ABOUT Byrdie Wilson

Byrdie evolved into a sassy little six-year-old, (looking like Snooki from MTV’s Jersey Shore), and performed in a talent show she signed herself up for. As she was getting ready, she instructed her family that they needed to get on board because she’s going to be someone!”
 And the journey began… Working her early years with vocal coaches Celeste Simone and American Idol Coach, Michael Orland, Byrdie was prepared to work with The Peter Frampton Band’s Musician, Singer/Songwriter Rob Arthur, to produce her first three songs “Fool for You”, “Stay” and “Breaking Free” in 2018.  She took a brief hiatus from music in 2019 and 2020, but it wasn’t until the death of her boyfriend in November 2020 when she found solace and healing in her song writing again.  In March 2021, Byrdie found the guidance, mentorship and friendship of Musician, Singer/Songwriter and Producer Erik Halbig. 

At 19, Byrdie took the leap, moved to Nashville and has turned up the volume on her natural born “sass” with even more feistiness.  She recently released her first single, co-written and produced by Erik Halbig.  “Hold My Hoops” on January 28th followed by “Queen”, Heartbreak Tattoo” and “Better Breaking Up”.
