Genre: Pop

From Dunville, Newfoundland, Amy Wilson is currently based in St. John’s, Newfoundland.  Wilson is both a Music and English teacher and singer-songwriter.  Her debut release entitled “On Repeat” was made available via iTunes on June 1, 2015.  “On Repeat” earned the singer-songwriter a MusicNL nomination.  Additionally, the album’s single “Never See Me Cry” made it into the Top 10 finalists for Newfoundland in the CBC Searchlight Competition.

I enjoyed listening to the album. The selected eight tracks for the album captivate Wilson’s voice well and is the aspect of “On Repeat” that stood out the most for me.  In particular, the slower-tempo tracks like “An Old Man Once Said,” “Never See Me Cry,” and “Lying Here” are the best examples showing both emotion and talent.  The stand-out tracks for me, however, were “On Repeat” and “The Things.”  Although pop, the instrumentals do not overpower the vocals and are fun to sing to once knowing the lyrics.

I would recommend listening to “Never See Me Cry” and “On Repeat” to get a taste of the album.  If you enjoy them, I would definitely pick up “On Repeat” by Amy Wilson via iTunes.
