‘Winter’s Come’ is a fresh seasonal song combining the talents of writing partners Olivia Flenley and Max Wilson. Sharing a love for music from the bygone ages, Flenley and Wilson set out to create a winter-themed song with just a hint of Christmas about it. Here is a song with a timeless quality; it could perhaps have been written back in the days of Irving Berlin and Cole Porter. As well as composing the song, the music was performed and produced by the duo. It is no surprise when looking at their combined CV of classical composition, jazz performance, folk, production music credits, and several incidental scores for theatre productions. Wilson has also had his work synced to many television productions across the world. Credits include: BBC Horizon, BBC Natural World, Top Gear, Sky Box Office, Ghost Whisperer, America’s Most Wanted.
Wilson cut his teeth as a jazz pianist in piano bars in his home town, Glasgow, before moving to London to pursue a career as a composer. His music has been heard all over the world at concert halls, the theatre, and on film, radio and television. In addition to this, he continues to play the piano professionally, frequently performing with Cathal Smyth, aka Chas Smash from Madness.
‘Winter’s come’ brings Wilson back to his jazz roots whilst giving him an opportunity to collaborate with Flenley’s unique songwriting and sound.
