Spree Wilson - Evil Angel (new album / video)

by Alex Suskind

14 April 2010

 

Being raised in Nashville, the spirit of music was instilled in Spree Wilson (born Joseph Young III) at an early age. His father was a hippie activist and a singer in a doo wop band, his mother, grandmother and great-grandmother played the piano and his godfather was the bass player in Jimi Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys. It is no surprise to hear that Spree began playing the saxophone at age six and would eventually teach himself the guitar. 

Now, Spree is on the cusp of trending a new era in hip-hop. His unique blend of poignant lyrics, clever hooks, guitar riffs and a signature croon have won him support from music heavyweights like Dallas Austin and Q-Tip (the latter of whom is executive producing Spree’s debut album, The Beauty of Chaos, slated for an early 2011 release)
