"...2 – the 34-year-old singer loads in at a different kind of proving ground: the Hole in the Wall. The Midnight Stroll, his rock band with producer/multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson, stages an official release show for their summer LP, Heartbreak Bugaloo...."
"...Directed by: Jon Turtletaub. Starring: Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Li Bingbing, Jessica McNamee, Robert Taylor, Cliff Curtis, Masi Oka, Shuya Sophia Cai, Winston Chao and Ólafur Darri Ólafsson...."
"...The ensuing full-length of the same title, patient, deep-thinking Americana that earned a four-star rave in the Chronicle, served as a troubadour turn for then-26-year-old Evan Charles, who formerly fronted pure, homegrown rock & roll acts the Sweet Nuthin and the Daze. Producer Jonas Wilson, keen on the Austin native's distinct voice and poetic lyrics, all but dragged Charles into the studio to document a subdued DIY vision on the order of Leonard Cohen's Songs From a Room...."
"...Five years after relocating to Austin, where she chose to hang her hat, in part, because the music scene proved less rigid than longtime home Washington, D.C., momentum builds for her other band – the cinematic dream-pop prism known as Night Glitter. Last month, the quintet, co-anchored by singer/multi-instrumentalist John Michael Schoepf and featuring drummer Josh Blue, guitarist Kyle Ellison, and secret weapon Jonas Wilson, turned ears with the Adrian Quesada-produced "Tunnels"/"Radio" cassette, a fetching psych-pop double A-side single..."
"...Midnight Stroll multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson is currently arranging classes for Mosaic's education component. To start, he's offering a four-week practical theory course and private instruction in all areas..."
"...Austin attorney Keith Hampton, who's representing Storey with Mike Ware, says that Cherry's parents Glenn and Judy were appalled by the state's invitation to travel to Huntsville to witness Storey's execution, and have filed an affidavit with Tarrant Co. District Attorney Sharen Wilson and Gov..."
"...Local guitar phenom Jonas Wilson moved to Bastrop several years ago because rent for his Austin recording studio was impossibly expensive...."
"...A 14-year-old Jonas Wilson immediately recognizes Clifford Antone making the rounds of his namesake club during a "We Three Kings" tribute night. He approaches the bluesman and, with a zeal only possible in youth, informs him that he'll play his club one day...."
"...Now it’s not about cool riffs, it’s about songs. [Austin’s] Jonas Wilson and I made this timeless record that isn’t necessarily rock, but the songs seem to make people happy and that’s what I want to do...."
"...Beats 'n' bleats from Aaron Behrens and Jonas Wilson take undeniable shape on the locals' sophomore full-length as the Midnight Stroll. Rudimentary rhythm tracks and overdubbed guitar lighting up first LP Heartbreak Bugaloo in 2016 proved as effectively moody and melancholic as a Queen demo..."
"...indie label El Camino Media, home to Veruca Salt and Skating Polly, for this summer's CWL debut LP Donut Feel Good, which marks a notable departure from the nutsack-swinging rock & roll of the Blind Pets with a collision of Kinks and Mikal Cronin. The album, composed and arranged by Midnight Stroll instrumentalist Jonas Wilson, was recorded in Portland, Ore., last year with Battleme's Matt Drenik, formerly of Austin band Lions...."
"...In 2013, Behrens stepped away from the Austin duo's strobe-light electronics for discordant guitar riffs and piano ballads in solo project Midnight Stroll. Now teamed with inspired multi-instrumentalist Jonas Wilson (Lomita, the White White Lights), the pair retains the Seventies stadium rock grandeur of Behrens' previous debut EP, the singer's melodramatic twang intact..."
"...Previously, Ford had heard his friends/collaborators Jonas Wilson and Ricky Ray Jackson say good things about Bianculli – which piqued his interest...."
"...The Blind Pets stake their home genre on opener "Team," a grunge-loving garage pogo equal parts Seattle and Long Beach, then backup "Big Kids" doubles down on that sound, slower, heavier, with a predilection toward drone. In both cases, Jonas Wilson's production layers all components like a master cake builder, Josh Logan's vocals topping the stack well above his guitars and skate rhythms by bassist Dustin "Dusty" Hannah and drummer Alex Mixson..."
"...I had Nic Armstrong on guitar, Alex Schroeder on bass, and Don Clark on drums, and I thought it was done. Then when it came time to start putting together a live band, I found Jonas Wilson and the way that dude played guitar made me want to re-record everything..."
"...Behrens still has night moves like Jagger, but the look and context’s changed, and mostly for the better. With the Midnight Stroll, anchored by perennially underrated guitarist Jonas Wilson (Lomita, White White Lights), Behrens swapped glitchy raves for brown-sugar R&B that pulled from all corners of the classic rock canon..."
"...Tonight, Simms’ crew drops in around midnight after Alien Knife Fight and Jonas Wilson’s Plastic Habit, purveyors of excellent new EP Out of the Airlock. Doors at 9, and a $5 cover...."
"...Solo acts are starting to show up as band names. Even Brecht, who’s recorded two albums under his name since 2008, has gone the way of the moniker, opting for SundayHouse on his next album, currently in production at Jonas Wilson’s studio in Bastrop...."
"...White White Lights guitarist Jonas Wilson and vocalist Jenny Gacy lost their home and studio in the Bastrop fire, saving only a couple of guitars. A relief fund has been created on their behalf: jonasandjen.chipin.com..."
"...Ascendence big or small always feels somewhat anti-climatic in the face of a debut EP, especially since the Yeah Yeah Yeahs punch of Jenny Gacy's girlie vocal omnipresence and, the post-blues sci-fi licks of guitarist Jonas Wilson (aka Deluxe Peroux) on future's-so-bright opener "Space Invaders" are strictly big league. "Heresy" follows like the other half of a double A-side 45 with an even bigger sound – a main-stage sound – atop which Gacy's candy vocals swirl with peppermint-striped insouciance..."
