“[Jonathan Wilson] brings back idyllic, delicately shaded landscapes and atmospheres that
encourage the mind to wander.”—NPR
Downtown Records is set to release Jonathan Wilson’s Fanfare on October 15. In
anticipation of the release, Paste is premiering the album track “Love to Love” at Fanfare features vocal and instrumental contributions from Graham
Nash, David Crosby, Jackson Browne, Josh Tillman (aka Father John Misty), Wilco’s
Patrick Sansone, and Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith, as well as Mike Campbell and Benmont
Tench from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. Fanfare follows the success of Jonathan
Wilson’s critically acclaimed 2011 debut Gentle Spirit, which was hailed by SPIN as “intricately
produced and gently epic” and praised by Rolling Stone for its “gorgeously detailed folk-rock
ambles.” The Fanfare track “Dear Friend” is also available to be streamed and shared on
Soundcloud at
Jonathan Wilson recorded Fanfare with engineer Bryce Gonzales over a nine-month period at
Wilson’s Fivestar Studios in Echo Park. British folk legend Roy Harper co-wrote several of the
songs on the album, which also features Wilson’s regular band members, Richard Gowen
(drums), Dan Horne (bass), Omar Velasco (guitar) and Jason Borger (piano/organ). “There is
a high degree of musical prowess and pedigree here. Cross-generational musical sharing and
passing down traditions is very important to me and something that must continue,” Wilson says.
“This is the way you keep the fanfares blowing. This is how you keep the energies interacting.”
The band is set to perform at Newport Presents Way Over Yonder in Santa Monica on
October 6, The Chapel in San Francisco on November 1 and the Troubadour in West
Hollywood on November 7.
Born and raised in North Carolina and now based in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los
Angeles, Jonathan Wilson arrived in Laurel Canyon in 2005 and is credited with helping to
revive the neighborhood’s once-legendary music scene. As a sought-after producer, Wilson’s
recent work includes albums by Father John Misty and Dawes.
Jenny O - (Set time: 9:00 PM)

“These aren’t necessarily the songs I wanted to write, but they were the ones I had to write,” Jenny O. says of the material that became Peace & Information, her sophomore record and the second she’s collaborated on with producer Jonathan Wilson (Father John Misty, Conor Oberst, Dawes).

“I had a difficult year or two, so I wrote my way out of it.” This difficult chapter included challenging romantic relationships, a move from L.A. to Nashville, depression, trauma, a resulting case of PTSD, and a lot of inward work, not necessarily in that order. These experiences resulted in a group of songs that take the listener on a journey that culminates in insights about increased intuition, the pursuit of self-actualization, and taking back one’s personal power.

Jenny began making simple recordings on her father's reel-to-reel tape machine as a teenager and kick started her career with the self-produced and heartily licensed Home EP. In 2015, Jenny O. was awarded The Holly Prize by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, as "an exceptionally talented and inspired young musician whose work exhibits the qualities of Holly's music: true, great, and original."

After O.’s first full length Automechanic was released in Feburary of 2013 she found herself on the road for two years in support of acts like Father John Misty, Leon Russell, and Rodriguez. She confesses, “I’m into music but I’m not an extrovert. I’m really sensitive and each tour presents new dynamics to surf through. When you’re in a bad place spiritually but obligated to perform, the shows feel like fraud. I wanted it to stop until I could get my shit together.” The end of the album cycle prompted a move to Nashville for a while. “I felt like riding a bicycle in a little mellow town —being transient, elsewhere,” she explained.

Jenny moved into an 18th-century log cabin that had belonged to Jimmy Buffet in the
‘70s. She spent her time there reading, writing and sleeping in her vaulted bedroom, trying to heal while battling depression.

“It was the most beautiful, the cheapest, and the most necessary place I’ve ever lived,” she says. It was here that she wrote the songs that became Peace & Information. After spending eight months there, the cabin was bulldozed to make way for condominiums. She returned to Los Angeles to record the album with Wilson.

"We recorded to tape, like last time. The whole record was tracked and mixed in 17 days," Jenny says. "We both draw from all kinds of music so the album is pretty varied. I declare it rock & roll, but this time we used more synthesizers and grunge guitar, and there's a depression bossa nova on there too."

Peace & Information comes out on August 4, 2017 on Holy Trinity Records
