We first saw Chad play in Santa Fe at the Oxygen Bar in January of this year and absolutely fell in love with his passion, devotion, and incredible ability to uplift, inspire, and move the audience with his spiritual/devotional music. We’re excited to be confirming him for a full main stage set at UNIFY FEST 2016!
Mystic Minstrel, Chad Wilkins, is an American/Australian singer-songwriter bringing heart-songs that reveal a better way for a generation in transitional times on our planet! From his lively, progressive grooves, to his deeply prayerful chants, spanning many genres, Chad’s rootsy folk anthems carry themes of love, gratitude, risk, honour, and pure vibrant LIFE(!) – giving voice to our cry for spiritual transformation, harmony with the Earth, and hope for a bright future.
Touring extensively, Chad’s performance style is unique and spontaneous – whether performing solo, with his full band, or anywhere in between, he guides his listeners through an interactive journey ranging from dancing celebration to mindful meditation to sing-along declarations.
Chad released his first full-length album “Show Us The Way Of The Heart” in 2014, and in 2015 his most recent release “This New Ancient Paradigm”, featuring the single “Live Love”.
Past festival appearances in Australia include Uplift Festival and Byron Spirit Festival, and in the US: Peace Village, San Francisco International Arts, Love As Revolution, Mystic Rising, and yoga accompaniment at Beloved Festival. Headline tour history includes East Coast Australia, New Zealand, West Coast and South West USA.
