This country singer/songwriter is the best and most honest person to hit the country music scene since George Strait himself. The quality he possesses shows in his writing and his voice. He plays guitar with equal ability. This man and his songs have to be heard, it would be criminal to keep his talents locked away! Listen to him sing and you will know what I mean!
Greg has been singing and performing in public since almost the day he got his first guitar. The first band he was in was named "BLUE HORIZON" and was based in Warren, Illinois. The band played early folk music, pop, and a 'little' country. Greg got his first recognition for his songwriting efforts with this band in a competition in Winslow Illinois the band took first place with a song, "Time In A Window" which Greg co-wrote with another band member.
After high school Greg joined his first true country band, "JASON STONE AND THE TUMBLEWEEDS". This popular northern Illinois band played all the big venues in
Illinois and Wisconsin and appeared weekly in a local country radio opry show until the lead singer decided to move to Nashville to pursue his career.
With the drummer and bass player from the Tumbleweeds, Greg formed the "TAILSPIN BAND". An outlaw country band which played everything from Waylon to Van Halen. This band became and instant regional success and released three locally popular singles. They also appeared on several radio shows and were booked regularly on TV in Clinton Iowa as local favorites. The band also opened some summer shows for singers Sylvia and for Crystal Gayle.
After the Tailspin band, the bass player and Greg decided to make a national tour and formed "BLAZER". With this group they toured extensively in the western united states
for about five years before family illnesses caused Greg and the bassist to come home.
Greg spent the next several years reflecting on his life on the road and writing new songs both by himself and with a co-writer from New York. The result was a published song that is being used in a Nashville based TV show and his new CD "FORGETTING TO REMEMBER" which contains 14 original tunes that showcase Greg's writing, playing and singing talents.
2000 was a great year for Greg Wilson with the release of "TAKE IT SLOW".
With a new CD just released in June of 2008 including and featuring Greg's CO-writer wife Donna as well as Greg, I don't think we will be saying goodbye to Greg Wilson anytime soon.
