David Wilcox on the James Taylor Comparisons: A Lot of People Don't Listen to the Words"

Thoughtful and meticulous, the songs of singer/songwriter David Wilcox belie their simple presentation. For the better part of three decades, Wilcox has been touring the States playing just about any coffee house that would have him. Wilcox hit his commercial peak with 1989's How Did You Find Me Here, but he has continued to release quality fare including 2009's wonderful Open Hand.

From his home in Asheville, North Carolina and in anticipation of tonight's show at Uncle Calvin's Coffee House, Wilcox spoke to DC9 about being compared to James Taylor and pretending to be a fortune teller at his merchandise table.
