Meet the Act
Hello, my name is Neil Wilde and I can't remember not entertaining people. From a very early age my dad gave me a harmonica instead of a child’s dummy hoping it would create a musical interest. I was walking and talking at nine months old and I could actually play the harmonica by the time I was two. From being six years old I was taking violin lessons from my grandfather and by the time I was 11 I was going to Sunday school regular where I sang hymns and gospel songs as well as playing guitar. I was 13 years old when I found the piano, a life changing moment for me because that started
... a love affair that's been with me ever since. I still can't stay away from a piano for long. As a teenager 14/15 I spent most of my time at the piano I couldn't read music because of my dyslexia but I practiced eight hours a day and the piano became my best friend. The love for Rock'n'Roll and Boogie Woogie excited me. I also had a singing voice and I was writing some of my very first songs at this tender age.
By the time I was 16 years old I was on the road playing with a band called 20 Flight Rock (Rock’n’Roll band) and on my 17th birthday I was advertising for musicians to join my own band (Let The Good Time Roll). From 1976 to 1986 I worked professionally around the UK. I also completed two very successful Norwegian tours. From 1986 to 2004 I worked as a solo artist with session musicians on ships, oil platforms, theatres, festivals, dance halls, TV and Radio outside the UK I even had a record deal and a sponsorship with Yamaha Scandinavia. Unfortunately, due family health problems I came back to Yorkshire where I live to this day. I do still tour in Norway, Denmark, and Poland but I would like to work more in the UK.
