David Wilcox and Connor Garvey open at the me&thee
Boston Globe - about 4 years
On Friday, March 15, the me&thee welcomes David Wilcox to our stage. Factor in a strong acoustic guitar technique that eschews simplistic strumming in favor of expressive finger-picking, and a pleasant voice that sounds like a more insistent, fuller bodied James Taylor, and you have David Wilcox, a solid solo- acoustic performer who is a big favorite on the circuit. Connor Garvey opens the show. He is the real deal and has been described as an “amazingly accomplished and mature songwriter” for a twenty-something.

Rachael Taylor On '666 Park Avenue,' Whoopi Goldberg And More!
Popeater - over 4 years
"666 Park Avenue" (Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC) debuted just last week, and viewers are already intrigued by the mystery behind an old New York City building and its residents. Rachael Taylor plays Jane Van Veen, the wife of Henry Martin (Dave Annable) and the two become co-managers of an old Upper East Side building called The Drake owned by Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams' characters Gavin and Olivia Doran. Jane and Henry quickly learn there's much more to the building than its beautiful architecture. Taylor spoke with HuffPost TV to discuss what to come in the series, the cast, and how excited she is to work with Whoopi Goldberg. So let's talk about the pilot. It's a fun pilot, right? And the cool thing is that we're not doing a procedural show. It's very serialized, so I think as it continues to unfold people will only become more intrigued by what can happen. It definitely seems like it's more of a psychological thriller. Will it get any more gory as t ...

'666 Park Avenue': Cast And Producers Preview 'A Different Kind Of Horror' At TCAs
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
If you take Terry O'Quinn and Vanessa Williams, add two devilishly villainous roles and a sprinkling of paranormal activity on the Upper East Side, it certainly sounds like a recipe for success. At least that's what ABC is hoping for with its new supernatural series "666 Park Avenue," which brought O'Quinn and Williams to the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour on Friday, along with co-stars Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable, and executive producers David Wilcox and Matthew Miller. "Lost" alum O'Quinn is no stranger to enigmatic roles, but his character Gavin Doran is a whole new breed of sinister -- so creepy that even John Locke might hesitate to tangle with him. As the owners of the luxurious Drake at 666 Park Avenue, Gavin and his wife Olivia (Williams) may seem charismatic, but they -- along with the building they inhabit -- are hiding an undeniable dark side. O'Quinn expressed his enthusiasm for playing "characters [with] a lot of secrets," while "Despera ...

Sgt. 1st Class David Wilcox is Moving On
Crystal Lake Patch - about 5 years
<a class="fplink fp-62142" href="/david+wilcox+american+musician">David Wilcox</a> said he’s not a talkative guy. When the U.S. Army ordered Wilcox to Crystal Lake four years ago for recruiting duty, he didn’t realize what a verbally exhausting job it would be, extolling to recruit candidates the benefits of serving one’s country. “I’m what you call a introvert,” said Wilcox, a sergeant first class in the Army’s Engineer Corps. “I wouldn’t ask you for a dollar. But when you’re a recruiter, you do a lot of asking. “This job helped me improve my talking skills.” Although he enjoyed his stay in Crystal Lake, he was looking forward to getting back to Army life, including getting up early, running and doing pushups with his unit before breakfast. What made Wilcox join the Army? Jobs were hard to find in the little town of Elkins, W. Va., where Wilcox grew up. “I wasn’t going to college,” Wilcox said. “My father told me to get out there and see the world. Joining the Arm ...

Another described him as a prolific songwriter and folk artist. Another wrote he "sings with a mellow fluency that suggests a hybrid of Mr. Taylor and Kenny Rankin, but he has better enunciation than either." Critics describe his voice as having a "warm, expressive" quality with an "engaging vocal style" and a "warm, baritone vocal tone." His music has been written as "deeply philosophical" and "insightful". One music critic wrote he was a "influential acoustic guitarist... the PBS darling of contemporary singer-songwriter folk."

Indeed, as steeped in romance as most popular music is, it rarely speaks directly to issues of loneliness, intimacy and commitment – let alone mortality and inner fortitude. Wilcox does this with sensitivity, analytic zeal and subtle emotional force."
