"David's song "Simple Mind (The Student Loan Song)" caught my attention. His voice is warm and he shares the message of the stress that college graduates are dealing with today. Listening to his music, I hear influences from James Taylor and Jason Isbell!"

- Helen Leicht, Midday Host, XPN Local Host, Assistant Program Director - WXPN 88.5 FM - Philadelphia

"David Wilson's voice is awesome. It drives me nuts because I can't figure out which timeless songwriter he sounds like. Gram Parsons? Jim Croce? Harry Nilsson? A very compelling performer!"

- Cindy Howes, Morning Mix Host - WYEP 91.3 FM - Pittsburgh

"David is a bright star rising! His songs have strong visual images backed up with solid guitar rhythms and heartfelt vocals. He is an up and coming talent in the new world of singer-songwriters."

- Greg Joseph, Bassist, Songwriter for The Clarks

"David Wilson's beautiful and haunting songs make me feel like I'm on a long country road at sunset or the dusty coal mines of Appalachia. His guitar playing is artful and intricate and his voice is smooth and sincere. He is an artist that is clearly headed for great things."

- Bess Rogers, Independent Recording Artist, guitarist for Ingrid Michaelson

"Bailey Park has opened 2 different shows for me with 2 different artists and I have enjoyed the experience. They are professional, entertaining and a pleasure to have on the bill. I look forward to working with them again."
