David Wilcox is now 20 records into a career marked by brilliant guitar playing, stirring vocals, and masterful songwriting. His lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving him a range and tenderness rare in folk music. Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. His latest record, The View From the Edge (2018), is a collection of powerful new songs, many of which Wilcox has been performing at live shows for the past several years. It’s an album that reflects four years of thinking, writing, crafting, playing, and life. Considered a ‘songwriter’s songwriter,’ his songs have been covered by artists such as k.d. lang and many others. In addition to Wilcox’s writing prowess, his live performances hold audiences rapt with nothing more than a single guitar, thoroughly written songs, a fearless ability to mine the depths of human emotions of joy, sorrow, and everything in between. “David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen.” Rolling Stone Magazine
