Maryland-based husband/wife duo Wild Harbors is set to bow their full-length debut, “Monument,” on March 15. Produced by Andrew Osenga (Laura Story, Caedmon’s Call), the alt-pop singer/songwriter collection features 10 story-driven tracks wrapped in memorable melodies and warm harmonies. 

“Monument” is highlighted by the title-cut, a deeply personal anthem for Wild Harbors’ Chris and Jenna Badeker, reminding them of God’s guiding hand in every step of their journey. The project also features two poignant selections addressing marriage: the passionate “House On Fire” grapples with Chris’ perspective on relational tensions, while “Alone Together” explores Jenna’s fear of isolation.

Additionally, a showcase of the couple’s storytelling style, “Ballad of Wallace and Jessie,” was inspired by a musician on the Titanic who played his violin as passengers boarded lifeboats. A story of great sacrifice, Wallace Hartley used his talent in a most profound way to comfort those around him.

Chris and Jenna Badeker began making music together at McDaniel College in Westminster, Maryland, and have since released two Eps (“Monument Part One” and “Monument Part Two”) as Wild Harbors. Their songs “Abigail” and “House On Fire” were among UTR Media’s top tracks of 2018, and the duo’s music has been featured on such Spotify playlists as Indie Spirit, Faith Finds and New Music Friday.
