In addition to his work with other artists, Wilson has released solo albums, such as "Free Life" and "Live at the Pantages," and his third solo album, "Love Without Fear," was released in 2014. His latest album, "Little Bit of Sun," was released in September 2023. Wilson is also known for his visual artistry and has studied visual arts at Harvard University.
