Bio

A raw and authentic one-woman show,Mardi Wilson (23), is a born and bred Brisbane girl, making waves in the industry with her unique indie folk style and soulful lyrics. After a successful tour of the East Coast of Australia, Mardi returned to her home state of Queensland and is now splitting her time between Brisbane and the shores of New South Wales' Northern coastline.

Mardi's introduction to music officially began in 2007 when she started playing the drums, although she had always enjoyed writing lyrics and poetry from an early age. In her later years of high school, Mardi switched her focus away from drumming and began taking guitar lessons. This allowed Mardi to delve into the world of solo performance and took her love for song writing to another level. Now, having combined these skills, Mardi incorporates guitar, vocals and foot percussion into her performances.

An energetic and captivating solo performer, Mardi Wilson 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.
