Wilson Daniels is a Canadian Singer-songwriter born in Oakville, Ontario. Wilson's home-cooked, roots-inspired music spans many genres including Roots, Americana, Country, Southern Soul, Bluegrass, Reggae, Folk and Gospel. Wilson’s more notable performance and/or songwriting collaborations include “Whiskey Bride” - Wilson Daniels (D.Wilson), “I Got My Girls” - Charissa (D. Wilson/C. Pavlou), “The Grifter’s Life” - Ron Baumber (R. Baumber/D. Wilson) and most recently “Country Strong” - Jonny Porter (D. Wilson). When Wilson is not working on sync placements and artist pitches he is making preparations for his debut album “Ramblings of a Wayward Heart”. Recently through this Nashville based publisher Wilson’s song “Sistershine” was under consideration by “The Chicks”(Dixie Chicks) for Gaslighter and “The Sisterhood Band” (Ruby Stewart). Wilson also secured a recent hold for his Spaghetti Western infused Roots Rock tune “Country Strong” for the CBS mini series “The Stand” (based on Stephen King’s classic) created by Ben Cavell “Vertigo Entertainment” (Homeland, Justified).
"You gotta keep throwing it at the wall, otherwise it’s in your hand" (on making it in the music businesses - W. Daniels)
Stay tuned as Wilson inches closer and closer to a major sync placement or artist cut.
Welcome to my musical testament to the broken - the forgotten - the lonely heart. Next to spending time with my kids, songwriting is my greatest joy. I hope you enjoy these tall tales and lonesome ballads and that these sentimental words and notes fall gently on your ears. I hope you find meaning in my lyrics and that my melodies transport you someplace fresh and new. I hope that you take something personal and poignant from my music - something that is only yours and resonates uniquely with you - that is my mission as a music creator - that is what wakes my muse up at 4:00 am and gives it purpose. There is nothing more rewarding than sharing a new song that invokes an authentic emotional response in a total stranger. I would be satisfied with my legacy as a singer-songwriter if I could leave just one song tattooed on your soul - for me that would be success. My music has enjoyed airplay on CBC Country, SiriusXM and other North American terrestrial and satellite radio stations. Stay tuned for more original music in 2020/2021. Whiskey Bride and I Got My Girls are available on iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube, Amazon, Google Play, Shazam, Deezer, iHeartRadio, Tidal, Slacker... and more. Country Strong will be released to digital platforms worldwide on December 11th, 2020.

A heartfelt ballad crying out for the return of day-to-day life. Holy Water offers a sweet lyrical commentary on the angst of living in lockdown. “I walk downtown in morning rain and mist, to remind myself the worlds exists, to feel the breath of heaven on my skin and taste that sweet, sweet air and breathe it in…”
