Biography

Dan Wilson is a Minneapolis musician best known as the main guitarist/vocalist for the band Semisonic. He was also a member of Trip Shakespeare during the early 1990s.

Currently, Wilson is perhaps best known for his co-writing and collaborations with other artists. He contributed three songs to the 2011 album 21 by UK singer-songwriter Adele,which has had the longest Top 5 run in history on the Billboard Album Chart and which won the 2012 Grammy Award for Album of the Year. Wilson was part of that Grammy-winning team, as he co-wrote and produced the hit single “Someone Like You” which held the No. 1 position for 5 weeks in the U.S. and has remained in the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 for months.

Wilson co-wrote six songs with the Dixie Chicks for their 2006 album Taking The Long Way, which garnered the coveted Album of the Year at the 2007 Grammy Awards. Wilson himself received the 2007 Grammy Award for Song of the Year for “Not Ready to Make Nice,” one of the songs he co-wrote with the Dixie Chicks. His accolades as a songwriter have grown from success with his own band Semisonic. In 1999, Wilson was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rock Song for Semisonic’s “Closing Time,” which hit No. 6 in the Top 40 Chart and was No. 1 on the Modern Rock Chart.
