David Wilcox

A warm, baritone vocal tone and poetic lyricism are combined with a unique guitar style that blends soft jazz and folk sensibilities and an intimate stage persona by singer/songwriter David Wilcox. Often compared to James Taylor and John Martyn, Wilcox has built a solid fan base for his well-crafted folk-pop tunes.

Cleveland-born Wilcox was inspired to play guitar after watching a fellow student play in a stairwell at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, OH. Transferring to Warren Wilson College in Asheville, NC, in 1981, Wilcox began taking music seriously. Although he took four lessons with a classical guitarist, Wilcox developed most of his playing technique on his own. In addition to being inspired by Joni Mitchell to play in a variety of tunings, he designed a capo that produced an unusual sound by leaving one or more strings unaltered.

Wilcox strengthened his skills as a performer through regular appearances at an Asheville night club called McDibbs. His debut album, The Nightshift Watchman, was released in 1987 on his own label, Song of the Woods, and reissued in 1996 by Koch International; it featured scaled-down arrangements and launched Wilcox's career as a touring musician. After performing at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, Wilcox signed with A&M in 1989. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies by word of mouth. Wilcox subsequently recorded two other studio albums for the label -- Home Again in 1991 and Big Horizon in 1994. In 1991, the label released a six-song CD, Mostly Live: An Authorized Bootleg. East Asheville Hardware, Wilcox's first album after being dropped by A&M, featured live recordings of previously unreleased tunes including a version of Chuck Brodsky's satirical song "Blow 'Em Away."

His contract with A&M ended after four albums in 1994, but Wilcox has continued to share his love of music and his explorations of personal growth. His 1997 album Turning Point recorded in the log cabin studio in the woods behind his home, represented a shift to a more controlled approach to music, while his February 1999 release, Underneath, continued to focus on his vocals and guitar playing despite the additional instrumentation of electric guitars, keyboards, and rhythm section. Although his albums have featured diverse arrangements, Wilcox continues to perform in concert as a soloist. In August 2000, What You Whispered was released. A best-of collection followed the next year, released during his successful national tour. Due to his popularity, the demand for a live album became too great and he offered Live Songs and Stories in the summer of 2002. Into the Mystery appeared in 2003, followed by a joint effort with Nance Pettit, Out Beyond Ideas, in 2005, Vista in 2006 and Airstream in 2008. ~ Craig Harris

For the record: Warren Wilson College is in Swannanoa, NC, and McDibbs was in Black Mountain, NC - both 25-30 minutes east of Asheville, where I live. Loved seeing David perform at McDibbs in his early, formative days!

Saw David in a small venue this weekend in MA. First saw him 18 years ago and he is still amazing. His talent is endless.....

Saw David last night performing in Asheville. It was amazing. He's still got it! Loved that he had a personality as beautiful as his music, although that was no surprise. It was truly an awesome experience.

Not to be confused with the Canadian David Wilcox rock musician whose eyes, apparently, keep him in trouble. Appalachian David Wilcox is folkier.

I have to say that creating a station under D.W. not only yields his amazing sound, but a multitude of other great music as well. A David Wilcox station is a must for anyone who loves singer/songw r i t e r stuff.

David is not just an awesome musician but great person. Spent a week with him in AK at a guitar camp years ago and got to know him a little. The alternate tuinings, use of multiple capos, and mid song shifts in key make him one of a kind!

I enjoy every aspect of his music: Voice, writing, and muscianship. I wonder if he uses alternate tuning for some of these melodies. Although admittedly not a good player, I can't duplicate very many of his songs on guitar...

I have listened to his music most of my life. He is my favorite artist, I just love everything about his music, including the wonderful memories that come to me when I hear it. I have all his albums and have been to a couple of his performances . The man is amazing!!

I have heard of David before....bu t am just now listening to his music. It's awesome....g r e a t vocals, acoustic guitar and compelling lyrics. It's nice to know someone is making quality music in this era of meaningless, shallow music.

his "How Did You Find Me Here" is a perfect cd

Vista reminds me of a pic my son took in Tuscany, looking out the old window to see the beautiful countryside. Would so much like to see live. Blessed with a gift + hard work = joy for many. Keep on!!! (I still haven't seen or dined in Tuscany). David, his songs, and creativity are excellent.

What's even better is when he is in your home just performing- I've been with Dave a few times now and he's such an awesome person and performer. He did an unplugged concert for us staff at my camp for couple of summers in this tiny little building and you couldn't help but get chills listening to him play!

Go xperience David Wilcox live, if you evr have the chnce. Mrvelous live prfrmer as well as snger, sngwriter, gtarist. Tho' he's well knwn and sccssful, it's odd tht his fme and sccss hven't bn on an evn lrger scale. Probably prtly a testament to his integrity and fidelity to his own vision of not just music, but life in general. (Don't confuse him w. the Canadian David W., whose music is quite dfferent. Nthing agnst tht David-it's a big, divrse wrld w. room for lots of music, thnk gdnss).

I have been a huge fan of Wilcox for many years and have seen him perform numerous times. His wit and humor along with his charm in person only add to the experience of a David Wilcox performance. He's a must-see performer in my book!
