Biography

One of the UK's most respected rock vocalists, Scotsman Ray Wilson was the voice behind Stiltskin, Scotland's post-grunge answer to Nirvana and best known for their 1994 UK number one Inside, used as with great effect in a Levi 501 TV ad campaign. Upon Phil Collins' departure from Genesis in 1996, Wilson was approached by Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford and in June 1997 was recruited as the band's new lead vocalist featuring on the album Calling All Stations released later that year. The album became a top ten hit in most territories except, crucially, in the US where it only reached number 54 on the Billboard Charts. In Genesis terms this was a failure and disappointing advance ticket sales on the album's forthcoming US promotional tour persuaded Banks and Rutherford to call it a day, at least for the time being, and Ray Wilson found himself unexpectedly out of a job. Ironically Wilson later worked with Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett (who had left Genesis long before Wilson became the band's vocalist) on the Genesis Revisited II tour. Since 2003 Wilson has released six studio albums with mixed success including two albums released in 2016, Song For A Friend and Makes Me Think Of Home.
