David Wilcox is a brilliant song writer, a great singer, and one of the hottest guitar players in the world. He first made his name as a wild, live performer and then as a first-rate recording artist whose work, from "Out Of The Woods" (1980) to his last solo release, "Boy In The Boat" (2007), stands the test of time.
After almost thirty years in the business - including extensive touring, 5 gold & platinum albums, numerous awards, and winning fans everywhere - it's no stretch to say that David Wilcox deserves icon status. His life in music is the stuff of legend.
With the release of David's superb 2007 CD, "Boy In The Boat" his music has come full circle. It's a daring mix of diverse roots influences coupled with his remarkable style. The result? Something not only original but steeped in the raw funky tradition his fans have come to know and love. Tough but soulful; cool but passionate - the music keeps growing without losing its fiery edge. "I wanted to make a record as freely as possible. My first albums were done with no 'adult supervision'; no concerns with current trends or 'marketing', just a group of people making music for the pure joy of it. With this one, we took that approach." David and three other Telecaster Masters, James Burton, Albert Lee and Amos Garrett met during the Vancouver Island Music Festival in 2013 and on July 12th they played a historic concert that was recorded - the result is the extraordinary Stony Plain album, Guitar Heroes Making History released in 2015.
