Bob Wilders

Songwriter/singer Bob Wilders started writing songs not long after learning to play the guitar at the age of 13.  His influences are countless, covering the gamut from blues, folk, country, rock and on and on.  His songs, which number at least a thousand, show the diversity of these influences and range from blues to country to folk to rock and more.  He is a true Americana artist.  His first two albums exemplify that.  His third album explores his rock roots.  Currently residing in Tucson, Arizona he has played numerous venues there and in Phoenix and also performed at the Tucson Folk Festival throughout the years, once appearing on the main stage.  He has also played in various venues from New Jersey to New Orleans to Austin. He was born in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu, where he first learned guitar and studied the martial art of aikido, acquiring a San-dan (third degree black belt).
