The Twilight Hours are musicians, as a band, formed by Matt Wilson (Trip Shakespeare and The Flops) and John Munson (Trip Shakespeare, Semisonic, The New Standards, The Flops and John Munson and the Witnesses).

Background[edit]

The founding members of The Twilight Hours, Matt Wilson and John Munson, first performed together in the band E. Brown and then in Trip Shakespeare. Trip Shakespeare was picked up by A&M records but did not achieve commercial success. Munson joined with Wilson's brother Dan in the forming of the band Semisonic which was signed by MCA and received enough airplay to have some of their songs reach the Pop and Modern charts. During this time Matt Wilson began a solo career and released the "Burnt, White, and Blue" album. When Semisonic went on hiatus, Munson reunited with Wilson and formed The Flops which was dissolved in 2005 as the pair decided to move their music in a new direction and the band The Twilight Hours began to take shape.

Formation[edit]

First envisioned as strictly a duo between Matt Wilson and John Munson, where they would limit themselves to upright bass and acoustic guitar.[1] As they progressed they soon abandoned the idea and added drums, electric guitar and electric bass rather than upright bass. In an interview with public television Wilson described forming the band and stated "Its right back to the same phantom sound we have been chasing for years and years."[1] Munson described the growth of The Twilight Hours saying "Now the band has kind of evolved a sound, so you bring in this new song and the band makes it alive, it very quickly becomes a living work of art."[1]
