Mardi Wilson

"The first song I've heard from Mardi and it's quite the intro. what a captivating voice." - Declan Bryne (Triple J Presenter - Home and Hosed)"Got that same raw-nerved and emotional approach as the world beating Amy Shark with perhaps a more easy-going edge. Nice." - Dave Ruby Howe (Triple J Unearthed Music Director)A raw and authentic one person show, Mardi Wilson is making waves in the industry with her unique surf folk style and emotive lyrics. From an early age, Mardi enjoyed writing lyrics and poetry but was introduced to the world of music when she started drumming at the age of 12. Now, Mardi now incorporates guitar, vocals and foot percussion into her live performances.Mardi has spent many months touring Australia. In between shows in capital cities and regional towns, Mardi hops between campsites in her home on wheels, gaining inspiration and connecting with nature. In May this year, Mardi released her debut album "Get Lost" which received a 5 star review in the Sydney Morning Herald "Sweetly soaring and escapist- this perfect Australian album demands attention" (Jessie Cunniffe). An energetic and captivating solo performer, Mardi is constantly inspired by her personal experiences to create music that continues to resonate with audiences as she travels and plays.
