David WilcoxDavid Wilcox has a way with words, a way with guitars, a way with singing that cuts through the junk and the gunk and gets straight to the essence. His original songs are beautiful, tender, witty, and deeply engaged with the complexities of living in a messy, imperfect world. For David, says the magazine Performing Songwriter, “music is a personal compass for finding his way home. Lining it up with something deep inside, his words become image-filled poetry that dances to an internal rhythm. Challenging situations, elusive ideas, and long-suppressed feelings are directed into inspiring metaphors.” His music combines the best of folk and pop, with clever wordplay and catchy melodies on the surface, and in the depths a fierce commitment to telling the truth.

David grew up outside Cleveland and decided to learn guitar in college when he heard someone playing in a stairwell. He released an independent album in 1987, won the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and signed with A&M Records in 1989. Since then, he’s released 16 albums, including his latest, Reverie, which the website allmusic praises for its “hushed, intimate vocals, subtle but impressive guitar work in a solid folk/blues/pop mode, and songs full of telling details presented with masterful wordplay that never calls attention to itself.” With his deft fingerpicking, flair for open tunings, and lucid baritone, he brings out all the richness in his extensive catalogue of insightful originals. He’s also an engaging story-teller and a natural entertainer who connects with the audience and delivers a sparkling show.
