“David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen.”
– Rolling Stone
Folk singer/songwriter David Wilcox’s lyrical insight is matched by a smooth baritone voice, virtuosic guitar chops, and creative open tunings, giving a range and tenderness in his music. Now, more than 20 albums into a career spanning over 30 years of touring extensively around the U.S. and the world, he continues to deliver joy, inspiration, and invention to his legions of fans. He was last in Rochester for Golden Link’s Turtle Hill Folk Festival in 2016.
Wilcox is a quintessential folk singer, telling stories full of heart, humor, and hope; substance, searching, and style. His innate sense of adventure and authenticity is why critics and colleagues alike have always praised not just his artistry, but his humanity as well.
A 1988 recipient of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Award, Wilcox signed with A&M Records in 1989, selling more than 100,000 copies of his A&M debut, How Did You Find Me Here.
His 2018 release, The View from the Edge, finds him delving into mental health, family legacies, spiritual contemplations, and topical concerns. The song “We Make the Way by Walking” also won him the Grand Prize in the 2018 USA Songwriting Contest.
“I think the coolest thing about this kind of music is that, if you listen to a night’s worth of music, you should know that person,” he explains. “If you’re hearing a performer sing all these songs, you should know not only where he gets his joy and what he loves, but you should know what pisses him off and what frightens him and what runs him off the rails, what takes him apart and what puts him back together.”
