Multi-instrumentalist J.C. Fetlock began developing his craft at the age of 9, playing flute and singing at Milton Hershey School. Since then he has learned guitar, mandolin, sax, pan flute and many other instruments.
J.C. infuses his music with storytelling, a keen sense of humor and his love of nature. He is known throughout Central Pennsylvania as a lively performer who collaborates with many great musicians and bands, covering a variety of styles such as swing jazz with the Frankedelics, reggae with First Trumpet and Jah Volcano, classic rock with Hippie Gun Club and neo-classical with Red Rose Ensemble among others.
His critically acclaimed 2016 CD, Love Bomb, has been getting steady play on internet radio and three of his songs have reached #1 internationally and nationally on NumberOne Radio.
Out of many talented local bands and entertainers, J.C. Fetlock was selected to launch the summer series of local bands on Saturday nights at the famous Long's Park Amphitheater in Lancaster, PA. J.C. is currently writing more songs and performing as a solo artist and with the band "Wild Self."

John Dunkle began playing harmonica in 1981 with a passion. Living in Chapel Hill NC he was influenced by local bands such as Ben Fold Five, Flat Duo Jets, The Red Clay Ramblers, and many others. He played with local musicians for about 10 years while honing his skills. Joined a swing/rock band in 2000 and gigged for 4 years. In 2004, began to collaborate with a new artist, and began getting serious with acoustic guitar. Although raising a family was priority #1, his music passion remained. In 2014, he moved to Lancaster PA and met Rick Kahn. They collaborated on song writing for about one year, before joining WILD SELF.

Patrick White, bass player for Wild Self, started studying guitar and bass at age 8 and had his first professional gig at age 10. Fretless bass is currently his primary instrument, but he has significant experience with mandolin, guitar, and Eastern Music, including sitar and Japanese Court Music. For thirty years, beginning in 1985, he studied with Robert Fripp of King Crimson. He began teaching master classes in braille music and electric bass in the late nineties, and continues to work with international students throughout the US and abroad. Writing, performing, and recording music is his life’s work; countless gigs with many players, bands, and producers in styles including; Avant garde, classical, folk, jazz, reggae and rock. Patrick knows his way around a studio as well, logging in hundreds of hours as a session musician, audio engineer, and producer.
Wild Self was formed in early 2017 with the intention of a one-performance collaboration. That afternoon’s connections have already lead to a significant body of original material, often performed among a few obscure and novel covers.

Rick Kahn learned to read music and play piano at age 6, and switched to guitar lessons at age 8. He played guitar in various rock bands in the Chicago suburbs. While a student at University of Michigan, he studied classical guitar, music composition, and music theory, along with a major in engineering. After graduation, he moved to Washington DC to work for the Navy in ship design. He set up a recording studio with his college bass player where they formed a band, played out and recorded. He retired early from the Navy in 2014, and relocated to Lancaster PA, where he founded and ran sound for his venue Tobacco Avenue which he and his wife operated for a year. He is currently writing, practicing, recording and performing with the band WILD SELF.
