Dan Wilson is set to release his new album Love Without Fear on April 15 and to celebrate, Dan will perform three special shows at The Cedar  on June 4, June 5, and June 6.

Night one, June 4, will feature “Words & Music by Dan Wilson,” an evening of songs and stories that pull back the curtain on the art and practice of songwriting. Between stripped-down renditions of some of the modern-day classics he has written on his own and with such collaborators as Adele, Taylor Swift, the Dixie Chicks, and Carole King, Dan shares his insights into songwriting and relates the moments of discovery that led to them.  

For night two, June 5, Dan will invite friends and special guest musicians to The Cedar and perform live in concert.

For the June 6 show,  Dan says “Let’s call night three 'Chef's surprise.' I'm going to have fun with the format this night, maybe include elements of nights one and two, and mix in some songs, mine and covers, that I haven't performed before.”

These three shows are the first of Dan Wilson’s tour in support of his new album, Love Without Fear. The album “is about being left alone and desperately wishing for connection and togetherness,” explains Wilson. “The sound lives at the intersection of Americana and Beatles-influenced rock and roll, a little bit of twang and a lot of cinematic emotion.”
