Quotes from the Press

For any singer-songwriter to be able to muster passion, hope and grace after 15 years in the unsung folk genre is an accomplishment, and as such, David Wilcox is infinitely accomplished.
— Paste Magazine
A charismatic performance by a star still waiting to be discovered by a much larger audience
— The New York Times
Fueled by brilliantly articulate guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, he combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics.
— Boston Globe
Factor in a strong acoustic guitar technique that eschews simplistic strumming in favor of expressive finger-picking, and a pleasant voice that sounds like a more insistent, fuller bodied James Taylor, and you have a solid solo- acoustic performer who will make his way even if he doesn’t serve ear candy.
— Los Angeles Times
The concert was an incredibly cleansing experience. Songs with passionate, beautiful lyrics sung in a soulful voice, backed by crisp acoustic guitar arrangements that took me on an emotional roller-coaster ride (I know, kind of sounds like a wine steward describing a fine Burgundy, right?)

For David Wilcox, music is a personal compass for finding his way home. Lining it up with something deep inside, his words become image-filled poetry that dance to an internal rhythm. Challenging situations, elusive ideas, and long-suppressed feelings are directed into inspiring metaphors of hope. Coupled with a seamless melody, it is all delivered in the language of his heart.
— Performing Songwriter
David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey [is]... compelling and richly deserving of a listen.
— Rolling Stone
But Wilcox has that specific inner light - he can carry any issue of significance to him straight into a listeners heart... And when he does it, to borrow one of his song titles, he makes it look easy.

The Whittier Shannon center, October 11th, 2014. What a wonderful night. I’d like to be real clear, and honest. It was a night of miracles. Like you sang, every things Holy. It was a holy night. I an going to send you the blog where my friend Diana was “hoping” to come to your concert, something she was leaning into living for. It wouldn’t have been so incredible if I hadn’t been in the hospital with her just 2 weeks ago when the gals from hospice came in to tell her to get her affairs in order.
Thanks again, you were a tonic, long before you came to Whittier! I would like to add she has been in bed since she came home from the hospital, with only a few times of getting up…and that in just the last few days. Your concert was her first outing.
— Chris and Susan Logie
Thanks for all your great music. I’m in your debt
— John
Saw the concert at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek tonight... it was not a concert, it was an EXPERIENCE in the highest sense of the word. It was sacred and joyful and fun and I needed that. THANK YOU!
— Deena
David, Can’t tell you in words how you have inspired me over the years to be a better person. Your words and music say what I feel in my heart but am unable to say. You speak to my heart in such a personal way. I am now at a point in my life where I am trying to downsize many of my possessions to include most of my entire CD collection. However, I couldn’t bear to part with yours. Your CD’s are now my entire CD collection.....and now I have all that I need.

About David Wilcox, whom I was introduced to last night at Natasha’s Bistro in Lexington KY — if you don’t know him — WHAT A TALENT! He will take you for a ride into his stories and songs with his James Taylor-sounding voice and expertly played guitar, his brilliant, idiosyncratic yet beautifully crafted songs, his poignant storytelling that sometimes seems like standup comedy, and soon you may find yourself awash in your own inner sea of memories, hopes, secrets, little victories, grand visions, and human yearnings. A fun night in every way!!

I just wanted to say Thank you to David for the gift of music that he shares with the world. Over the last few years of my life it has felt like a beacon when I’m lost at sea. I have been to shows across the US and each time the music has met me right where I was, for that I am so appreciative. Thank you David for the work you have done in your own life and the ability to transfer it so others souls can hear.
— Sarah
Great performance last night....Inspiring and thought provoking, not to mention fun and humorous. Reminded me that I do have a heart no matter how broken, I can love again. Your love of what you are doing also hit home as I do love what do even through some difficult times.

I was at the concert in Ephrata, PA on Saturday night. I have been a fan since college (early 90’s). Thank you for a wonderful night. Thank you for your words, your music, your heart and your light.
