Producer for Times Too Named | July 17, 2002
John is proud to announce that Dan Wilson has been named producer for his soon-to-be-released album Times Too.
Dan is best known as the driving force behind the Minneapolis-based band Semisonic, and was nominated for a Grammy for his hit song "Closing Time."
"The great thing about Dan," says McKone, "is that he has huge ears. He has this uncanny ability to hone in on what it is that I'm trying to do, and add clarity to my vision and style, even though it is radically different than what he is doing in his own work. That, to me, is the mark of a great musician, and I'm thrilled to have him on board."
John and Dan have refining material for the last several months, and will begin recording songs sometime in August.
This is not the first collaboration between John and Dan. Dan created the distinctive logo that graces John's first album, Here It Is, and gave much appreciated encouragement and advice on that project.
Look for the release of Times Too in early 2002.
