Mauch Chunk Opera House
Singer-Songwriter, David Wilcox will perform Friday, June 10, at the Mauch Chunk Opera House, at 14 W. Broadway in Jim Thorpe.
"I write like my life depends on it." said Wilox.
He has sold over 750,000 discs and has been writing songs for 30 years.
Wilcox's music is distilled in a solid folk/blues/pop mode. He believes that the right song at the right time changes people's lives.
Wilcox sings with a mellow fluency that suggests James Taylor and the late Nick Drake.
Wilcox is now touring and performing selections from his upcoming Reverie CD, including cuts like "Angeline" and "Dynamite in the Distance."
Wilcox is known for his open tuning acoustic guitar, sawed-off capos, storytelling wit, and insightful metaphors.
"I expect a lot from a song," he said. "Picture those rows of huge radio antennas out in the southwest desert. All those ears listening deeply and far away. Music is like that for me, an antenna...a way to amp up the signal from this beautiful love ripping at my heart."
