A raw and authentic one person show, Mardi Wilson (24) is a Brisbane based musician, making waves in the industry with her unique alternative folk style and emotive lyrics. From an early age Mardi enjoyed writing lyrics and poetry but was officially introduced to the world of music when she started learning the drums at the age of 12. In her later years of high school, Mardi switched her focus from drumming to learning guitar, allowing her to further explore her love of song writing. Now, having combined these skills, Mardi incorporates guitar, vocals and foot percussion into her performances.
Between 2018 and 2019, Mardi spent many months on the road, embarking on three separate independently planned tours of the East Coast of Australia. In between shows in capital cities and regional towns, Mardi would hop from campsite to campsite in her home on wheels, gaining inspiration and connecting with nature. Since returning to Brisbane in December 2019, Mardi has been enjoying gigging locally and working on recording her debut album. Her most recent releases Runaway, Don't Stop and Astronaut are just a taste of what this album has in store.
An energetic and captivating solo performer, Mardi is constantly inspired by the people in her life and her natural surroundings to create music which continues to resonate with audiences as she travels and plays.
