Geoffrey Lamar Wilson

Geoffrey Lamar Wilson is a musician and composer, born and raised in Minnesota. He left home at 18 heading to New York for college, and big city adventure. After finishing a degree in saxophone performance and composition, he took a hiatus from sax and decided to learn guitar and become a singer songwriter, while also pursuing a masters in Music Psychotherapy. He moved to Brooklyn and from there led the band Jus Post Bellum with his now wife Hannah.

Since returning to Minneapolis in 2016, his songwriting has shifted from Post Bellum narratives to more contemporary issues spanning the American Civil Rights era to current incidents of racial violence and police brutality. He draws inspiration from the simple musicality, cutting wit and lyricism of Bob Dylan, the stark narratives and brutal honesty of James Baldwin, and a childhood steeped in Soul, Funk, and R&B. He has also composed and recorded themes for several radio podcasts including 74 Seconds and Flyover, occasionally scores short films, and in 2019 toured a handful of U.S cities with the live performance of the podcast Terrible, Thanks for Asking, with Nora McInerny, which he also wrote the theme music for. Recently he’s dusted off his saxophone and is working on a new multi-layered saxophone project, as well as new singer-songwriter content, with plans to release new music for both projects in 2022.
