Critically acclaimed artist, producer and musician Jonathan Wilson has had a busy few years, producing records for Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, Karen Elson, and Dawes. He also spent much of 2017 and 2018 on the road supporting his most recent album Rare Birds as well as performing alongside Roger Waters as vocalist/lead guitarist during the epic, worldwide Us + Them tour. Rare Birds is Wilson’s third solo album and featured special guest contributions from Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty and Lucius and Brian Eno collaborator Laraaji. Born and raised in North Carolina, Wilson spend years in Los Angeles, where his did much of his work. When he took a break from the road late last year, he packed up his studio and went Nashville with 20 new songs in tow. He recruited revered musicians that included Mark O’Connor, Kenny Vaughan, Jim Hoke, Dennis Crouch, Russ Pahl, Pat Sansone, and Jon Radford to record the new material. The result is an album unlike anything Wilson has recorded before, inspired by the region he spent his formative years immersed in. Look for the new music in 2020.
