Wild Harbors is comprised of husband and wife singer-songwriters Chris and Jenna Badeker. Formed in 2017, the alternative pop outfit creates gutsy, lyric-driven songs laced with intricate vocal harmonies. Confronted with the knowledge that each person is given one short life to live, they put their previous careers aside to step into the adventure of music and invite other people to live their own adventures.
Their debut album, Monument, was produced by Andrew Osenga in Nashville, TN and released March 15, 2019.
For fans of: Johnnyswim, Ellie Holcomb, Andrew Peterson, Needtobreathe, The Civil Wars, Joseph, Sara Bareilles, Colony House, Ben Rector, Sandra McCracken, Jon Foreman
