ABOUT K.T. WILD
27-year old acoustic singer/songwriter K.T Wild hails from Lincolnshire in northeast England via Leeds & Bristol. When told to learn pieces of music at school, instead 12-year old K.T. wanted to write his own music but when no one would sing his songs, he discovered his voice and started singing himself.
Finding your voice and the strength to say how you feel is at the heart of every K.T. Wild song and – like the music he writes – will strike a chord.
K.T. wrote four songs for the A Christmas Gift From Bob over a long weekend in October 2019. Three songs inspired by the script: ’Something To Give’; ’Coming Back To Me (Coming Home)’; ’On The 8th Day (I’ll Be A Better Man)’ feature in the film performed by lead actor Luke Treadaway as James Bowen, while a fourth ’Invisible Christmas’ – sung by K.T. himself – is the film’s end credit song.
All four songs and their acoustic versions – performed by K.T. Wild – are produced by Matt Lawrence – Grammy Award recipient for his engineering work on Mumford & Son’s 2013 Album of the Year “Babel.”
Many K.T. Wild songs tell stories of emerging out of a dark place into sunshine and hope. Relatable for everyone around the globe in a year like this. ‘A Christmas Gift From Bob’ and its soundtrack album is K.T.’s debut music release.
