If Led Zeppelin and Blondie had superpowers and made a lovechild in Gotham City, that kid would grow up to be Sarah Wild. In a world filled with corrupt power and malicious deceit, this black-hooded ass kicking siren would no doubt find herself fighting fire with fire in the streets and bringing justice for the forgotten to the powers that be. With her team, The Watch, she plots to use her own dark side to unearth the evil that lurks beneath the surface of the mundane, armed with superhuman vocals, doomsday-bringing bass distortion, and guitar riffs that shoot to kill.
So who is this hooded masked vigilante, you ask? Well who are any of us, really? She started as just another human cog in the man made machine, but after breaking free from the college-to-corporate path, traveling the world, and diving into the depths of one of the most difficult industries to find success in, she now considers herself one of the outliers. Born of a love for rock and roll, conspiracy theories and comic book vigilantes, Sarah Wild is not your average rocker chick, and she certainly doesn't claim to be a hero.
It is through exploring our own darkness that we become comfortable in the dark. Our senses become heightened. Our sight begins to make out outlines of obstacles in our path. Those who only live in the light never truly understand the complexities of human existence. Sarah Wild is an exercise in mastering her dark side, and using it to propel her forward. This is the tale the music tells: one of a warrior who has come back from the dark side, not unscathed, with renewed wisdom and a vendetta against those who keep us in the dark without our consent.
Wild released her debut EP "Villain" in October 2016; an EP that served as an experiment in the evolution of the project, including tracks that span multiple genres including blues, pop, rock, and even country. While the EP isn't the perfect representation of Sarah Wild and The Watch as the band they are currently, the band considers it a necessary step in the growth of the project.
Wild is currently writing new music with bandmates Everett Carlson (lead guitar), Sean Woodcock (guitar), Aron Schur (bass) and Ian Garner (drums) and plans to embark on her first West Coast tour in summer 2018. In the meantime, she can be found thrashing her white mane around onstage in her trademark black hood, or touring with her other project, Fox and Bones.
