David Patrick Wilson is a filmmaker out of New York that just released a new song. His last film, Collar the Movie, available on Amazon stars Tom Sizemore and Rebecca DeMornay. Now he is turning to his musical roots with a new country song just released but with more in the works.
Tell me what prompted you to do this. Have you done anything similar in the past?
David P Wilson: I had a pickup truck that my Uncle left me when he passed and I was staying at his place in Long Island. I went to visit my mom upstate NY in Sullivan County and I took her dog, "Shadow" on a ride in the pick-up. I had such fun with him on that ride that I wrote the song on the way back to Long Island. I had never done anything like that before, mostly because my mother hated country music, which I love. I have written a lot of music of all different kinds, but that was my first foray into country music.
What is it all about?
David P Wilson: Taking a ride with my dog. I had bought that dog for my daughter. When my daughter moved back to California with her mom and her brother, she left the dog with my mother. I then got him back after she passed.
What artists inspire you?
David P Wilson: Oh boy. There are so many. As far a recording artists, Don Henley, Bruce Springsteen, James Brown, Billy Joel, Steve Winwood, The Beatles, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley (was the first) Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, Heart

Who would like this music? Like is it good for chilling out, etc?
David P Wilson: Anyone who loves pickup trucks, dogs, romance, country music and life.
What other projects are you working on?
David P Wilson: Right now we are working to complete a solo album of country tunes which we will be releasing in bits and pieces over the next few months. Next stop, "Too Old To Be Too Good" and "House of Love" (featuring my daughter Tedi Wilson who has an incredible voice and a brand new baby). I have spent the last six (6) months working on a rock band project with the band 'Straight Shot' that will be reconfigured to include some new elements. We will be doing classic rock, like you've never heard it, and new material for a new album project next spring. In the interim, after the first of the year we will be booking live dates all around the Metropolitan area. We are also working on the sound track for our next film/pilot project, "Shadow Serenade." (BTW, the hero of the movie is a dog, named Shadow!)
