Mardi Wilson is a singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, self-managed, alternative folk artist. Hoping to help people learn about themselves and others through storytelling and music, she released Astronaut earlier this year that dove into her insecurities and her drive to simply accept them.
Returning now to give fans a second taste from her upcoming debut album, Mardi Wilson has just released Don’t Stop which was first premiered on Music Is My Muse. Drawing from party culture, the song features Mardi‘s velvet vocals, confident guitar work and a slew of surprising percussion and sound effects including bottle caps, credit cards, sirens and drunken babbling which she recorded at a relatives house party.
“‘Don’t Stop’ is a track about “that one mate” who always wants to get loose and has a habit of taking things a step too far. On a deeper level this song alludes to the constant search for the next best thing, whether this is internally or in our day to day lives.” –Mardi Wilson
Recorded at Blind Boy Studios with producer Brad Hosking, they shared instrument duties with Mardi covering percussion, drums and some guitar with Brad adding in beats, guitar solo’s and backing vocals.
You can find Mardi Wilson spending a lot of her time sharing music up and down the coast line between Brisbane and NSW, connecting with musicians and song writing often.
