Wilcox released an independent album in 1987, was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk award in 1988, and by 1989 he had signed with A&M Records. His first release on the label, How Did You Find Me Here, sold over 100,000 copies the first year largely by word of mouth. His latest record The View From the Edge (2018) is a collection of powerful new songs, many of which he has been performing at live shows for the past several years. It’s an album that reflects four years of thinking, writing, crafting, playing and life. In recognition of this new release, David Wilcox was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 USA Songwriting Contest.
PERSONAL NOTE: Poor David brought David Wilcox to Dallas first, in the late eighties, to the only house concert he's ever had at his house. He did so because he had another act booked at the club and he wanted to be the first one to introduce Wilcox to Dallas.
