Fenn Wilson’s lyrics turn pain into poetry, laced with light; compassion and wisdom beyond his years imbue every line.

Memorable hooks abound, without a trace of gimmick or cliché…..and then there’s his voice. He has just released a second single, ‘Laying With The Bones’, taken his forthcoming sophomore album.
