Award-winning lyricist Tad Wilkes (Moon Pie Curtis) is a songwriter/singer from Oxford, Mississippi drawing upon wit, want, and wonder.
“Like a lot of those masters of the craft,” writes Rick Hynum, “Wilkes’s own musical style defies easy labels. It owes a little bit to the likes of Guy Clark, John Prine and Kris Kristofferson and a lot to no one you’ve ever heard before. Peppered with raunchy wit and piercing self-deprecation, his songs manage to be intensely personal and universal at the same time, filled with longing and laugh-out-loud one-liners. Even the saddest and sweetest of his songs will make you guffaw when you least expect it.”
