New From Guitarist Dan Wilson, “Things Eternal”



“Things Eternal” is a beautiful album showcasing the depth of Dan Wilson’s emotive guitar work. 

Akron, Ohio-based guitarist Dan Wilson shares the first single, “Sticology,” from his forthcoming album. Things Eternal is Wilson’s second album with Brother Mister Productions, his mentor Christian McBride’s imprint under the Mack Avenue Music Group umbrella, following 2021’s Vessels of Wood and Earth. McBride also served as co-producer on the project. Immediately following the release of “Sticology” and continuing through to the Fall, Wilson and his trio embark on an extensive run of North American dates performing in venues and at jazz festivals across the country. Things Eternal will be available everywhere on May 19th.

The album kicks off with a vibrant cover of “Sticology.” Wilson chose this song for the project specifically as he feels it is a regional treasure. “It contains everything that I like about music: a driving bass line, a singable melody and well-structured harmony. We had a chance to develop this arrangement over multiple performances last summer, and this recording represents the culmination of that time spent on the road. I have great respect and admiration for Phillip Jones, the composer who wrote the song when he was just 17 years old. The song is considered a classic in my hometown in Northeast Ohio, and I want to share it with whoever will listen.”
