Editors’ Notes

Like its predecessor, Gentle Spirit, Fanfare is a love letter to Wilson's longhaired, denim-clad countercultural heroes of the early '70s. In fact, some of them (David Crosby, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne) appear on the album, and others (U.K. folk-rock legend Roy Harper) contribute to the songwriting. Recorded on analog gear—which channels the spirit of the aforementioned artists and the whole post-psychedelic hippie zeitgeist—and clocking in at 78 minutes, Fanfare is the ultimate headphone album for the modern era. While the multitalented Wilson played all the instruments on some tracks, everything here has an organic vibe; you can feel the air in the room where the record was made. As Wilson hops from orchestral majesty (the title track) to Crosby-esque folk ("Her Hair Is Growing Long"), sunny roots rock ("Love to Love"), and epic art rock ("Lovestrong"), he displays not only his passion for the sounds of the '70s but his mastery of them.

Customer Reviews

A song writer for our generation!

Wilson's tones, melodies and lyrical style reminds us of a lost art of song writing. With beautiful ballads, unapologetic guitar leads, rich and layered vocals, and least we not forget his haunting and beautifully crafted story telling.

The wait is over! See ya at the Troubadour and hopefully for anther Christmas event!

Jonathan Wilson was born in the mid-'70s, but his music most clearly recalls an era whose heyday came a few years before he came into the world; the deep but gentle vibe of his songs is an echo of the Laurel Canyon mellow rock scene of the late '60s and early '70s, and it's no surprise that he found a home in the very same section of California years after the fact. Wilson was born in Forest City, North Carolina on December 30, 1974. He grew up surrounded by music: his grandfather was a preacher...
