Biography

“Joe Wilson is a 25 year-old singer/songwriter from Bogota, New Jersey and the ex-front man for now defunct acoustic-rock duo, Feeling Left Out. On April 11, 2006, Wilson will release his solo debut, ‘A Day In My Shoes’ and tour the U.S. throughout the spring and summer of 2006.

During his five-year stint as Feeling Left Out, Wilson accumulated over 500,000 listens on his PureVolume music website, and amassed an army of zealous fans willing to cross state lines to see him perform. It was this independent success that prompted major label interest in hopes of developing the next Dashboard Confessional or Bright Eyes.

However, following band mate Bill Putrino’s departure from the group in October of 2004, Wilson found himself at a career crossroads. Should he continue as Feeling Left Out or evolve into a solo artist? His decision: to build upon the strength of his name and forsake the reputation he had created as a band.

What resulted was Wilson’s greatest achievement to date; an 11-song masterpiece influenced by everything “beautiful and shitty about life”. A more mature sound emerged as Wilson grew beyond the emotional genre that pigeonholed Feeling Left Out.

Yet, ‘A Day In My Shoes’ exemplified exactly what Wilson’s fans knew and loved about his music; poignant and relatable lyrics accompanied by passionate melodies that inspire intense connections with listeners, mixtape compilations and road-trip sing-alongs.

Joe Wilson makes indie folk music for the post-emo set. But classifications aside, there’s no denying the catchiness and genuine sincerity of every song on ‘A Day In My Shoes’, for Wilson’s optimism is as contagious in real life as it is on tape. “
