Bio

Robert Wilson was just 16 years old, but he already knew what he was going to do for the rest of his life. Standing in a crowd watching Billy Bragg play, he was amazed by how the solo English musician captivated his audience. One day, he decided, his live shows would inspire the same reaction.

Now on the heels of his much-anticipated sophomore album, "Be My Habit," the multiple award-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer has established himself as one of Vancouver's most engaging live performers, and has shared live shows with Jason Mraz, Grammy Award winner Shelby Lynne, Dan Bern, and The Brothers Creeggan (Barenaked Ladies), to name just a few.

A textured blend of soul and folk, Robert's highly personal songs range from sweetly quiet to playfully upbeat - and, often using a loop pedal to sample live melodies and percussive beats on his guitar, he creates a uniquely rich, layered sound.

Robert's onstage persona is just as warm and captivating as his music. Weaving tales about everything from tour stop adventures to world politics to romantic relationships into his performance, he instantly makes any venue feel like a living room filled with friends. "When I play live, I want it to be a 2-way conversation with the audience," he says. "Nothing else matters much in those moments. It's just the music, the audience, and me."
