Bio

'Do This' is the first taste of WILSN's new EP to come in 2019. Influenced by big voices like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Jessie J, and Sam Smith, the singer’s 2015 EP 'Don’t Give It Up' has racked up over 1.2M plays on Spotify. Upon release, 'Don’t Give It Up' was praised by HillyDilly, The Guardian, and Pigeons & Planes, who said “There’s a lot of pop music that strives to be soulful but falls short… (WILSN) is one of the rare artists who actually gets it right.”

“Over the last couple of years, I’ve been pulled in a lot of different directions musically,” says WILSN. “There were a lot of industry types telling me to make THIS type of music, or THAT type of music, and that I should 'be more like so-and-so' or even ‘dress more like so-and-so.' It made me doubt myself so much that I ended up not releasing any music. I got to a point where I’d had enough of listening to everyone’s opinions, and I wanted to just make music that I LOVE. Out of that frustration came 'Do This.’ It’s a very personal and liberating song for me. Singing it is like saying a big 'f**k you' to every music industry person who has ever said my music wasn’t good enough."

Recently WILSN relocated to the US from Australia, a move that sprouted the legs of her next record. Her upcoming EP features collaborations with established writers like the GRAMMY-nominated Ben Abraham (Kesha, Demi Lovato, Sara Bareilles).

Powerhouse vocals! One of those voices that blows your socks off and makes you double take.. and then immediately start clicking along. Leaves you feeling totally empowered.

Monster pop voice on a monster pop song, cleverly produced to give WILSN all the space she needs to sing the walls down.

I love that the minimal use of instrumentation leaves a big wide space for your incredible voice to dominate.
