Melburnian Clint Wilson released his debut album Dark Water in 2018. Another Death in the Family followed in 2020, reaching number 12 on ARIA Australian Country Charts and number 2 on the iTunes Country Albums Chart.

For his third album, LA, Wilson left Australia to record in California – as the album’s title suggests – although this came about mostly through happenstance. While the country music influences are still there in Wilson’s music the location of the recording has had a sonic influence on the songs, which have a different – one might say sunnier – tone than those of his previous albums. We talked about that, and other things, in our recent interview. You can watch our chat on YouTube (below), or listen in Soundcloud (below) or on the podcast.

Wilson is launching LA in Melbourne, at the Lyre Room, on 18 August – details and tickets here. | Listen to LA on Apple Music
