Wild Child (the KUTX Artist of the Month) is one of the bigger local success stories of the past few years, going from small bar shows to a headlining set at Stubb’s on Saturday, November 28. That’s due in part to the dynamic between Kelsey Wilson and Alexander Beggins, both singers and songwriters in the band. The pair initially teamed up in 2010, and across three albums–including this year’s Fools–they’ve turned into quite a team. This week on My KUTX, we’re turning over the guest DJ mics to Kelsey and Alexander so they can spin their favorite songs. Listen below the playlist.
