American West Coast blues singer, born approx. 1921-1923 in Louisiana; died 1965 in Dallas, Texas.

Wilson was first discovered in 1951 while singing on the West Coast with the Rising Stars of Oakland. Two years later he cut a series of records, including "Tin Pan Alley", for Bob Geddins in Oakland with Que Martin (saxophone), King Soloman (piano), and Lafayette Thomas (guitar).
