A poetic lyricist, Sydney singer-songwriter Mark Wilkinson’s voice and songwriting has drawn comparisons to artists like Damien Rice, Ray LaMontagne and David Gray. For more than a decade, he’s been forging profound and enduring connections with listeners in the studio, on the stage, and even in the streets, where impromptu busking sessions landed him both a national TV booking and a major licensing deal. A magnetic live performer, Wilkinson has managed to sell more than 70,000 copies of his self-released CDs, rack up millions of streams on Spotify, and build up a devoted global audience. Upon making his American debut, Wilkinson was named SiriusXM’s Discovery of the Year, and has earned spots on bills with artists like Brian Wilson, Rodriguez and Xavier Rudd.

“I went from performing to groups of less than 100 people at some gigs to performing on stage in front of thousands, which was obviously a completely different experience” says Wilkinson. “Watching those bigger acts perform taught me not to be overawed by the size of the show, though. At the end of the day, the gig is still all about connecting with listeners on a personal level.”

In the end, that’s what Wilkinson’s music is all about, too. Evocative and soulful, his performances tap into the common thread of love, pain, hope, and desire that flow just below the surface of our daily lives.

“There’s a glow of warmth around him and a richness to his supreme voice, sending shivers down spines as he pulls you into the soul of him” – Hazel Buckley, The Music
