THE STORY OF NORMAN WILKERSON’S “ILLUSIONS OF GRANDEUR”
by McKayla Grace September 6, 2019
"Dabbling in poetry, music and game design, Norman Wilkerson makes himself a triple threat. With his bold new release Illusions of Grandeur, he returns to the indie scene diving headfirst into the darker side of the genre." Check out what he had to say about this newest passion project: https://twostorymelody.com/the-story-of-norman-wilkersons-illusions-of-grandeur/ ​​​​​​​
Illusions of Grandeur Canto Edition 

This Canto edition of Illusions of Grandeur is a special edition created from the wants of fans. After the initial release of Illusions of Grandeur, along side my first book of poetry Wolves Among Me a collection of poems, I had fans request that I do recorded sessions of reading poetry works from the book. So after making selections from the book and asking those fans that bought a first copy of the book to make their favorite selections, I created the Canto sessions that are included with this version of the album. Enjoy the music, enjoy the readings, and most of all thank you for listening.
