We are glad to present the music of mystic minstrel Chad Wilkins. If you’ve been to any of Chad’s live events, you know that his music is more of an invitation than a performance - an experience to be entered into. Chad’s style is unique. Being a multi-instrumentalist himself, he combines many influences to create a blend that is hard to categorize. Folky, progressive, contemplative, mystical - but the point is the message. His songs vary from upbeat, positive-vibe celebration tunes to deep, devotional guided meditations, all showcasing conscious lyrics - challenging, provoking, inspiring, drawing, awakening. Some are poetic images of Chad’s own spiritual journey; some are journeys in themselves.
Originally from the magnificent mountain region of Lake Tahoe on the California/Nevada border, USA, Chad relocated to Australia in 2004. After a few years of international travel doing humanitarian aid and healing work, including a couple years in Cambodia, he is now based near beautiful and colourful Byron Bay, Australia where he lives with his wife, Tash and their two children Isa and Sundar. Although music has been an integral part of Chad’s existence and artistic expression for most of his life, it is here in Byron Bay that his musical journey has taken on a more public manifestation with the release of his first album, Show Us The Way Of The Heart.
