Here’s our second release.

Just a little bit of darkness to make the sunshine in your life seem brighter.

 Real Life


This was our first single.

Me and my orchestra have cooked up a song and a rain-drenched video.


 So, I’ve got an
orchestra now.


Okay, it’s not an orchestra.

More like a banjo-harp-gentle-rockin-happy machine.

We don’t know what to call it, but we want everyone to know about it. In the picture above that’s Quillan Roe, Jacques Wait, me and Phala Tracy. The music has a light shining out of it, happiness in the sound. We play the most beautiful music from all eras including my own best songs dating back to the beginnings of my songwriting quest and all the way up to the present.

Matt Wilson & His Orchestra – upcoming shows


I’m so lucky to be part of

The Twilight Hours.

Oh yes, there he is. John Munson. Always watching over me. All of my music for so many years has been all mixed up in the magic of this big sweetheart. It’s fun for us to play electric guitars. But what won’t appear on any public calendar are the acoustic house concerts that John and I perform all year long. Seems like we’ve played at everyone’s house EXCEPT YOURS. We want to come and play for your friends at your house.

Any little trick

Maybe the only remarkable thing about me is that my musical quest has been absolutely continuous. I have never stopped. From the time I was a little rug rat in St. Louis Park, I've been poking around and exploring, in my mind, on a guitar, looking for a connection, a pathway from emotion to sound and back again. I tinker and fumble for methods to crack into the strongbox of your heart and my heart to release what’s in there. I’ll try any little trick, any combination of words and sound that can bring us to that moment of revelation. And the best for me is to make that happen when we’re all together. On top of all that stuff, I really want to understand the universe and where we stand within it. I want to believe that love and kindness are somehow at the base of everything. But mostly, I want to know the truth. For now, all I can do is to keep looking around corners, seeking for light, scanning for fragments and moments that are true. Whatever I find, I’ll try to bring it to you.
