“Words & Music by Dan Wilson” is an evening of songs and stories which pulls back the curtain on the art of songwriting. Between stripped down renditions of some modern-day classics he has written on his own and with collaborators including Adele, Dixie Chicks and Carole King, Grammy winning singer-songwriter and producer Dan Wilson shares his insights into writing and tells the stories behind the songs, including some of his most successful collaborations.

Dan's long songwriting resume includes three modern classics: “Closing Time”, which he wrote for his band, Semisonic, “Not Ready to Make Nice” (co-written with Dixie Chicks) and “Someone Like You” (co-written with Adele). Prior to his time with Semisonic, he was a member of the band Trip Shakespeare, whose long-haired psychedelia influenced a generation of Midwestern bands long after their breakup in the early 90s.

Since Semisonic, Dan has released three solo albums and has become a highly sought-after songwriting collaborator, perhaps due to his slow-drip brew of philosophic and artistic seriousness, dry Midwestern humor (well-known to his live audiences,) and songwriting, performing, and production skills. He has written with and produced a diverse group of artists including Phantogram, Chris Stapleton, John Legend, The Head & The Heart, Cold War Kids, Dierks Bentley, My Morning Jacket, Keith Urban, Carol King, Spoon, P!nk, Taylor Swift, and many others.

On August 4, 2017, Dan will release his fourth solo album Re-Covered, a collection of his reinterpretations of songs he wrote for and with other artists.
