Convinced Friend is the project of Providence-based Songwriter A.S. Wilson.
Wilson grew up in an oilfield town south of New Orleans, and his songs are marked by the place; in their attention to the little indignities of love and work, a stubborn preoccupation with religion, and an abiding sense of impermanence. After a decade spent in bands across the Midwest and Southeast, along with a stint in divinity school, Wilson found himself in New England in 2018 without a musical community.
This newfound solitude led to a renewed commitment to songwriting, leaning on lifelong touchstones like David Bazan and Magnolia Electric Co. while incorporating recent explorations of shoegaze and folk music developed in other projects.
