‘What is & Where is’ is a collection of songs recorded in Aberdeen/Scotland 2006 after a nine month travel experience in Australia and South East Asia.
The songs are a mixture of mellow folk inspired tracks, upbeat acoustic blues rock tracks, acoustic guitar instrumentals, spoken word and songs with world music influences.
“At the age of 25 I went travelling throughout Eastern Australia and South East Asia. The songs, music and poetry you hear on this album are a direct result from that journey and what was such a life-changing time for me and so full of inspiration.
When I returned to my then hometown in Aberdeen/Scotland, with the help of musician friends, we set about recording this album”
‘What is & Where is’ was a group effort of friends and family in Aberdeenshire/Scotland, each contributing skills, musicianship and support.
From the recording of the album we went on to create a six-piece folk rock band that performed many of the songs from this album, including performances at ‘Breemie Midsummer Festival, June 2006 – Aberdeenshire/Scotland’ ‘The Blue Lamp, Sep & Nov 2006 – Aberdeen/Scotland’ and an album launch at ‘The Lemon Tree, January 2007 – Aberdeen/Scotland’. The album went on to become a firm favourite with Wilson’s father & mother who at the time became his biggest fans!

‘What is & Where is’ was recorded and mixed in a home studio over a six month period in 2006, and then finally mastered in 2016.
