Wilson, Tony 6tet: A Day's Life (Drip Audio)

Label: Drip Audio    
Released in: Canada    


"A Day's Life is the first recording of Tony Wilson's music inspired by the plight and lives of the homeless and drug addiction in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. Wilson, "unquestionably one of the most original guitar stylists on the Canadian scene", leads A Day's Life Band, a collection of some of the finest musicians and improvisers in Canada brought together especially for this project: JP Carter on trumpet, Jesse Zubot on violin, Peggy Lee on cello, Russell Sholberg on bass and Skye Brooks on drums.

Wilson wrote the music while working on his 2012 novella, A Day's Life, a raw fictional account of a day in the life of a crack-addicted musician who lives and busks on the streets of the Downtown Eastside. While not autobiographical, the novella and the music have been lifted largely by the guitarist's experience living on the streets of the Downtown Eastside during a few particularly difficult months of his life in the mid 90s. Some pieces like "The Laundry Room" are based on memories from Wilson's childhood."-Drip Audio
