About The Band
in 1961, Dan Wilson found a love for the arts at an early age, picking up the guitar while still in his teens, but would go
on to become one of the most talented and well received songwriters and musicians around. It was after graduating college
that Dan Wilson moved back home to Minneapolis and joined his brother's band, Trip Shakespeare, a very popular local band
that went on to release a slew of albums very popular with fans, but unable to break out into the mainstream music scene.
After the group dissolved, Dan began to start focusing on songwriting and started a new band called Semisonic in 1995. This
band found great success and popularity, especially after the release of their second album in 1998, "Feeling Strangely Fine",
which sported a handful of hit singles that moved it to platinum status not long after. Of all the hit songs on this album
was most notably "Closing Time", which was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1999. The group released one more album but went
on hiatus, with Dan focusing on his songwriting and solo efforts more than ever, eventually leading to him releasing his debut
solo album "Free Life" in 2007 to widespread critical acclaim. His songwriting skills have become legendary in the industry,
with a great many of the songs he has co-written or produced going on to earn awards for artists such as "Adele", "Dixie Chicks",
"Taylor Swift", "Keith Urban" and many more.
There has been a wide range of work for
Dan Wilson that could be considered breakthrough, with a stand out album for many of the bands that he has been a part of.
With his band Semisonic from the mid to late 90's, it was their second album "Feeling Strangely Fine" that made a splash in
the mainstream music world, touting hits like "Closing Time" and "Secret Smile" that pushed the album to receive platinum
status. More recently with his solo project Dan Wilson has received great success both critically and commercially with his
2007 release of "Free Life", an album that featured a great array of hit singles, with the eponymous track being used in various
films and television shows.
