Bio

A raw and authentic one-woman show, twenty-two year old musician, Mardi Wilson, is a born and bread Brisbane girl, performing her unique alternative style originals and covers regularly, in and around the city.

Now splitting her time between Brisbane and the shores of New South Wales' Northern coastline, Mardi is constantly inspired by the beauty of her surroundings. Her original songs are inspired by events or individuals that have had a profound impact on her personally, as a passionate creator of music. From an early age, Mardi wrote lyrics to escape into another world, but struggled to sing with confidence. In an effort to overcome this, she switched her focus from playing the drums to learning to play the guitar. This move took Mardi's love of song writing to another level and allowed her to delve into the world of solo performance. Now, having combined these skills, Mardi incorporates guitar, stomp box, tambourine, and vocals into her performances.

Focussing more on music than her studies in the later years of high school and university, Mardi's development as an artist occupied far more mental and creative space than anything else. Now focusing full time on music, Mardi is continually inspired by her surroundings and the people in her life, expanding into unknown territory and developing further as a musician.
