Fenn Wilson is one of this country’s most exciting new young performers.
With his stunning vocals and mesmerising stage presence, he shows a depth of talent which belies his young age, prompting both Queenscliff Music Festival and Port Fairy Festival to announce him as their emerging artist of the year in 2018/19. Think George Ezra with Nick Cave’s early songbook.
With a baritone that is resonant and expressive well beyond his years, Fenn’s songwriting forms a snapshot of his recent past; brushes with heartache, depression, world-weariness and uncertainty, and often lightened with compassionate observation, love and redemption.
His debut album, ‘Ghost Heroin’ also featuring younger brother George (Bones & Jones, Pollyman), saw AIR making it their feature album of the week and critics reaching for superlatives.
“I can’t get over how good it is. ….something you can actually describe as ‘perfect’ … This track is rare.” – Jonathan Alley, Triple R
‘So swept up in this heartfelt, bluesy beauty from Fenn and the bare bones appeal makes it so much more powerful.” – Declan Byrne, Triple J
