Dan Wilson

Dan Wilson - FUV Live - 2014

by Rita Houston

Since his Semisonic days, Dan Wilson has spent a lot of time co-writing and producing, earning hits with a long list of artists like The Dixie Chicks and Adele. It hasn't left a lot of space for solo work, but he’s finally followed up his 2007 debut, Free Life, with a brand new album. It’s called Love Without Fear and it’s out today. Dan recently stopped by Studio A to share some new songs, to talk about the new record, and to give us a heads up on what else he's been working on.

Six years post-Semisonic and a year after working on The Dixie Chicks' latest Grammy winner, Minnesotan songwriter Dan Wilson steps out front to release his solo debut, 'Free Life.' The melodic gifts he's shared with others shine right through on the tunes, and Dan and his band performed a few of them during an interview with host Rita Houston.

Former Semisonic frontman Dan Wilson moved from band life and co-writing to 'Free Life' and solo work for his recent album. During a return trip to WFUV he played a mix of material minus a band, and talked with Darren DeVivo about the record label and producer that influenced this recent batch of songs.
