Nathan Wilkes

The last Tragar walk-in during the early days was Nathan Wilkes, who left behind a distilled gulp of bourbon soul in “Now That I’m Wise.” Jones was so enamored with the song that he rerecorded it a few years later with the mysterious Andrea Williams, but the cover couldn’t touch the fuzzy magic of the original. When flipped over, the more generic “Strange Feeling” felt like an afterthought, much like Wilkes’ short lived recording career.
