Behind the Music of 13 Wyde
Developed out of weekly jam sessions, 13 Wyde soon found themselves creating their own music, when original lyrics were introduced ... suddenly they had their first song. Something else happened from this experience, something far more valuable than the song itself, creative chemistry was awakened and their newfound desire to make original songs was the seed from which the band was born.
Effortlessly 13 Wyde found themselves with a growing library of material and made the decision to enter the studio and record a full length cd. Well into the production, the band suffered a major setback when 2 key members left the band. After an extensive search the band returned to the studio, with their new singer, determined to complete their cd.
With the release of "Social Psycho Breakdown" the band is back in the studio tracking new material for their follow-up cd and rehearsing for live shows.
