    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 EP, Monument Part 1, was produced by Andrew Osenga in Nashville, TN and features songs from their upcoming full-length album.

    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.  
     
    “Writing ‘Monument’ coincided with us making the leap to leave a decade of other careers behind and follow God's call to focus on music,” says Chris. “We marveled at how easy it is to forget the reasons why we do what we do when life gets hard, and we were reminded of how the Israelites built monuments to have a visual, physical reminder of what God had done for them. These reminders help us look back to what's true, as well as guide our path forward.”
     
    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.
     
    “I was afraid of getting married and living a really lonely life inside that marriage,” Jenna shares. “In the age of social media, we have tons of interaction with people, but there’s no intimacy. Everyone’s more connected than ever, but they’re lonelier than ever.”
     
    A showcase of the couple’s storytelling style, “Ballad of Wallace and Jessie” was inspired by a musician aboard the Titanic who played his violin on the ship’s deck as passengers boarded lifeboats. “He realized he could use his talent in that moment, at great cost to himself, to get people through this tragedy," Chris shares of the man’s sacrifice.
     
    “The heart of that story is that someone would lay down their life for another,” Jenna adds. “For us, that’s the heart of Christ.”

    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 various Spotify playlists, including Indie Spirit, Faith Finds and New Music Friday.
