About Wildish

Content

Wildish was born out of the heart of Alexa Wildish in 2012. Alexa spent her childhood swinging in her backyard and singing to the canyons behind her home in Southern California. After twelve years of professional singing lessons and a unique and enriching education at an arts high school, Alexa went away to Elon University in North Carolina where she received a BFA in Musical Theater with a focus in classical music. Alexa's next few years were spent entertaining on a cruise ship and then, finally, settling in Portland, Oregon where she is allowing her own musical expression to take root. Wildish is an ever-progressing indie folk project that strives to tell stories of our common lives with truth and authenticity, in all life's pain and glory. Alexa is most influenced by the warm tones and elegant storytelling of Laura Marling, Brandi Carlile, and Joni Mitchell. She has most recently and frequently collaborated with Sean Vinson (upright bass) and Ben Wasson (percussion). In December 2012 they released their first EP called Invitation and a few months later released their single, "The Unknown." They are currently working on their next album scheduled to be released in 2014.

About Leo

Content

Leo is a pianist and singer wanting to compound those two skills in a way she never had before. She began lessons with the piano at five and stuck with it ever since. She grew up playing an old family piano passed down through the generations and would follow her mother around as she led church choir, directed musicals, and conducted the high orchestra. Mother was her first music teacher but lessons in oboe, french horn, and voice soon followed as well as time in bands, orchestras, and choirs of all kinds. After spending 2 decades of singing words and playing music composed by other people she decided to try writing her own. This is after discovering great singer songwriters like Nike Lowe, Stephan Merritt, Bill Withers, Neko Case; and wanting to create something as powerful as a song that means something to a someone you've never met.
