Graham Wilkinson is constantly reinventing himself. The single “FOCUS” off of his 2011 release “the spiritual accessories ep” made it all the way to MTV.com and remained the #1 Most Shared, Most Commented On, & Most Viewed for over a week; all done as a completely independent, unsigned artist. All of this is on the foundation of his 2009 release “YEARBOOK” which featured Alejandro Escovedo & Hayes Carll. In between recording, family time, & touring he has opened for such national acts as G. Love, Trevor Hall, The Gourds, Johnathan Tyler & the Northern Lights, Soul Rebels Brass Band & Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Hayes Carll, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Greg Brown, Alejandro Escovedo and dear friend Kimya Dawson.
Wilkinson recently stepped into Studio 1A to play songs off his new album #BecauseOfYou which he recorded with fellow Austinites Katie Shore (Asleep at the Wheel), Trevor Nealon (Band of Heathens), Tijuana Trainwreck Horns (Shinyribs) and Adrian Quesada (too much to list). Enjoy!
