SEEKINGVocalist, Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Background Singer, Harmonica.
Hi - I am a guitarist and multi-instrumentalist who has played on the North East music circuit in the UK for many years performing in a variety of musical genres.
As well as offering accomplished playing on electric or acoustic guitar, I play pedal steel, lap steel, resonator and console guitars, mandolin, harmonica, tres Cubano and bass. I can also provide backing or lead vocals. Although I act primarily as a sideman to other artists I do also perform on my own on occasion.
I am also a solicitor with experience in entertainment law, of acting as a producer for both music and television/film and in artist development.
Have a look at my website for more information.
(PS - the sound tracks above are just original stuff I wrote and recorded at home - they don't really reflect what I do gig wise )

Its Never Going To HappenJoe Walker Band - a later track composed by Andrew McDonald (with ever so small a harmonic contribution by Keith Wilson !). Brilliant - nice one Andrew - great track!

You Or Me (late studio version)
You Or Me (late studio version)Late studio version with Adrian Rea on drums and Kevin O'Neill (from Chris Rea Band) on keys. Sorry for the recording quality - I am afraid we never finished the session and this was taken from a cassette copy of a rough mix!
Shades OnA minor blues composition. All playing by me - Keith Wilson (Billy No Mates). I would love to record this with a big band if anyone is interested?

Back To New Orleans
Back To New OrleansReminiscence of trips to New Orleans. Words music and all instruments by me.
The TakersAngry track - written a couple of years ago whilst working for hypocrites. There's a lot of them about. I particularly hate the sanctimonious, self-righteous kind who hide in the compassion industry.
Love GrowsAnother original track recorded in Garageband on the iPad Music and Lyrics by Keith Wilson
