Update April 29, 2020:
Due to the current situation around Coronavirus the show of Jonathan Wilson has to be cancelled.
Here is a statement from Jonathan Wilson:
Due to all the unanswered questions still surrounding Covid-19 I have decided to cancel all tour dates that were previously going to be rescheduled in the coming months.
Once a vaccine or antibody test emerges or we get some clearer answers we can move forward and figure out how to bring the JW live experience to you, Nearly Nashville band, solo, or otherwise. I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I have been at home at the studio working on a bunch of new music and figuring out how to livestream at the highest audio fidelity and video quality, more to come soon!
love y'all, smooches!

Californian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Wilson announces his new album Dixie Blur for March 6th via Bella Union. Dixie Blur combines his typically complex music with native influences from Country, Bluegrass and Americana. Wilson's homesickness during his last tour with Roger Waters served as a source of inspiration for Dixie Blur. "Stuck out there in a hotel in Latvia, it's a long way from anything that feels like home or family. I felt I was subconsciously being led back to my roots. I still think of Carolina sometimes. I miss the family. I miss that feeling. I miss home," says Wilson about his home in North Carolina and his new music.
With the help of his friend Pat Sansone, who has worked with bands like Wilco, Wilson recorded a few songs for the long-awaited album at Sound Empowerium, one of Nashville's most famous recording studios. Jonathan was supported by Mark O'Connor (fiddle, guitar), Dennis Crouch (double bass) and six other musicians. The album was produced in six days and Wilson tells the following story: "It was so fast it was a blur. Hence the title, Dixie Blur. And there really is a magic that occurs when musicians play together in a room and create that one consistent thing in time, something is created by the collective energy that is impossible to recreate otherwise. It feels like another side, you know? Sort of like a personal, unplugged, just got off the road feeling. I think it's the most down to earth and emotional both musically and lyrically that I've ever been." Dixie Blur is the most personal album for Wilson so far, as his musical influences since childhood first appear and you get a little insight into what home feels like for him.
Jonathan Wilson has experienced a lot in his musical career so far: As a producer he has worked for well-known artists such as Lana Del Rey, Father John Misty and the folk legend Roy Harper as well as a guitarist for Roger Waters.
