David Wilcox in Concert

Cleveland-born David Wilcox is a father, a husband, a citizen and a songwriter. First inspired to play guitar after hearing a fellow college student playing in a stairwell, Wilcox is now 20 records into a career marked by personal revelation and wildly loyal fans. 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.

Wilcox 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. His latest record The View From the Edge (2018) is a collection of powerful new songs, many of which he has been performing at live shows for the past several years. Its an album that reflects four years of thinking, writing, crafting, playing and life.

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. In live performance, David loves making up a spontaneous song for an audience member in need.   Anyone who has seen Wilcox perform more than once or twice has seen him concoct one of his Musical Medicine songs on the spot, full of lyrical artistry and musical inventiveness, like some kind of uncanny parlor trick.

David Wilcox finds inspiration wherever he looks. The songs in turn provide inspiration to longtime listeners as well as those finding him for the first time. Its in the song and the craftsmanship; its medicine for the soul; its story; its a restless spirituality.

Whatever it is, it serves many purposes, even for the songwriter himself. All these songs are the blazes on the trail, the stuff I need to hear in order to remember on a daily basis, he says, acknowledging his own path. It would have been easier if I could have heard these songs 20 years ago, but that isn’t how it works. I had to live it to be able to sing it.

David Wilcox’s ongoing musical journey is compelling and richly deserving of a listen. Rolling Stone

Started in 1999, the One World Coffeehouse is an all-volunteer run outreach program of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Columbia (UUCC). Our goal is to build a sense of community by presenting an array of artistic and musical talent in a comfortable, family-friendly setting. Evening performances happen most 3rd Saturdays in a grand listening room with candle-lit tables. After paying the artists, all income benefits local folks in need through the charitable outreach of the UUCC.
More about the One World Coffeehouse concert series is on the UUCC website.
