Clint Wilson is an acoustic troubadour part of the new wave of Australiana artists who's influences draw from Country, Folk and Americana. His debut album "Dark Water" tells a distinctly Australian story. With a nostalgic, alt-country sound reminiscent of Paul Kelly, Wilson draws from artists such as Crowded House and The Church and brings local context and real world experiences to his music, giving a suburban authenticity that artists like The Go-Betweens, You Am I and Triffids pioneers in the 80s and 90s in Australia.
Lead single "The River Spoke To Me" tells a tale of lost youth - a fictional insight into a Bright river drowning in the early 90s.. Co-written with Kelly Brouhaha, the tune captures Wilson's unique delivery and the very essence that makes this troubadour so refreshing to listen to. His music is real, and raw and honest and paints a magnificent picture into suburban Melbourne.
Previous single Don't Stir Your Coffee If It's Cold, which is a bitter sweet mid tempo ballad looking at the breakdown of communication as a relationship breaks down. It's equal parts Josh Pyke and Pete Murray but with Clint's unique melodic nuance.
