Dan Wilson is a guitarist for whom music has been an integral part of life since his beginnings in gospel music. Since hearing a Wes Montgomery record in a relative’s basement, he has spent more than a decade honing his craft. His debut album, To Whom It May Concern was released in 2012 and is a product of an intense study of many different musical styles and concepts.
Dan has toured nationally and internationally with three-time Grammy nominated jazz organ legend Joey DeFrancesco. Dan’s composition, Who Shot John was featured on Joey’s 2015 release, Trip Mode. Dan can also be heard on the Grammy-nominated Project Freedom, by Joey Defrancesco & The People, released in 2017. In April of 2017, Dan joined legendary bassist Christian Mcbride’s Tip City.
In addition to touring with Joey DeFrancesco, he has enjoyed the honor of sharing the stage with many jazz greats including Eric Marienthal, Russell Malone, Les Mcann, Christian McBride, and Dave Stryker.
Dan teaches jazz guitar and theory private lessons and co-leads a group of world class musicians, called D.T.C, which features drummer David Throckmorton and Cliff Barnes.
Dan plays a Pat Martino Signature model.
