Windish tells Variety:
“Wilder is a means to get music released, promoted and discovered by as many people as possible. Quite simply, we’re willing to promote and release music before anybody else is.
I’ve known Nathan and the Future Classic crew for a long time. They have outstanding curation, creativity and work ethic. I cannot emphasize their long term approach to artist development enough, and for that reason, I could not think of a better label partner."
