The musically devoted front man started his solo career in 2012 when he released his single and accompanying video, “Get Ready.” Wilson now performs internationally, beginning 2014 at Jungle Jam in Costa Rica and then in Merida, Mexico. Currently touring in support of Mishka and Slightly Stoopid in the Northeast, the driven singer-songwriter is simultaneously working on a Brett Wilson EP and Roots of Creation full-length, both slated for 2014 release.
