About the event
Chris Wilcox is a singer songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Born and raised in Baltimore, MD and having lived five years in Charleston, SC, Chris’s musical influence has no boundaries. His upcoming release, “Legacy”, displays his unique sound, blending his East Coast roots with his Southern experience as an artist. This release is a reborn project for Wilcox as the songs outline a lot the last few years of his life. From the passing of his father, to leaving Charleston for Nashville, Wilcox holds nothing back in his most honest work yet.
His latest release, “Old Shore Troubadour,” is a direct response to this increased time on the road.
While songs about the road aren’t a new concept, Chris turns the trope on its head, instead choosing to focus on the brief stops in his hometown. These fleeting moments take on a new meaning in the midst of a weeks-long tour. Conversations with family are cut short, friends greet a tired version of you, not fully understanding that while it always feels great to be home, there is another night, just like this one a day & drive away. Despite exploring this disconnect, Chris maintains his trademark optimism choosing instead to focus on the loved ones that wait at his new home in Nashville. Old Shore is perhaps the strongest exemplar of Chris’s appeal as a songwriter, that through all of the adversity he still manages to ask his trademark phrase “Why, Struggle?”
Recorded at Echo Mountain Run Asheville (Band of Horses, Susto, Manchester Orchestra) the stellar sound of the studio is amplified by keen mixing from drummer/producer Matt Zutell, who deftly explores modern filters while still maintaining a classic Americana sound captured so thoroughly in one of America's iconic studios.Why Struggle?
