Album Notes
This is a mini-album put together to raise money for some good causes. Wilder, that's me, wanted to write some original Christmas songs rather than relying on old standards. He's quite pleased with the results and thinks you will be, too!

Editor's Pick - Really wonderful stuff
With a laid back, modern folkie vibe that recalls both Iron & Wine and The Swell Season, Birmingham songwriter Wilder Adkins has made a cozy Christmas album that is going to get a lot of repeat listens in my house this year. Most songs feature just a gentle acoustic guitar or two, with which Wilder has written a handful of original songs that reverently tell the story of Jesus birth. This is no shopping frenzy soundtrack nor is there a hint of the schmaltzy radio tunes which tend to clog the airways, this is Adkins and a few different female vocalists. Standout tracks include the slide-guitar blues of "Balthasar's Blues" and "On His Shoulders", which features delicious harmonies courtesy of Mandi Mapes.
