Matthew Wilder

The defiant chorus of Matthew Wilder's 1983 hit "Break My Stride" -- "Ain't nothin' gonna break my stride/Nobody gonna slow me down" -- could also define his career. Wilder is one of the few artists who was able to escape from the stigma of having only one smash single and yet find more success in the music industry. In the early '70s, Wilder was part of the Greenwich Village folk duo Matthew & Peter. Wilder moved to Los Angeles in 1978 and sang on TV commercials; he also became a backup vocalist for Rickie Lee Jones and Bette Midler. In 1983, Wilder released his first album, I Don't Speak the Language. "Break My Stride" reached the Top Ten in the U.S. However, Wilder's second LP, 1984's Bouncin' Off the Walls, flopped. Nevertheless, Wilder continued to write and produce for others. In 1995, Wilder produced No Doubt's multi-platinum debut Tragic Kingdom. Wilder's work on the Mulan soundtrack in 1998 that earned him an Oscar nomination. ~ Michael Sutton, Rovi

my love for 80's british funk makes me think ma folks went to too much parties when i was a fetus ..love ur song dude!!!
Love that this came up on my 80's radio station. Very peppy, upbeat song.
When my son was 6 or 7 he loved Break my Stride (he's 13 now). For some reason it was always on the radio in the morning as I was driving him to school and we would sing it together (the song does get you movin!) It was fun introducing him to music I listened to when I was a teen!
Break My Stride got me through some pretty horrendous times in my life,and I still sing it when I need a boost. Thanks, Matthew!
