Wheel Records: WR009
CD (2016)


Buy the CD or digital download from CD Baby or iTunes Canada or iTunes USA.

The first volume of a three-volume set entitled The Valley Road Trilogy

Written in New York City over the course of 18 months, Perennials (Wheel Records, 2016) articulates this singular sound. Thematically, the artist captures Gotham as if seen through F. Scott Fitzgerald's critical lens; the city is, for Wilson, that "once golden shimmering mirage". In this way, Perennials is not a love letter; it is, instead, an expression of longing, a wish for a return to bucolic, "braes ablaze o' green" Ontario where his beloved Gertrude awaits. JASON WILSON and THE PERENNIALS have been transcending to the delight of crowds across Canada, the UK and Jamaica:

Marcus Ali - saxophones/whistles/vocals

Patrice Barbanchon — trumpet/vocals

Perry Joseph — guitars/vocals

Andrew Stewart — bass

Zaynab Wilson — cajon/percussion/vocals

Jason Wilson — vocals/piano/organ/accordion
