Steven Wilson, once described as ‘the most successful British musician most people have never heard of,’ embarked on his sold-out world tour last year in support of his latest album ‘To The Bone’ which has sold over 150k albums worldwide to date, both the album and the tour received amazing reviews with Q giving the album 4* ‘Wonderfully executed… pop brilliance.’ Eagle Rock filmed the full 3 hr concert in March 2018 where the show was part of his three night residency at the Royal Albert Hall.
Thanks to a prolific work ethic that puts even Damon Albarn’s extensive list of side projects to shame, self-taught producer, engineer, and multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson has gradually become one of the U.K.’s most critically acclaimed cult artists. Born in Kingston Upon Thames in London in 1967, Wilson was inspired to pursue a career in music after devouring his parents’ Pink Floyd and Donna Summer records, and by the age of 12 he had already started to experiment with different guitar and recording techniques.
After stints in several groups including psychedelic duo Altamont, prog rockers Karma, and new wave band Pride of Passion, Wilson went on to form art pop outfit No Man with vocalist Tim Bowness in 1987 and his most famous creation, Porcupine Tree, in the same year, both of which he continued to alternate between, releasing 16 albums overall from 1991 until 2009. Despite these two long-term commitments, Wilson still found the time to pursue other projects, recording material under the guise of ambient electronica act Bass Communion, Krautrock revivalists Incredible Expanding Mindfuck, and Blackfield, a collaboration with Israeli rock star Aviv Geffen, during the ’90s alone.
