Throwback Thursday: Matthew Wilder


No Roxy Music, Duran Duran or Depeche Mode, Britain’s getting too much credit when talking about New Wave. Today we’re going local with Matthew Wilder.

      1. Matthew Wilder: Break My Stride



The New York based musician, composer and record producer started in NYC as one-half of the Greenwich Village folk group Matthew & Peter in the 70’s. His move to California in 1978 was probably a step for a more commercial career. There he sang for television commercials, and as a backing vocalist for Rickie Lee Jones and Bette Midler. On 1983, Wilder released his debut album “I Don’t Speak the Language” with the forever hit “Don’t Break My Stride“.  


Embark on Wilder’s dream sailing away to China, where he meets a girl who’s getting her laundry done and keeps insisting that nothing is going to break her stride, nothing!  


Happy Thursday to you all hard workers who believe in what you are doing, let’s follow Wilder’s words of wisdom and keep on moving!
