“I love, love, love the new album! Well done.” -Scott Goldman, Grammy Museum
“Fortunately, a willingness to diverge and experiment can often yield great art, even when it comes at the expense of commercial credence. Indeed, that is the guy that Wilder tends to be.”
“…Night Without Love is just as wondrously whimsical and detailed as its packaging.” –Elmore
“He doesn’t wear tights or have a cape fluttering behind as he leaps tall buildings with a single bound. He’s not faster than a speeding bullet. But Webb Wilder is a musical superman…” – No Depression
“Among his many other accomplishments over a four-decade career, Wilder helped invent modern rock in Nashville, a town full of singers, songwriters and pickers who walk the thin tightrope that connects the old with the new. Wilder remains nimble, which makes him a local legend and a national treasure.” – Nashville Scene
Mississippi Musician Hall of Fame icon Webb Wilder pleases and shocks, soothes and rocks, and meets every un-expectation. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll – with a strong side of Outlaw Country (Webb prefers the term "PROGRESSIVE Country"). He is a force on tour, and a tour de force. He is the Last of the Full Grown Men, as well as Roots Rock Royalty.
Night Without Love is Wilder's eleventh album, and it was recorded at George Bradfute's Tone Chapparal studio near Nashville. Alongside Webb are a crew of like-minded friends, including genius guitarist Richard Bennett (Emmylou Harris, Mark Knopfler), spectacular harmony vocalist Rick Schell, and Bradfute, whose multi-instrumental wizardry adds layers to the aural proceedings.
Legendary artist Flournoy Holmes created the album's cover art. Fans may know of Holmes' other well-known work, such as the cover of The Allman Brothers Band's Eat a Peach, or the engaging designs wrapping Webb's own Doo Dad outing. Webb has been an early adopter of using all manner of media to make an impression. He was one of America's first satellite DJs, as a leading personality on XM Radio's XM-12 "X-Country" (Cross Country) channel. He starred in cult movie classics featuring the character of "Webb Wilder, Private Eye," co-created by his old pal R.S. Field. All those years ago, Field (a man of vision to be sure) was key in helping a young John Webb McMurry transform into "Electrifying Artist, Webb Wilder."
Listen to the Webb Wilder Credo
"Webb flat out rocks! They serve up potent Southern Comfort"-Rolling Stone
Webb's classic It Came From Nashville picked as a '50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time
"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 "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
