so glad this popped up in this forum. My wife and I watched the Lady Gaga doc on Netflix (pretty dang good) and I heard this amazing lil guitar melody in it, Shazam'd it and it was Desert Raven. I'd heard of Jonathan Wilson but never got around to putting any in my ears.

Would Gentle Spirit be a good place to start?

Gentle Spirit is a great place to start, and then I would quickly progress to Fanfare, which is fucking amazing. I don't know if anyone else combines vibes, chops and pristine production better than JW. He's also got a new album coming out shortly. His two EPs, Slide By and Pity Trials And Tomorrow's Child are essential too! The cover of "Angel" grooves for days. All his vinyl pressings are of marvellous quality.

In fact I don't think I can find one less than stellar thing to say about any of his releases since Gentle Spirit.

I've spent the last few months getting into Jonathan after seeing Dawes recommended Rare Birds and I'm absolutely in love with the guy! Just bought a ticket to see him in London at Shepard's Bush Empire, flying solo as I don't think any of my friends would appreciate his music. On the off chance anyone else is thinking of heading down I'd love some company haha, will be the first time I've been to the bush since MMJ in 2015!
