Artist Of The Week

Siobhan Wilson’s story begins in her native Scotland, where she studied classical music by day while ransacking her father’s record collection each night. Joni Mitchell, John Martyn and Willie Nelson informed her inquisitive young ears, while the likes of Regina Spektor and Nina Simone helped to inspire the music you can hear today. A well-traveled artist, Siobhan studied music and composition in Edinburgh and then Paris, where she relinquished the classical world for a burgeoning interest in jazz and immersed herself in the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Jacques Brel. A six-month sojourn to the U.S. followed, which she spent collaborating and recording with artists and musicians in Woodstock. Now back in Scotland, Siobhan has been mesmerizing audiences throughout the country with performances in front of packed rooms in venues such as The Queens Hall, Edinburgh and the Royal Concert Hall, Glasgow, as well as UK tours supporting the likes of Willy Mason, Justin Currie (Del Amitri) and Lau. She also recently garnered critical acclaim for her stunning “New Voices” commission for Celtic Connections and will showcase in Los Angeles next month at MUSEXPO.
