Robert Wilson Guitarist/Composer Robert Wilson is a guitarist of over twenty years of experience in various genres of music. A native of Plattsburgh, NY, Robert helped to form his first band while attending SUNY Plattsburgh. The Empty Bottles Blues Band performed in Northern New York for two years and recorded one album before disbanding in 1996. In summer 1997 Robert relocated to Charlotte, NC with the intent of making inroads into the burgeoning city's music scene. He co-led the R&B band Bleuphoria with bassist Jim Guyett. After many personnel changes and performances, Bleuphoria disbanded in 2000. It was in 2000 that Robert stopped performing to concentrate on jazz studies. In 2007 Robert decided to start performing again. He formed the Robert Wilson Trio with Jim Guyett and Terry Lindsay and began to appear at local venues in the Charlotte and surrounding area including The Inn at Baxter and The Palmetto Room. At the same time the trio held down a weekly gig at Vintner Wine Market. Although primarily a jazz player now, Robert has extensive knowledge and experience in Blues and R&B, Rock, Reggae, Brazilian, Folk and Country music. He held down the guitar chair in the PSUC Jazz Ensemble in 1995. He has attended master classes and performed for Gene Bertoncini. He has studied under Dr. Marshall Onofrio, Ian MacDougall and Joe Capps.
Justin Molsbee Pianist Justin Molsbee has been studying and performing jazz since he was sixteen years old. After listening to some Jean-Luc Ponty and Chick Corea albums lent to him by his High School math teacher, he fell in love with the idea of blending his favorite rock sounds with jazz. After graduating early from Lake Forest High School in Illinois, he graciously accepted a scholarship to The College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University, in Chicago, Illinois. After two years of studying undergraduate music theory, Justin decided to teach and went on to The American Conservatory of Music (right down the street) to study Pedagogy and Music History. This is where his classical studies began. Discovering how pianists like Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett were influenced by composers such as Bartok, Bach, Mozart, among many others. And, how both held the ability and discipline to play Mozart piano concerti and Bach Preludes & Fugues with seeming ease, Justin felt it was necessary to pursue the study of classical music as well. After two years at the Conservatory, Justin began to teach privately and perform solo piano for both public and private events. Since that time, Justin has been in several ensembles throughout the Chicago area and now in Charlotte, North Carolina. He continues to teach and play solo piano while playing with three different groups here in North Carolina.
Terry Lindsay Percussionist Terry Lindsay has been drumming for over two decades -- since he was a young boy, influenced by everything from R&B, to Rock, to Jazz and even some of the most sophisticated Jazz Fusion. His professional playing started after high school. His high school band, Wavelength, was picked up by a local talent agency. Over the years, they played up and down the East Coast, and all the way out to Las Vegas. Time and miles eventually wore all of them down. So they decided to go their separate ways. Terry went back home to Pittsburgh, enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh, and started playing the local jazz clubs, studying with local jazz drummers, and performing jingles and other studio work. Terry moved here to the Queen City about four years ago, with the hope of finding a vehicle to create something special and unique to Charlotte. He considers himself honored to be in Good Company, as an integral part of their unique, elegant sound.
