Bio

'Do This' and 'Home' are 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 Complex's 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."

WILSN has recently spent time in the US, which 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).

Enough power in this to jump start a tank. WILSN's in control of the artillery and ready to fire with this charged up kiss off.
