Wild Child

2013 Austin Music Award Winners In Both The “Indie” and “Folk” Categories - Wild Child

Our Sense of Place visit to Austin continues as we move into the KUTX studio for a performance from the Austin, Texas band Wild Child. The band put out their debut in 2011 and their second album The Runaround in October of last year. It was produced by Ben Kweller. The band is led by the very personable singers and songwriters Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins. When they met they kind of had to figure out how to write songs together, something that now seems completely natural. Wild Child were named best indie band and best folk band at the 2013 Austin Music Awards. Take a moment to download their performance of “This Place” from our session.
