Wilson + The Cast Aways is an indie folk collective based in Mississauga, Ontario (Canada). Lead by Singer/Songwriter Andrew Wilson, the band is made up of a rotating cast of his friends each talented artists in their own right. With a range of acoustic instruments, and voices swapping off lead & harmony parts between and within songs, the band's goal is a simple one: to serve the songs; to write, craft and share the songs in such a way that the story can be felt, and not just heard by each person in their audience. From the quietest of ballads to foot-stomping, sing-a-longs, to wild folk-epics, sharing a connection is always at the heart of their work.
"I believe that the best kind of songs, the ones that truly connect with people -- and connecting with people is really all this is about -- are the ones that are true...now that doesn't always mean that the story in them happened, but rather that it could have."
