Event Details

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. David Wilcox believes that the right song at the right time changes people’s lives.

“David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey [is]… compelling and richly deserving of a listen.” -Rolling Stone

“A charismatic performance by a star still waiting to be discovered by a much larger audience.”


A portion of proceeds will go to fund Church of the Apostle's Haiti Missions Outreach.

Cleveland-born David Wilcox was inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell.  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.  He 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.  Now, 17 albums into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans, David continues to find and deliver joy, inspiration, and invention.

 

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.

 

Reflecting on well over 20 years of record-making and  touring extensively around the US and world, Wilcox says, “Music still stretches out before me like the head-lights of a car into the night.  It’s way beyond where I am, but it shows where I’m going.  I used to think that my goal was to catch up, but now I’m grateful that the music is always going to be way out in front to inspire me.”
