Marjo Wilson

Hello. I am a fine art painter as well as a singer/songwriter musician.
i live in the country with my husband and 3 dogs and I love my life.
I grew up in Northern Calif in what I like to call the "WILDLANDS"… and I still live there today.

I was raised on a cattle ranch and I went to a public school with mostly Indians from the local Round Valley Indian Tribes Reservation. So I literally grew up with Cowboys and Indians in the Wild West! lol!
Now-a-days I like to say that I’m “half cowboy- half indian - half hippie - and half wild mountainchick! and a little bit of city-girl too! “
I still live in the little town of Covelo, CA where I grew up and I love all the people here like family.

I paint animals and the river and the dusty roads and the creeks - the country life I live in. I’ve had a working Dance Band for many years-The Marjo Wilson Band- and I make music that has a "retro feel"- hailing back to the days of Van Morrison and that earthy classic rock-- Hammond B-3 and saxophone -with strong lead female vocals and a eclectic mix of dance beats. Over the years- when not playing or recording with the full band- I’ve been recording more acoustic sounds- vibing a bit the Jack Johnson “up-close-and-personal" vocal/guitar sound- always with a definite groove.
All of my music is a mix of rock and blues- with a dusty country feel. I sing about the life I live- the ground- the history- the river- the people- my heart- my dogs- my life.

My most recent recording is an album of “MUSIC FOR THE FAMILY. “ Hoping to inspire some fun singing and clapping together- in the Car- and in the Kitchen—A fun little set of 'down-home' songs- for All Ages- (i like to say it's music made for Ages: Under Six!- Over Sixty! -& EVERYONE in between!!) - Straight from the heart- meant for the heart! A 10 song Cd that comes with a matching picture booklet with lyrics- a booklet that I illustrated and designed myself and features a little character I made up named COTTON DANDEE. COTTON lives in a hay field with his three dogs and all his animal friends- strums an old ukulele with some broken strings and loves to write songs and sing and get everyone to join in on the fun!! I like to say -" Just imagine a fun little country dusty mix of Willie Nelson and Winnie the Pooh! “ lol! ; )

Thank you for your interest in my music! ;)
