Biography

Tommy Joe Wilson

When asked about the sound and integrity of his music, Tommy Joe Wilson replies with, “It’s a whole lotta me.”

After listening to his debut album and smashing single, “Tryin' To Find The Sun”, you can tell it would be impossible to separate Tommy Joe’s refreshing lyrics from his personal life experiences.
Tommy Joe’s voice is unbelievable! His heart and soul shines through, in his music, making it an instant connection with listeners. Tommy has a hot southern country sound with a new country twist. It’s easy to catch yourself singing along. He has talent that is no lie. With influences like George Strait, Keith Whitley, Skip Ewing and Alabama it explains why Tommy Joe’s love for country music explodes from his debut single scheduled for release in 2009.

It all started for Tommy Joe when he was playing a gig at the Second Fiddle venue in Downtown Nashville on a Monday night in 2006. When out of the ordinary Scott Weiland, lead singer for Stone Temple Pilots, Velvet Revolver & owner of SoftDrive Records, and Duff McKagen of Guns n Roses/Velvet Revolver walked in. They soon jumped up on stage and performed, “HonkyTonk Women”, with Tommy Joe and his incredible band. After that one song Scott Weiland signed Tommy Joe right there on the spot to Softdrive Records. Since then Tommy Joe has landed a music publishing deal with Better Angels Music.

Born in a small town in East Texas, Tommy Joe was always surrounded by good old fashion country music. He recalls “it wasn’t just the music Momma and Daddy listened to. It was a way of life.” This creates a picture of Tommy’s way of life that generates his lyrics and high-quality southern vocals. Tommy Joe’s first live musical encounter came in fourth grade when young Chris Tomlin, now a famous Christian artist, sang “On the Road Again”, for a class show and tell. Soon after the world changed for young Tommy Joe, when his cousin entered a talent competition in a Lake Tawakoni night club called The Siler Spur. Tommy Joe was allowed to tag along to help and watch his cousin’s band and halfway through the show they called Tommy Joe to the stage. He recalls, “I was thinking they can’t be calling me. I don’t sing.” His cousin told him to tell the band what song and the key to play it in. From that moment Tommy Joe went from never really knowing he could sing to winning a talent competition.

Song writing came into his life when he picked up a recording of Skip Ewing, someone he hardly knew. Tommy says, “I found everything in that tape. The melodies were amazing, the lyrics even better and the voice smooth and calm. He seemed to find rhymes in unlikely places.” Skip Ewing from then on was an idol in his life.

Music is medicine to many people and Tommy Joe is a true doctor in country music today.
