About Wild Child
Wild Child is an American indie pop band from Austin, Texas. The band consists of Kelsey Wilson (lead vocals and violin), Alexander Beggins (lead vocals and baritone ukulele), Sadie Wolfe (cello), Matt Bradshaw (keyboard and trumpet), and Tom Myers (drums). They are managed by Pat Cassidy.
Wilson and Beggins met while touring as back-up musicians for a Danish indie act called The Migrant. They began writing songs together in the backseat of the tour van and found they worked very well as a songwriting team. Both had just been through the end of relationships, which provided both common ground and writing material. Beggins had brought a ukulele from his father’s instrument collection simply because it was small enough to comfortably pass around in a van (Beggins played accordion with The Migrant). By the end of the tour the two had written several songs and began recording their first album upon their return to Austin. To complete the sound they were seeking, they called in other local musicians and friends to help record, which eventually became the full Wild Child band.
The band has been hailed as one of the top acts in music-rich Austin since the release of debut album Pillow Talk. Their mix of folk and pop melodies gives them a unique sound.
