Jonathan Wilson May be the Only Thing Erykah Badu and Jackson Browne Have in Common

At 39, Jonathan Wilson has already accomplished more than many people twice his age. As a musician, he has worked with everyone from Jackson Browne to Dallas' own Erykah Badu. Wilson has also produced recording sessions for the likes of Glen Campbell, Dawes and Father John Misty. And as a solo performer, Wilson has released four albums that creatively combine folk, country and psychedelic rock.

Speaking from a tour stop in Nashville and in anticipation of tonight's show at Dada, Wilson spoke with DC9 about his intriguing past and why he thinks his music has been better appreciated in Europe than in his home country.
