Jonathan Wilson - Rare Birds
Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter / multi- instrumentalist / producer Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Karen Elson, Conor Oberst), returns with his third solo release.
The ambitious ‘maximalist’ album, titled ‘Rare Birds’, is released on Bella Union and features contributions from Father John Misty, Lucius, Lana Del Rey and New Age music legend Laraaji.
A highly sought after record producer, North Carolina native Wilson had a busy 2017 producing Father John Misty’s Grammy nominated ‘Pure Comedy’ and touring arenas around the globe as a guitarist and vocalist for Pink Floyd legend Roger Waters (for whom he also contributed to the also Grammy nominated ‘Is This The Life We Really Want?’ album).
Wilson also saw widespread acclaim heaped on Karen Elson’s sophomore album ‘Double Roses’, which he recorded with her in Los Angeles in 2016. 2018 looks to be even more active as he’ll be continuing on with the worldwide Waters tour, releasing ‘Rare Birds’ and completing a headline US and Europe tour in the spring.
