Debut Solo Album From Former Muscadine Leader, Jonathan Wilson to be Released


NEW YORK, NY - KOCH Records is scheduled to release “Frankie Ray,” the debut album from singer songwriter, Jonathan Wilson, on June 26th, 2007.

Wilson has been traveling and recording in Georgia, New York and now the canyons of California. “Frankie Ray” is a 16 track collection that evokes the spirit of Nick Drake, Alex Chilton and Gram Parsons. And as Wilson explains it, “I live to elude the sonic spectrum, play tricks on it, duck and move...stay on my feet and let the frequencies collide.”

Wilson’s recently toured and played with Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Vetiver, Jenny Lewis, The Elected, The Autumn Defense, Bert Jansch and spent time on the road with John Stirratt and Pat Sansone from Wilco.

SPIN has already praised Jonathan stating, “Wilson plays softly, haunting acoustic ballads that evoke the spirit of Jeff Buckley.” Friend and collaborator Chris Robinson also comments, “This is sweet music for your mind and soul as you traverse the Red Road.”

Wilson, formerly with the band Muscadine, has also been busy recording not only his own work, but also collaborating with Chris Robinson (for the latter’s new solo album as well as for the new Black Crowes’ album) and Gary Louris of The Jayhawks.
