Christian DeWild Singer/songwriter Christian DeWild
playing solo in the Sacramento area since 2004 when he moved here
from the Bay Area. It's when he arrived in Sacramento that he
unplugged his amp and began working on his love of blues and folk,
both of which reflect his influences and life events. A blend
of acoustic rock, blues, and other bits of American roots music,
Christian has released three solo albums and joins us today to play
a song and to talk to us about his colorful music.
