Wilson started writing songs for her maiden solo record about two years ago while on tour with Wild Child and Glorietta — the one-off “bud band” dreamed up by her pal, Austin rocker Matthew Logan Vasquez of Delta Spirit, featuring David Ramirez, Nathaniel Rateliff, Noah Gunderson, Adrian Quesada of Black Pumas, and Jason Robert Blum.
The result: Wilson’s Motown-influenced, genre-bending hip-hop, gospel solo-debut “Party City” released under her acid-trip inspired stage name, “Sir Woman.”
“I wrote a lot of these Sir Woman songs when my life was out of control. I was stuck in a perpetual party with the ultimate excuse of being an artist. I was so tired of the “sad suffering songwriter” routine, spending all of this time and energy finding inspiration in being hurt so I could pour more love songs into other people.”
So, Wilson started writing songs for herself.
