Interview: Peter Wilson discusses new solo album, ‘Freedom’s Door’

Last Friday, Peter Wilson released his debut solo album, Freedom’s Door. While a new endeavor, it’s by no means a radical departure from his band Four Trips Ahead. Drummer Ken Candelas and engineer Nick Cipriano make a welcome return to both embody and reinvigorate Wilson’s signature hard rock sound, with guitarist Glenn Sherman and bassist Harold Skeete – Wilson’s longtime friends from the New York City scene – punctuating this familial unity. For all involved, this project is not just an extension of Wilson’s musical talents and proclivities; it’s unquestioningly vulnerable and forthright, drawing thematic inspiration from both tragic and triumphant personal anecdotes, and translating it succinctly and sincerely.

Seven years following the release of the Four Trips Ahead album …And The Fire Within, we caught right back up, discussing the album’s impact, the nuanced circumstances that catalyzed Freedom’s Door, and the artists that fuel Wilson’s passion for music to this day.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
