Toronto indie artist Wilton Said... likes to write lyrical topics which explore the places others may find uncomfortable. This can range from the homicidal school shootings in "No Other Way" off of 1999's release "World up my Ass", the ode to the oversexed pearl necklace stalker in "All for You" off of 2001's release "Broken", through to the public washroom romp in "What I've Seen" off of 2004's " The Butterfly Plague". His last release titled "The View" takes a look at topics that we can all relate to but don't necessarily want to. The struggle to find an identity so we may fit in as heard in "Pretty". The lust for control and domination to soothe our own weaknesses in "A Family Affair". The struggles with addictions and deceit brought to light in "Merry go Round". "The Empty Sky" with it's theme of coming to terms with hopeless situations.
While Wilton's past studio and live experiences has had an assortment of musicians backing him up, his current and most stable line up consists of the angular textural stylings of Guitarist Chris Reid, the groove and grounded Bass playing of Frank Heisler, and the subtle yet intricate Drumming of Richard Rizzo.
WILTON SAID..., who holds a Degree in Musical Composition from York University, has been performing in the G.T.A. promoting his various CD's through live shows and interviews. For more information regarding future shows and events, please visit the website at www.wiltonsaid.com.
