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, Andrew Peterson, Needtobreathe, The Civil Wars, Joseph, Sara Bareilles, Colony House, Ben Rector, Sandra McCracken, Jon Foreman

"It really sounds like [they] enjoy arranging vocals. I can hear the joy of the arrangements through the recordings... I noticed in “House On Fire” especially that [they] never settle for obvious harmonies with the vocal arrangements! And I’m a big fan of that. The way that Jenna comes in on the second verse of that song in particular, the lift of energy it creates as Chris switches to harmony underneath, that tension is so thoughtful. And I can tell that’s born out of a great meticulous whittling."
DREW MILLER / THE RABBIT ROOM
"...Passionate lyrics and pristine harmonies."
