Biography

Donnie Wilson is a native of Southeastern, MA, and at 40 years old, he is making his first return to writing, recording, and performing in over 13 years. Wilson performed at clubs and colleges throughout New England in the 90's, highlighted by a live performance with Jimmy Buffett and the release of his full length CD titled, "Lather, Rinse, Repeat" in 1997. He left music to pursue a successful career in the mortgage industry which led to founding Province Mortgage Associates, Inc with his peers in 2005. Ten great years of marriage and three wonderful children later, the timing was finally right to pick up the acoustic guitar and stretch out the vocal chords again. Wilson's goal was to release a new album in 2010, the year of his 40th birthday, and to get up in front of a crowd again. Thanks to the fantastic people at the open mike at Rick's Music World in Raynham, MA, support was right around the corner

Wilson's vocal style has been compared to the late Brad Delp from the band BOSTON, as he loves to still scream the high stuff while still being able to bring it down to a soulful whisper. All of his music is written on the acoustic guitar which he openly admits he truly enjoys taking chances and being aggressive. Let's just say there's a lot of scratches and dents on his Washburn acoustic.

His new music is being recorded with his new band, SEDATED ECHO, highlighted by guitarist, engineer, and producer, Alex Krepkikh, and will be released in August 2010. Lighting fast bass player, Joe Calise, and a drummer who is always in demand in New England, Vinny Pagano, round out the live line up. The new CD consists of catchy, powerful rock, oozing layered guitar work and vocals harmonies with a contemporary edge.

Wilson's mission with his music is now defined by the birth of his son Jacob in 2009 when he was born with CHD (a Congenital Heart Defect). This inspired the single, "Super Hero Fantasy" that is being acclaimed by many as the anthem for CHD awareness, especially in the world of heart families. All proceeds from the sale of this single go to research for CHD through Children's Hospital Boston. The band name, SEDATED ECHO, comes from the test that most CHD babies need on a regular basis, and it will always mark Wilson's desire to help others who are follow the same path as hi family.
