"Athene Wilson"

Yes, folks! The first CD released with 2010 on it and a few weeks early! Time, as they oft say, is relative and so is my patience but that's another matter! Athene Wilson is another new talent to spring to the forefront on the quality soul scene and sure starts 2010 off on a really good note. This is not a kiddies' RnB album. It has a definitive adult feel and would not be out of place with quality releases from the late 80s. - Soulchoonz Y2K Album Reviews - December 2009


"It's About Time for Hub Singer"

Some artists believe there comes a point in life where taking a chance matters most. For Athene Wilson, that time is now, reflected in her debut album, aptly titled “It’s About Time.” - Bay State Banner - February 24, 2010


"Athene Wilson"

One would figure that there has to be a place on radio for such a refined and self-assured singer. Hopefully, even if Athene Wilson is not fortunate enough to get a lot of radio play, soul music fans will take the time to look for her. They'll be glad they did. - SoulTracks - April 2010


Discography
