John Wilson, producer, arranger, songwriter, film composer, recording artist and co-founding member of Sly Slick & Wicked who co-wrote Justin Timberlake’s #1 Hit “Suit & Tie” featuring Jay Z received The BMI Pop Music Songwriter Awards for the song at the 62nd Pop Awards recently. The evening recognizes the songwriters and publishers of the past year’s most-performed pop songs in the US from BMI’s repertoire of more than 8.5 million musical works.
Recently, John was featured in The Sax Man, a documentary film that captures the true
story of Maurice Reedus Jr, a street musician for the last two decades but a touring
musician long before that. His inspiring story culminated in this documentary, which
brought him back together with his old band, Sly, Slick, and Wicked.
