about

The EP 'This Is Wilbur' brings a new feel to a classic genre, weaving lush guitars, addicting vocal melodies and modal harmonies to create a 60's folk-rock-pop psychedelic tapestry. The first song, “An Hour of Sunshine”, is an instant and memorable classic.

'This Is Wilbur' is now available for streaming and downloads on most major digital outlets.

Track Name: An Hour of Sunshine
Draw the curtains, pull the shades
An hour of sunshine, then it fades
I think of you, I don’t know why
So long ago we said goodbye

Nothing ever seemed for certain
Nothing ever stopped the hurting

Watching winter turn to spring
I remember everything
A lovely smile, a perfect day
Always half a world away

Nothing ever seemed for certain
Nothing ever stopped the hurting

Another year has come and gone
And still I sing for you this song
Writing letters in my mind
Knowing what I’d hope to find

Nothing ever seemed for certain
Nothing ever stopped the hurting

I wonder if we’ll meet again
At the Gare de l’Est at ten?
I’d give up everything that’s mine
Just for one more hour of sunshine
Track Name: Perfect Stranger
I reach out to you
I’m no perfect stranger
Love is real, but we are not.

I forget my name
Or if I’m a number
I can’t count it all the same.

I say “love” to you
You say “I don’t know it”
Now you’re free, the feeling’s gone.
Track Name: Miss Hardy
Searching everywhere I go
Making up more reasons to know
Why it matters to hear her sing again

Only yesterday I heard
Her voice soft and clear
Has she been all of these years alone?

The old photos in black and white
Show what her life was like
As a kid, I wish I had known Miss Hardy

Wandering in unfamiliar places
People milling ‘round everywhere
Waiting for a trace among the faces
Imagining I saw you standing there

Fourty years have come and gone
Is it life or just a song?
They all came to see her play, Miss Hardy

I searched the bins of record stores
Any trail that leads to her door
I wish we were twenty years old again
I wish we were twenty years old again
Track Name: She's Gone
She treats me bad, but I still need her
She makes me sad, but I still love her
But now she’s gone and I’m alone

She has my ring and my sweater
She gave them back with just a letter
That said “goodbye forever”

She said our love would never work out
It didn’t mean a thing
We had our plans and yesterday
I even bought her a diamond ring

She treats me bad, but I still need her
She makes me sad, but I still love her
But now she’s gone and I’m alone

She said our love would never work out
It didn’t mean a thing
We had our plans and yesterday
I even bought her a diamond ring

She said she loved me and I believed her
But all I have now is just a picture
But now she’s gone so I’ll sing a song
