Greenville, S.C. – Three years to the day of his last album release for Wilson Banjo Co.,multi-talented banjo extraordinaire Steve Wilson drops a brand new, original song on Pinecastle Records.
“Wrong Turn That Led Me To You” is a poignant tale of the wrong turns made in life, ultimately leading us to the right place.

The respectable list of players on the new single include: Colton Rudd, lead vocal; Sarah Logan and Scott Burgess, harmony; Richard Bennett, guitar; Steve Wilson, banjo; Glen Crain, reso-guitar; Blake Young, mandolin; and Michael “Porkchop” Branch, bass. The album was recorded and produced by Steve at Bonfire Recording Studio, over this past summer. You can learn more about how Steve came to meet and make music with these fine folks on his song stories webpage.
Wilson had this to say about the new music:
“With the Covid-19 downtime this year, I was able to get back to writing more and focusing on the new project. This album has a special meaning, in that I have included brilliant musicians and vocalists that I have worked with under all of the many hats I wear. Rather than a ‘band’ album, we refer to it as a ‘Company’ release! I have been so privileged to be in the BEST company for the last eight years and it has continued to this day! With my bluegrass family, I have recorded albums for and with them, built banjos for them and been blessed to share a stage with them. The new record called, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION, not only boasts amazing artists, but you will also enjoy a broad scope of music and something for everyone. Bluegrass is a small world and we are all or will all connect at some point in our careers! I believe it! I’m looking forward to sharing each song and it’s story, as well as my ‘six degrees’ connection to the players!”
The first single from the forthcoming project, “Wrong Turn That Led Me To You” is available worldwide today and for radio download from AirPlay Direct.
