PRESS:

For any singer-songwriter to be able to muster passion, hope and grace after 15 years in the unsung folk genre is an accomplishment, and as such, David Wilcox is infinitely accomplished.
Paste Magazine

A charismatic performance by a star still waiting to be discovered by a much larger audience
The New York Times

Fueled by brilliantly articulate guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, he combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics.
Boston Globe

Factor in a strong acoustic guitar technique that eschews simplistic strumming in favor of expressive finger-picking, and a pleasant voice that sounds like a more insistent, fuller bodied James Taylor, and you have a solid solo- acoustic performer who will make his way even if he doesnt serve ear candy.
Los Angeles Times

The concert was an incredibly cleansing experience. Songs with passionate, beautiful lyrics sung in a soulful voice, backed by crisp acoustic guitar arrangements that took me on an emotional roller-coaster ride (I know, kind of sounds like a wine steward describing a fine Burgundy, right?)
Kevin Nealon in Spin Magazine

For David Wilcox, music is a personal compass for finding his way home. Lining it up with something deep inside, his words become image-filled poetry that dance to an internal rhythm. Challenging situations, elusive ideas, and long-suppressed feelings are directed into inspiring metaphors of hope. Coupled with a seamless melody, it is all delivered in the language of his heart.
Performing Songwriter

David Wilcoxs ongoing musical journey [is]... compelling and richly deserving of a listen.
Rolling Stone

But Wilcox has that specific inner light - he can carry any issue of significance to him straight into a listeners heart... And when he does it, to borrow one of his song titles, he makes it look easy.
LA Weekly


ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 20 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. 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 he has been performing at live shows for the past several years. Its 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 his writing prowess, his skills as a performer and storyteller are unmatched.  He holds 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, and all tempered by a quick and wry wit. In live performance, David loves making up a spontaneous song for an audience member in need.   Anyone who has seen Wilcox perform more than once or twice has seen him concoct one of his Musical Medicine songs on the spot, full of lyrical artistry and musical inventiveness, like some kind of uncanny parlor trick.

David Wilcox finds inspiration wherever he looks. The songs in turn provide inspiration to longtime listeners as well as those finding him for the first time. Its in the song and the craftsmanship; its medicine for the soul; its story; its a restless spirituality.

Whatever it is, it serves many purposes, even for the songwriter himself. All these songs are the blazes on the trail, the stuff I need to hear in order to remember on a daily basis, he says, acknowledging his own path. It would have been easier if I could have heard these songs 20 years ago, but that isnt how it works. I had to live it to be able to sing it.

David Wilcoxs ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen. Rolling Stone
