Originally from rural Southern Indiana. Stephen Wilson began boxing when he was 7, and continued in Golden Gloves until he was 20. Fortunately for us, he decided there might be easier ways to make a living, so he moved to Tennessee to get a degree in Microbiology from Middle Tennessee State University. He then co-founded the legendary indie rock band AutoVaughn and toured with them for 5 years as lead guitarist and songwriter. Wilson later signed a publishing deal as a staff songwriter with BMG Nashville in Aug 2016, where he has been building his catalog, writing with notables such as Craig Wiseman, Brett James, Jeffrey Steele, Travis Meadows, Radney Foster, Tony Lane, Caitlyn Smith, Lucie Silvas, Wynn Varble, and Steve Bogard.
