With the big city lights calling, fresh off the plane from a tour of the USA and with upcoming performances in Russia, Europe and Japan, Wilson places her success down to perseverance, a real passion for music and a hard-working Aussie attitude.

A number of Wilson’s tracks also feature on 8 clips in Fashion TV currently airing across the world. With all that said and done, Wilson developed her passion for music while growing up on the Gold Coast however was quick to spread her wings. Starting out gigging with a live house band in Melbourne, the singer soon looked abroad; really sinking her teeth into the dance music scene in London. “It’s been a learning process and self-discovery,” she says. All in all, the move clearly paid off with her career blossoming over a four year stint playing to capacity club crowds in London, Dubai, Moscow, St Petersburg, Spain, Italy, France, Ireland, Scotland, USA, Canada and recording releases on record labels in London, New York, Canada, Belgium, Australia and the Netherlands. Wilson says that while performing for crowds of 45,000 was exhilarating, singing for the Russian President on a floating nightclub in the Black Sea has been the highlight of her career so far. It’s clear Wilson’s passion for music and her enthusiasm and drive will take her to the top. “I’ve been lucky enough to work with some of the world’s best DJs and producers,” says Wilson. When you work with the best, you create the best. This year has certainly heated up for the electro dance powerhouse, a knockout on her recent tour of Europe, Japan & the USA, across the world’s biggest party destinations. But to her home-grown fans: don’t worry; with recent Australian performances in every major city including The Ivy – Sydney, Jupiters, East – Gold Coast and Fashion Lounge – Melbourne, Jamie Lee Wilson is quickly becoming the one to watch.
