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.
It's an 'FUV Live triple bill as Nicole Atkins & The Sea, Eli 'Paperboy' Reed & The True Loves, AND surprise guest Dan Wilson take the stage at The Cutting Room in New York City, hosted by Rita Houston. [2/13/08]
