David Wilcox blazes a new trail with latest cd
Veteran folk singer-songwriter David Wilcox will be performing a Wisconsin-exclusive concert at the historic Thrasher Opera House in downtown Green Lake on Saturday, March 29 in support of his latest cd, blaze (February 2014). "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 ?xml:namespace>
David Wilcox is a true American treasure. He has sold over 750,000 discs and has been writing songs for 30 years. He is known for his open tuning acoustic guitar, sawed-off capos, storytelling wit, and insightful metaphors. His songs are a strong elixir. Music distilled. He believes that the right song at the right time changes people’s lives.
As one critic describes a recent Wilcox performance, "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
