[2] On June 14, 2017, it was announced via a press release that he had joined Saving Abel.[3]

Tantric (2013-2017)[edit]

Wilson served as the bass guitarist for Tantric beginning in 2013, appearing with them on multiple national tours and one album, Blue Room Archives. He was recruited shortly after the production of the band's previous album 37 Channels,[4] and appeared with the band on multiple tours, including the 2016 edition of the Make America Rock Again tour, sharing the stage with Trapt, Saving Abel, Saliva, and more.[5] In an interview with Stone Age Rock Report, Wilson described the tour as "a big success for the band and quite eventful”.[6] In July 2017, Wilson announced publicly that he would be leaving the band, and had already begun working on new material with Saving Abel.[7]

Saving Abel (2017-Present)[edit]

Saving Abel announced via their Facebook that Wilson would be replacing Eric Taylor on bass guitar on June 14, 2017. The band is currently working on writing a new record.[8]
