A tireless musician whose idiosyncratic
taste and immense production talent made him one of the most respected if
under-the-radar record makers of his time, Steven Wilson was born November 3,
1967 in Kingston Upon Thames, London. He taught himself numerous musical
instruments as a child, and even made his first experimental forays into
recording techniques as a teenager. Claiming Donna Summer and Pink Floyd as
equal lifelong influences, he began Altamont, his first of many bands, at age
15. Before he was 20 he launched a pair of bands that began to establish him,
the prog oriented art pop duo No-Man and the rock band Porcupine Trees. As
those projects evolved through the 1990s, he released solo work in a wide
variety of musical styles under a series of stage names. Wilson became an in-demand
producer, leading to him remixing classic albums by XTC, Yes, King Crimson, and
many others over the years. He launched a solo career in the 21st
century with a series of singles that featured a cover of a famous pop tune on
the “A” side and an original on the “B” side. His solo debut LP, 2008’s Insurgents
showcased his masterful production skill, as well as his knack for alt-rock
hooks and his prog-rock chops. To promote the 2011 double album Grace for Drowning,
Wilson mounted his first extensive solo tour. 2013’s The Raven That Refused
to Sing (And Other Stories)
was a concept album where every song was like a
supernatural short story, and Wilson talked one of his record making idols,
Alan Parsons, into engineering the LP. 2015’s Hand. Cannot. Erase. was
another concept album based on the true story of a woman whose death went
unnoticed for years. Those albums steadily climbed higher and higher on the
charts, leading to 2017’s To the Bone, an album steeped in the 80s
art-pop style of Peter Gabriel, Tears for Fears, and Kate Bush, going top 5 in
the UK, Germany, Finland, and the Netherlands, giving him his best charting
solo album. In 2020 he dropped a series of singles including “Personal
and “12 Things I Forgot” that would all appear on his 2021
LP The Future Bites.
