Twice ARIA nominated singer songwriter Marie Wilson has just announced an Australian east coast tour and crowdfunding campaign with a difference.

Wilson will be performing a series of live music shows to raise funds to record the Song4MS, where 100% of all download sales will be donated to MS Research Australia.

Over the last 5 months and inspired by her two close friends (and twins) who are living with MS, the Song4MS has attracted much interest from the MS community worldwide, mostly because they are the ones writing the lyrics to the song.

“Songwriting saved my life,” said Marie, an award winning songwriter, “and I wanted to give my two friends a gift that was from the heart to show my love and support.”

Through a series of video updates since the start of 2016, Wilson has invited those living with or touched by Multiple Sclerosis to contribute their words, thoughts or feelings about their own experience with MS.

“Music has such a powerful impact on our lives, and by inviting fans to participate in the creation of the lyrics, means we can create a song that’s really meaningful,” Wilson claims.

Now, with the song in its final stages, Wilson is preparing to record the song with her long time producer Joe Hardy (ZZTop, Tom Cochrane, Steve Earle) after which it will be available for download.

“Music has the ability to connect like nothing else and if it helps one person living with MS to have a better day, then it’s a success.”

And for those who’d like to get up close and personal, Marie is inviting anyone who’d like to meet and chat to her about her music or her Song4MS to join her the following day locally. Check out her website at www.mariewilson.com for locations and all the details.

“I’ve had online conversations with many people from within the MS community over the last few months, and I thought this was a good opportunity to meet face to face.”

Catch Marie Wilson live at The Milk Factory, 48 Montague St, South Brisbane on Saturday 6th August with special guests Kristy Apps and the Shotgun Shirleys.
