Fanfare is the second studio album released by LA-based artist Jonathan Wilson. It was released in 2013 on the British indie label Bella Union. The album was recorded at Wilson's studio Fivestarstudios in Laurel Canyon.


The album was recorded over a period of nine months, at Wilson's studio located in the legendary Laurel Canyon. Similar to his previous album Gentle Spirit, Wilson continued to collaborate with numerous artist such as Roy Harper, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Benmont Tench, Father John Misty, Patrick Sansone, Dawes among others.[1] Prior to recording the album, Wilson set out to find a grand piano, which were to serve as the centerpiece and main feature on the album and help to achieve a more epic sound than previous.[2] Wilson found a Steinway Grand Piano for sale on Craigslist and was lucky enough to convince the seller for him to rent it for about nine months.[3]

Fanfare features all original Wilson compositions, with the exception of his rendition of Sopwith Camel's "Fazon".
