Thin Man

by Robert Wilson

Sounds like a rainy sunday afternoon while your doing the dishes, like when It feels so damn good to feel sad. Think of the soft tone of a James Taylor, the soul of Otis Redding, and the girl/boy you wish you could have kept.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of Vancouver's most gifted songwriters"
Tom Zillich , The Westender,

At 27 years old, Robert Wilson has seen his share of the bazaar. Raised in the Canadian far north, he rode a dog sled at the age of 5. His 18th Birthday found him in Malaysia selling his belongings to buy a bus ticket. At 21 he was in New York city arresting car thieves with The Guardian Angels community policing organization, and by 24 he was busking the Picadilly line on the London Underground At 26 he released his first full length CD - 'Thin Man. '

Robert Wilson, one of Vancouver's favourite artists, captures that rare combination of up tempo melodies and great lyrics. "Sharp edged acoustic pop, crafted with wit and inner turmoil," says CBC Radio. (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation)

Throughout countless performances from street corners to nightclubs, Wilson has developed a savvy and intimate style that is both melancholy and celebratory, often at the same time.

Wilson's accomplishments include nominations for the Georgia Straight and West Coast Music Awards (as both musician and producer) and contributions to the soundtracks of various Canadian film projects, His first full-length recording, Thin Man, was released to a sold-out house and critical acclaim. He has also completed successful European and West Coast tours.

Robert Wilson is a master storyteller with engaging yarns to spin, energetic melodies, and a voice that's cozy as Linus's blanket.

Even my 14 year old is now hooked!
This is the first time I ever heard Robert Wilson...CD Baby recommended him after I ordered something else because they thought I would like his music, too. His version of "When Doves Cry" (a song I hated when Prince did it) is so good full blast with the car windows down...there's nothing better. Even my 14 year old daughter and her friends think he is the coolest!

Rob Never Disappoints
Robs talent is unquestionable. I went backwards--had Be My Habit first, then this one. Rob sings from his heart and is always great as music in the forefront or background. I play his music at my restaurant in Philadelphia all the time and always have guests asking me 'hey...who's this?'

Sweet and low
A very nice voice, though sometimes whiney.
Cool sounds, though the slick production sounds "sessiony". Nice songs, but become somewhat repetitive in structure.
Here's hoping that the next CD is an improvement on the potential.

Thin man's album the very last song, it plays around 12 min after the last song
Thin man on the this album I bought at the Commadore Ball room he was fantastic one day I payed down and listened to the whole album and didn't press stop and after around 12 minutes after the last song another one started to play and it was funny and great fun ,I list the Al I'm many years ago ,my son and I would sing Think That Your The One together all the time ,and I am going to share this with him again but please let me know how I can get that song, I don't have enough to download the whole album and I don't know if it would be on one downloaded but definitely it was on that CD let me know as I'm sure his fans who don't know about would love it just like I did.

Buy this c.d!
One of the only c.d.'s I never get sick of listening to. I was sick of Norah Jones in 2 weeks! Do yourself and buy "Thin Man" - support west coast artists!

A four now, five will come when he's worldwide in a couple of years.
I met Rob Wilson music overseas in 1997...and in the four years since that time I've never tired of the lyrical magic that is Thin Man. Put the cd in, hit "repeat" and you're in for a soulful day. I cannot wait for the day I click on the radio and "Green Walls" spills into the room...it won't be long until that time.

Amazing!
I first heard Think That You're the One in a movie called Decoys. I fell in love with the sound and the music, he truly has an amazing voice, nothing like I've ever heard before. I watch that same scene in Decoys over and over just to hear the song. I'm planning on buying this cd and I think others should too. I'm currently playing the tracks and the cd blows my mind, I just love it!

Fabulous, straight-to-the-point, passionate song writing . . . obviously from th
Thin Man is definitley one of the best albums to come out of Vancouver.
The writing is raw and beautiful and Rob's voice is unforgettable! A great
album that is radio-friendly, and inviting. It can be listened to over
and over without boredom. It's awesome!
