There's a sense of depth and mystery in nearly all of Wilkerson's songs, even the simple love songs, that is rare in modern songwriters.

Wilkerson's songs are definitely born of experience, although Wilkerson says his songs are more often inspired by the lives of friends.

Wilkerson's songs reference politics, religion, social issues, spiritual searches and romance (sometimes all in the same number) and there's a rawness that gives them an outsider-artist edge.
