Amber Wilson Aberdeen Singer Morcheeba Band


Biography of Aberdeen singer Amber Wilson who is the lead singer of the band Morcheeba:


Amber Wilson is a singer, songwriter and guitarist from Aberdeen, Scotland. From her teens she played locally in bars and clubs throughout Aberdeen City and sang live on stage at Free At The Dee 2006.


In 2007 Amber Wilson was playing her acoustic guitar music at a local gig and her music was appreciated by some musicians who were performing with Amy Macdonald. Later in the week she received an e-mail from one of the musicians who had seen her Aberdeen performance asking if she would like to audition for the band Morcheeba as the lead singer because their current singer had recently left the band to start a family.

I have published a book which tells the story of an Aberdonian military nurse who returns from Afghanistan and encounters The Grey Lady Ghost of the Cambridge Military Hospital. The novel reveals her origins and takes him to a pre-war Duthie Park, modern day Cruden Bay and back to the past to the Battle of Loos in World War One where he witnesses the Gordon Highlanders in action. This is the first in the series of Grey and Scarlet Novels by me, CG Buswell, and each book will feature a well known Aberdeen ghost and Aberdeenshire area as well as modern Scottish Infantry in action. Read the first chapter for free.




Amber Wilson impressed the rest of the Morcheeba band members with her audition performance and was invited to join them on their European tour. In July 2007 she joined the Morcheeba band singing in Romania and to a crowd of 16000 at the B'Estival in Bucharest. Amber Wilson and Morcheeba have also performed at the GuilFest in Surry, England and in Belgium, Hungary, Lithuania, Spain and Switzerland. A great break for an Aberdonian lassie who was working as a waitress in an Aberdeen coffee shop.

As a soloist Amber Wilson has also played various Scottish music festivals such as the Go Dundee festival and Go North

In May 2007 Amber Wilson recorded a solo album. It is available to buy at One-Up Records in Aberdeen.

Amber Wilson has received an ATOM award from the PRS foundation.
