that lit a creative fuse in bands from L.A. to NYC. Throughout his nearly 20-year career, he's proved it with whiz-bang albums and live shows that vibrate with sizzling surf, crackling country, gutsy garage and classic Chuck Berry-styled guitar-rocking. It's all good." - Hal Horowitz, Creative Loafing
"Webb Wilder might be lacking in a few things - such as massive record sales and mainstream notoriety - but confidence is not one of them. First of all he has a credo. Wimps don't have credos. Wilder also nicknamed himself 'The Last of the Full Grown Men' partly because he's a fairly large dude, partly cause other guys are sissies." - Broward-Palm Beach New Times
"Americana Idol - Webb Wilder, Nashville's wildest, weirdest export, is actually kind of normal. Kind of. He has a deep Mississippi accent that cuts thru psychedelic power chords, singing with the kind of charisma that makes listeners want to buy whatever he's selling. One of a kind? Hell, this guy is a rock music Sasquatch. Only he's real." - Nashville Scene
