Music is my therapy says Donegal singer-songwriter Carol Wilson

Rathmullan-based singer-songwriter Carol Wilson whose debut single Trouble Me is out now

WHAT started as a cathartic release from the struggles of a difficult relationship has evolved into the debut single from Donegal singer-songwriter Carol Wilson.

Wilson, who is from Meenaleck in the north-west Donegal Gaeltacht, wrote her first song at age 16 to help heal the heartbreak of a teenage break-up and has channelled her emotions through the therapy of songwriting ever since.

However, it is only in the past four years that the mother-of-three has pursued her passion seriously and she now writes and produces her own material as well as creating the accompanying videos.

"Writing and singing have helped me overcome a lot of painful experiences," Wilson said as Trouble Me, the title track from her forthcoming album, was released. "It’s been my therapy and I've been writing non-stop over the past four years. It feels great to release my debut single and share my music with others."

Having completed a music production course at Full Tilt Studios in Letterkenny, Wilson creates her music from her own home studio in Rathmullan.
