Christopher Wilson Bio

Hailed by as "a troubadour from olden times who's just visiting this era," indie folk rocker Christopher Wilson has garnered many positive reviews for his dynamic brand of folk, acoustic rock, and alternative pop-rock songs: "Triumphantly upbeat pop poetry reminiscent of R.E.M.”; "Impressive peaceful tunes, an enjoyable sensation." -Skylight Webzine; "Thought-provoking lyrics reinforced by strong, emotional vocals." -Outsmart magazine 

Wilson self-released his debut album East Mall Daze in 2001.  A video of the single "How Why & When" went into regular rotation on the Austin Music Network.  In spring 2007, "How Why & When" was featured on the boarding music playlist of the entire Delta Air Lines fleet, and eventually was awarded Semi-Finalist placement in the 2011 Song Of The Year songwriting competition. Wilson self-released his second album Read On in 2006.  Read On charted in the CMJ Top 30 at six college radio stations in the USA, while receiving airplay at over 300 college and public radio stations throughout the USA, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Greece, Belarus, Macedonia, and The Netherlands.  The ballad, "If Only" was included on the compilation CD for the fifteenth annual Millennium Music Conference.

Wilson's latest release--rock single and music video "Numb"--is the first song to be released from his upcoming third album entitled Insular. "Numb" was awarded Finalist placement in the 2012 Song Of The Year songwriting competition.
