Dan Wilson

Artist, Songwriter, Producer - "Someone Like You," "Not Ready to Make Nice," "Closing Time"
“Words & Music by Dan Wilson” is a master session on the creative process, inspiration, and songwriting.    Grammy-winning artist, songwriter, and producer Dan Wilson will discuss his insights, expanding on the songwriting and life advice clips he shares frequently via Instagram in his popular series "Words and Music in Six Seconds". What are the ground rules for collaboration? Bring compassion to a writing session. Teach yourself to finish. Don't "save" your ideas.  Wilson will also perform and tell the stories behind some of the modern-day classics he’s penned, both on his own and with collaborators.

Dan's long songwriting resume includes three modern classics: “Closing Time”, which he wrote for his band, Semisonic, “Not Ready to Make Nice” (co-written with Dixie Chicks) and “Someone Like You” (produced by Dan co-written with Adele). Since his time with Semisonic, Dan has released four solo albums and has written with and produced a diverse group of artists including Phantogram, Chris Stapleton,  Leon Bridges,  Halsey, John Legend, Dierks Bentley, My Morning Jacket, Noah Cyrus, Carole King, P!nk, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Taylor Swift, and many others. He recently produced Brett Dennen’s 2018 Let’s… in addition to co-writing much of the EP, and his other recent co-writes include the upcoming singles “Alone” (Halsey), “We’re and Going Home” (Vance Joy),  “Unfinished” (Noah Cyrus)
