Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist/ (Geoffrey Wilson).
JOff WilsOn is the original founder of the Bowery Boys. His previous bands include the Irthlings and the Fugitives.

Early in his career, JOff was tapped to open for main acts such as the Ramones, 999, the Only Ones and others. He also played guitar for N.YC. poet/artist Jim Carroll (Basketball Diaries) in the early 90′s, and later on tapped again to help out in bands with people such as Bobby Steele (the Undead/the Misfits), Bassist Sami Yaffa (Hanoi Rocks/N.Y. Dolls), Sax player Buddy Bowzer (N.Y. Dolls/Johnny Thunders), David Peel and the Lower East Side (Apple Records) as well as many other musical luminaries from the NY scene. He has shared the stage with blues greats Junior Wells and Joe Beard.

Joff with his pick up bands has created underground open mics, most notably at CBGB’s right before the club closed for good, fostering a strong support for other local talent. Joff is also a painter as well an actor for film/TV, and is very involved in the art scene of the Lower East Side.

Quote written by Frank DeBlase for Rochester City Newspaper:

“Local rock hero Joff is such an amazing songwriting talent. But moreover he was a mentor and teacher, always willing to share a riff, or the stage, with anyone. Whether it’s hosting an open mic, or sharing a gig, Wilson possesses a grace, humility, and sense of camaraderie we should all try better to attain”.

We hope you dig the new Single. More to come…
