Brandise plays Jonathan Wilson on Border Radio every Sunday 11am-1pm Pacific.
Jonathan Wilson released his debut album “Gentle Spirit” on September 13 on Bella Union. Released in August in the UK & Europe, “Gentle Spirit” has garnered a lot of attention from some of music’s leading, and perhaps most respected, media outlets, including MOJO & Uncut, both of whom gave the album 4 stars & ample attention.
“Gentle Spirit” is not simply the name of the debut solo album by songwriter/musician/producer, Jonathan Wilson, it represents the ethos of the artist himself. Warm, supple melodies etched in layers of stringed instruments and willowy organ motifs accompany his earnest, North Carolinian drawl as he tells tales of humane values lost and found.
The album was made specifically for Vinyl, which I find very cool. Given the popular culture’s preoccupation with all things digital, “Gentle Spirit” draws a line in the proverbial sand; the album was conceived for vinyl. “I would say vinyl is the only real tangible format that contains meaningful value and the only one you can sell to me that retains any value. And to me, that’s on both sides of the table, the consumer and the artist. Even as a record collector I’ve always been vinyl driven. With vinyl, this is when the record sounds the best and when it comes alive. To me, this project and the album represent many things tangible and even more things intangible, those that can only be felt.”
