Jaimie Wilson is primarily known for his instagram page (@tboy61915) for documenting his FEMALE to MALE transition. with transitioning comes vocal changes that Jaimie has learned to not just accept, but embrace with his music. Music was never a stranger to Jaimie’s life. His mother, Cheryl Wilson, is well known locally for her musical talents in singing and songwriting. At an early age Jaimie found himself alongside his mother singing, sharing the musical passion that seems to run in the family.
He started playing piano at the age of four, and progressing further with music by picking up the flute in early middle school. However, at the time, music was not Jaimie’s main focus. Jaimie was raised on a family owned farm and this environment encouraged his participation in the horse showing community. By the age of fifteen Jaimie had already received copious amounts of awards and accolades. It was at this age that his mother decided to hand down a guitar that had gone untouched for years. Unbeknownst to Cheryl, she had opened up a whole new world for Jaimie.
In merely a couple of days, Jaimie had familiarized himself with every string and every fret of the guitar. He began to turn single notes into chords, which gave him the ability to accompany his vocals. Because he is self-taught on guitar, Jaimie created his own direction with his music, this only fed his creativity that would soon lead to his composition of original work. Jaimie’s roots of country and gospel music are found in his early written melodies, but as time went on Jaimie began to acquire a music taste for each and every genre, thus resulting in a diverse music repertory that is relatable and enjoyed by many. Because music is not just a pastime, but instead a manner of life for Jaimie, his heart and soul for music is well articulated in every song he sings.
Real life experiences and emotions help to shape Jaimie’s songs. He strongly credits his well-rounded family and lifestyle as a fundamental attribution to his unique way of song structure and writing, both melodically and lyrically. It is clear to see all of the qualities and talents he possesses. His most valuable quality is not one that can be seen, but rather heard as he expresses his feelings through song. Jaimie lives and breathes music. It’s his escape. His dream. His life.
