Raised in Edmonton, Canada, Wilroy takes R&B as his musical starting point. He’s now based in Liverpool, and cites influences ranging from hip-hop to electronic music and jazz. Recently selected by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Music talent discovery initiative Future Bubblers, and played on BBC Radio 6, 1Xtra, Worldwide FM & Bandcamp Weekly, 2019 looks to be a promising year for the producer. Mary Anne Hobbs also featured Wilroy in her BBC radioshow and was raving about his contemporary and cutting edge 'Molten, abstracted soul music’. Wilroy is supported by Help Musicians UK.
