Toronto-based Vivienne Wilder is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and composer. Her music has been described as lit-punk, folk-noir and anti-genre; Wilder is her own constellation of sound, style, and influence. Her tone is wry and adorned with an endearing world weary disinterest; like your punk rock half-sister, she's enviably devoid of fist clenching sentimentality. Hers are morally ambiguous love songs for the intrepid and curious.

Thematically, Wilder is obsessed with the paradoxical beauty and sadness in unrequited love, the secret worlds of self-destruction, and of millennial disappointed hope. Her nuanced sound and crafted words embrace the traditional past and the anxious, non-linear present, all the while eschewing the easy lure of tribal political rant. Her performances are fearfully Sybillic in force and yield high comparison to PJ Harvey, Siouxie Sioux, The Cure, Thom Yorke and Fiona Apple.

Her third and latest release, postromantic (Fallen Tree Records, June 2020), was produced by her guitarist Neil Whitford, and co-produced and engineered by Andrew Mullin.
