Bio

A raw and authentic one person show, Mardi Wilson (24) is a Brisbane based musician, making waves in the industry with her unique surf folk style and emotive lyrics. After touring the East Coast of Australia in 2018, Mardi returned to her home state and is now splitting her time between Brisbane and the shores of New South Wales' Northern coastline.

From an early age Mardi enjoyed writing lyrics and poetry but was officially introduced to the world of music when she started learning the drums at the age of 12. In her later years of high school, Mardi switched her focus from drumming to learning guitar; allowing her to further explore her love of song writing. Now, having combined these skills, Mardi incorporates guitar, vocals and foot percussion into her performances.

An energetic and captivating solo performer, Mardi is constantly inspired by the people in her life and her natural surroundings to create music which continues to resonate with audiences as she travels and plays.

There's a sentimentality to this song that I wasn't initially expecting to get hit with but it's quite affecting. Beautiful stuff.

Got that same raw-nerved and emotional approach as the world beating Amy Shark with perhaps a more easy-going edge. Nice.
