"Wild" is inspired by an encounter with a woman who had recently escaped an abusive relationship and stands as a statement of solidarity and encouragement. Bauer uses powerful imagery to describe the strength displayed by this woman with "fire in her veins" and "chaos with a confidence." A strength that a former lover had attempted to stifle and control. He explains, "It was a message I felt she needed to hear and one that I thought many other women could relate to."Holiday and Louis Armstrong, to rock groups like Queen and Led Zeppelin, to pop and R&B stars like New Edition and Boyz II Men --further helped forge his musical style. These days, Bauer is something of a musical Clark Kent, successfully balancing his day job as a prosecutor on one hand and his passion for music and performing on the other. "Wild" follows the release of Bauer's live-shot video "Window Watching" and the release of the single "Sky So Blue". His other music, including singles "One Piece At a Time" and "Sugar" and his previous album, "Financial Aid, Vol. 2" are available for streaming on all digital platforms.
