David Wilcox has been an undeniable force in the contemporary folk music scene for the last fifteen years. Fueled by his unabashed songs of hope, his thoroughly engaging performances and warm baritone, David has fourteen recordings under his belt and feels like he's just hitting his stride.
In the course of this hour-long interview David stretches out and talks about the subjects dearest to his heart which include songwriting, but more pointedly he focuses in on his passion for communicating big ideas, his philosophy and the journey of the human spirit.
David performs two new songs that have yet to be released: "Three Brothers" which is a beautifully crafted parable about the conflict in the Middle East, and at the total opposite end of the spectrum: "Captain Wanker" which is a satirical take on what David identifies as his "shadow side." As expected, his execution is meticulously on-the-money and he delivers the songs as if there were more than just the two of us in the room.
So many of the music-related interviews focus on David's guitar pyrotechnics and open tunings. This podcast is a rare glimpse deeper into the heart of the songwriter and his muse.
