Today I’m introducing you to The Quiet One, or Amber Wilson as her real name is, and the track PM. Amber comes from Aberdeen, Scotland and started singing and writing song at the age of seven. She studied sound production at the college in Aberdeen, and later moved to London to become a session vocalist. She is also part of the band OK Button.
The track PM was released as a single on the 29th of July, 2020. The debut album will be released next year.
Tell us something about your track PM!
While releasing music with OK Button is a lot of fun – our songs are very produced and the process between writing and releasing has typically been long and complicated. ‘The Quiet One’ is the opposite – it’s raw and low-fi, I can express myself freely and authentically which is liberating.
My journey with piano began in 2012 – I lost my voice after a traumatic incident and turned to piano during my recovery. It’s such a beautiful, cathartic instrument to play, I found it very healing. PM is the first piece I wrote during this time. I had a loose concept, but it was mainly stream of consciousness. I wanted to capture something organic and real. The piece channels a lot I couldn’t express with words – including the unexpected passing of a dear friend, but the resolve at the end makes peace with the sadness. “Goodbye, I love you.”
Thank you very much for this lovely piece Amber!
