Notable Quotes from across the years:

Paste Magazine

"Folkin Great'
San Francisco Bay Guardian

"A charismatic performance by a star still waiting to be discovered by a much larger audience"
The New York Times

For David Wilcox, music is a personal compass for finding his way home.  Lining it up with something deep inside, his words become image-filled poetry that dance to an internal rhythm.  Challenging situations, elusive ideas, and long-suppressed feelings are directed into inspiring metaphors of hope.  Coupled with a seamless melody, it is all delivered in the language of his heart.
Performing Songwriter

Fueled by brilliantly articulate guitar, an honestly pretty baritone, and deft lyrics, he combines the best of both pop and modern folk aesthetics.
Boston Globe

David Wilcox's ongoing musical journey [is]... compelling and richly deserving of a listen.
Rolling Stone

Factor in a strong acoustic guitar technique that eschews simplistic strumming in favor of expressive finger-picking, and a pleasant voice that sounds like a more insistent, fuller bodied James Taylor, and you have a solid solo- acoustic performer who will make his way even if he doesn't serve ear candy.
Los Angeles Times

But Wilcox has that specific inner light - he can carry any issue of significance to him straight into a listeners heart... And when he does it, to borrow one of his song titles, he makes it look easy.
LA Weekly

The concert was an incredibly cleansing experience.  Songs with passionate, beautiful lyrics sung in a soulful voice, backed by crisp acoustic guitar arrangements that took me on an emotional roller-coaster ride (I know, kind of sounds like a wine steward describing a fine Burgundy, right?)
