Over the course of his thirty-plus-year career, Tom Wilson has put together a body of work impressive in both quantity and quality. A native of Hamilton, Ontario he recorded his first full album, Beat Music, in 1986 with the Florida Razors. He struck Canadian rock gold in the ninetiess as leader of the much-loved Junkhouse. He then found a whole new audience as a crucial component of the roots-rock supergroup Blackie and the Rodeo Kings with fellow bandmates Colin Lindon and Stephen Fearing. Wilson released solo albums in 2001 and 2006 and his 2005 collaboration with Bob Lanois, The Shack Recordings, was critically acclaimed. In 2009 he released A Quiet Evil under the name LeE HARVey OsMOND, which is a collaborative effort with members of the Cowboy Junkies and Skydiggers.

Wilson’s career with the Juno-award-winning Blackie and the Rodeo Kings has flourished with their seven releases on True North Records. Their most recent, Kings and Queens (2011), features a collaboration with a diverse and high-profile roster of fourteen female vocalists, including Lucinda Williams, Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris and Cassandra Wilson.

Wilson’s whiskey-burnished voice is best seen as a force of nature. It is raw, honest and unpretentious, primal and a little dirty, but possess its own unique grace. It is a natural resource that Wilson has both mined and gently honed over the years.

“... this man (Wilson) has an enormous capacity to both write super strong songs and to perform them ... I guarantee that many more than I will fall head over heels for Tom Wilson.” - Rune Häger - Rootsy Magazine (Sweden)
