Electric Lady Studios has the perfect combination of history, vibe, and gear to host a performance by Jonathan Wilson. He is a Los Angeles-based producer, musician, songwriter, and all-around music fan who brings a vintage heart to present day sounds — whether that's in his own songs, on albums from artists like Father John Misty and Dawes, or in Roger Waters' touring band.

Seemingly always busy, Wilson made the time to write and shape his latest solo album, Rare Birds, and fortunately he made the time for this FUV Live show too. After he and his band jammed on a few Hendrix tunes in soundcheck, they took us on a poetic rock ride through some of the new songs, plus one favorite from 2011's Gentle Spirit.
