Wilder Adkins was born in Marietta, Georgia where he grew up hearing the old folk songs his dad would play. As a young man, he lived for a short while in a small village in the middle of India, where he learned to sing in the unabashed style of simple people. He now makes his home among the kind people of Birmingham, Alabama. Today he still sings about simple things, like faith and flowers; his courtly-but-witty lyrics evoke a Deep South Shelley or Yeats, riding a joyful guitar dexterity.
