About this artist

Posted By Spree Wilson

After selling his car and purchasing a one-way ticket to the City of Lights, Spree arrived in NYC with just his suitcase and guitar; and he found himself homeless and living in Penn Station for several weeks.

A mutual friend eventually introduced him to Q-Tip, who was impressed by Spree’s songwriting. Q-tip would ultimately help land the upstart a major label deal with Jive Records. During his time with Jive, Spree began working on his album--writing songs constantly and ultimately landing a publishing deal with Universal Music Group.

Since then, Spree has co-written Afrojack’s single “The Spark,” which he is also featured on as an artist. “The Spark” has been A-listed on BBC’s radio 1. In addition, he has co-written “Sin City” on Kanye's Good Music compilation album "Cruel Summer" with Teyana Taylor. The album went #1 on the US Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums, US Top Rap Albums and #2 on US Billboard 200. He has collaborated with noteworthy producers such as Q-Tip, Novel, No I.D., Jim Jonsin, Nana Kwabena, Malay, Robin Hannibal (of Rhye), Frequency and Organized Noize. Most recently, he co-wrote "Chief Don't Run" on Jidenna's debut album, "The Chief"

His upbringing in Nashville exposed him to everything from George Jones to George Harrison to George Benson; he’s as much hip-hop as he is pop—a rock star rebel with the spirit of a b-boy. This love of all musical styles is what drives Spree’s ever-broadening sound, musicianship, songwriting and style.
