Innes Wilson

Originally from Vancouver, BC Innes Wilson is based in Guelph, Ontario and has been writing and performing music since 1999. His band, Innes Wilson & his Opposition were DIY pioneers in the turbulent music scene of the early 2000s, forging touring routes, new publicity methods, and handmade silkscreen merchandise for their label Out of Sound Records. They released two critically acclaimed records between 2007 and 2011, earning regular airplay on CBC Radio 3 and a CBC Bucky Award nomination.
Innes then took a 6 year hiatus and returned in 2017 with the subsequent release of several new records: Bedford Hills (produced by Adam Warren), Northumberland Slums (self-produced), and Seaview EP, which featured the talented members of WHOOP-Szo as his backing band. With each release, Innes Wilson has received praise and radio airplay across the country. His albums have charted locally and nationally at college & community stations, with Northumberland Slums reaching #1 on !earshot's National Folk Chart in 2018.
