About Jonathan Wilson
Downtown Records is set to release Jonathan Wilson’s Fanfare on October 15. In anticipation of the release, Paste is premiering the album track “Love to Love” at http://bit.ly/1dqkF6Z. Fanfare features vocal and instrumental contributions from Graham Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), Wilco’s Patrick Sansone, and Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, as well as Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Fanfare follows the success of Jonathan Wilson’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut Gentle Spirit, which was hailed by SPIN as “intricately produced and gently epic” and praised by Rolling Stone for its “gorgeously detailed folk-rock ambles. ” The Fanfare track “Dear Friend” is also available to be streamed and shared on Soundcloud at http://bit.ly/1ckvXcA.
Jonathan Wilson recorded Fanfare with engineer Bryce Gonzales over a nine-month period at Wilson’s Fivestar Studios in Echo Park. British folk legend Roy Harper co-wrote several of the songs on the album, which also features Wilson’s regular band members, Richard Gowen (drums), Dan Horne (bass), Omar Velasco (guitar) and Jason Borger (piano/organ). “There is a high degree of musical prowess and pedigree here. Cross-generational musical sharing and passing down traditions is very important to me and something that must continue, ” Wilson says. “This is the way you keep the fanfares blowing. This is how you keep the energies interacting. ” The band is set to perform at Newport Presents Way Over Yonder in Santa Monica on October 6 and The Chapel in San Francisco on November 1.
