Zarid Wilder better known by his stage name theMIND is an American recording artist and songwriter.

Refusing to be placed in a box and being labeled as "R&B” – he views himself as a ‘lyrical exhibitionist’ rather than a singer - theMIND doesn’t mind being sprinkled amongst the ‘Alternative R&B’ artists that have been breaking through over the past few years, feeling more sonically related to British artists like Sampha, James Blake and Kwabs than his US peers dominating the pop charts. When asked how he’d describe his sound, he’s quick to reply ‘Rabbit Hole Music’, explaining that it’s something that his listeners can get lost in. At times his music goes off on tangents, one song might be making a very direct point, whereas another could conceptually drag him back-and-forth through sometimes contradictory thoughts and feelings. “I like it that way,” he admits. “I think that’s the way that our minds work: they talk a mile a minute, we’re constantly thinking about different things while we’re trying to focus on one thing. So I like that my music does that too, and you get that out of these situations and songs.”
