Black Music Month Spotlight: Patricia Wilder

Name:

Patricia Wilder

Why is celebrating Black music important to you?

I am a black woman  who expresses herself thru music. It’s a common way of communicating.

What do you think of the current state of the music industry?

The music industry is large and wide, however breaking in to sound tech engineers, to education, creation of music, the industry has moved  in a different direction and fast. It to me is more informative yet shows not much in the black realm of blues and it has moved in a different direction. Rap music has an old Motown groove pasted to the tracks. The creative part has lessened.

What is your favorite song currently?

An old gospel : I Know It Was The Blood

What do you love almost as much as music?

 Ice cream!

Who influences you most?

My mother, many musicians: Taj Mahal, Mahalia Jackson, Hezikiah Walker, Etta James, Tina Turner…

A world without music is…?

A world without communication.
