Biography

Bryan Wilson has often been confused with Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys. Excited reporters would call out of nowhere and start asking him about “Good Vibrations” or “I Get Around” once, a producer from MSNBC was on the phone with him for five minutes before he realized this was a different surfer dude. “I found it hilarious,” Wilson says. “Why would that Brian Wilson be in South Carolina where I was living at the time?” While Brian Wilson is a legend in pop music, Bryan Wilson has been a star on the gospel circuit since he was twelve years old.

In 1994, Bryan burst on the music scene with a soulful, melismatic rendition of “His Eye is on the Sparrow” with the Mississippi Children’s Choir that made him an overnight gospel sensation. What followed was Dove and Stellar award nominations, two solo CDS and tours with a who’s who of gospel artists such as John P. Kee, Albertina Walker and Bryan’s mentor, the late James Moore. After a voice change and time off for college at Princeton University, Bryan is now ready for A Second Coming - his first CD release since 1999 and it’s a departure.

Wilson’s childhood music was traditional, old school gospel. “I had no choice in what I sang.” he laughs. “They basically handed me some songs and said do you like this one or that one?” So, not only is the new project an exciting blend of faith and urban rhythms; but it’s the first time Wilson had a hand in writing, co-producing and arranging all of the songs. “My manager had asked some known songwriters to submit songs for the project and nothing came through,” Wilson recalls. “So, I just started writing what the Lord placed on my heart and this is the result.”
