Wilhelm is a four member band formed in Iola, Wisconsin in September 2016. We play an eclectic mix of cover and original songs that span the genres of folk, indie, and rock. As a group with only four members, we fill large spaces with our vast instrumentation. More than anything, we want our music to inspire head bobbing, foot tapping, and loud sing-a-longs.


The name Wilhelm comes from the middle name of our high school band teacher who was, and still is, an avid lover of music in all its glorious forms. Despite moving on from the growing years of high school, we all still view our time with Mr. Jacob Wilhelm Martin as formative.


By the fall of 2018, all four members will be attending school at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, centered in a colorful hub of music appreciation. Wilhelm's debut EP will be released on June 30, 2018.


Thanks for being here and we hope to see you soon!
