Steven Wilson: To the Bone

Read "To the Bone" reviewed by John Kelman

From the moment that he decided to “go solo"--despite his previous flagship group, Porcupine Tree, beginning in the late '80s as a solo project that only evolved into a group when it became popular enough to necessitate putting together a band in order to perform live--Steven Wilson has, in many ways, defied categorization and expectation, while ...

2016 Enjoy Jazz Festival
Heidelberg, Mannheim & Ludwigshafen, Germany
October 24-November 1, 2016

Returning to Heidelberg and the Enjoy Jazz Festival after a three-year absence is still more than a bit like returning to a second home. Not just the same hotel (the ever-charming Hollander Hof, along the Neckar River by an ...

Perhaps one of the biggest signs of multi-instrumentalist Steven Wilson's continued upward trajectory is this: less than nine months after selling out two nights at the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal in 2015, he brought his top- drawer band back to Montreal ...

Read "Steven Wilson: Maintaining Momentum with Transience & 4 1/2" reviewed by John Kelman

Jane Getter Premonition: ON

Read "Jane Getter Premonition: ON" reviewed by John Kelman

While it's true that, in the rock world, there are relatively few female guitarists, especially those leaning towards the heavier and more progressive side of the equation, that doesn't mean that those intrepid enough to enter what has traditionally been a man's world should be assessed on anything but their own merits. Good guitarists are good ...

Adam Holzman: The Deform Variations

Read "Adam Holzman: The Deform Variations" reviewed by John Kelman

He's been Steven Wilson's keyboardist of choice (and rightfully so) since the British progressive rocker first hit the road in 2011, after years fronting Porcupine Tree, in support of the Kscope artist's first two albums as a solo artist--2009's Insurgentes and 2011's Grace for Drowning. But while Adam Holzman continues to work with Wilson to this ...

When currently ex-Porcupine Tree founder/front man last played Montreal in November, 2011--touring in support of his second solo recording, Grace for Drowning (Kscope, 2011)--it was clear by the end of the performance that the next time he came to the Canadian city, the ...

Read "Steven Wilson: The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories) [Deluxe Edition]" reviewed by John Kelman

Even though Porcupine Tree began as a solo project for a young Steven Wilson in the late 1980s--and despite the British singer/guitarist/keyboardist remaining its primary composer through to The Incident (Kscope, 2009) and the recent live record from that tour, Octane Twisted (Kscope, 2012)--it's been some time since the group was truly representative of his aspirations, ...
