Biography

The Bright Smoke is the project of musician and songwriter, Mia Wilson, and formerly included filmmaker, producer, and musician, Quincy Ledbetter, who has been named the ‘Project Cre8’ by Paramount Players and BET. While, Ledbetter goes down to Altanta to film his feature film with his million dollar budget, Wilson will keep the band alive and well.

On the haitus, Ledbetter says, “Last year I won the chance to make my first feature film with BET and Paramount Players. The great thing is that this is a life long dream come true. The not so great thing is that it will require me to take some time away from The Bright Smoke as I ramp up the production process. So, the great Mia Wilson will be hitting the stage to represent us on her own, but I know she’ll kill it!”

Constant collaborators for over 10 years, Wilson (guitar, vocals) and Ledbetter (guitar, bass) began The Bright Smoke in 2012 in Brooklyn as a solo performance project before quickly evolving into a full band with the addition of Karl Thomas (drums) in 2014 and solidifying their current line-up as a three piece touring act.

They have been profiled in Nylon, Ladygunn, Filter Magazine, The Deli, Baeble Music, Diffuser.fm,Impose, Curve, and New York Music Daily among others and have been described as “A beautifully eerie example of what music can sound like when it has no limitations (Diffuser.fm)” and “an instillation of despondent intrigue that creates a positive vibe with a twang of the gloomy (The Deli).”

Having played extensively throughout the U.S. and Canada in support of their releases, Late for War(2012), Virginia et. al. (2012), and Terrible Towns (2015), Wilson and Ledbetter took a break from performing live after their 2016/2017 Terrible Towns U.S. tour to head back into the studio to create what is set to be their most ambitious album to date.

The Bright Smoke will release Gross National Happiness their first studio album in 4 years on July 5, 2019.
