Steven Wilson

Born:

One of the most eclectic and prolific artists in rock music, Steven Wilson has been writing, recording, and producing music continuously since the age of 10. A native of Hemel Hempstead in England, Steven was first exposed to music at the age of eight, when he started hearing his father listening to Pink Floyd’s “Dark Side of the Moon,” and his mother to Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You Baby,” two albums that were pivotal in the development of his musical direction. His father, an electrical engineer, built him a multi-track tape machine, and he began to experiment with overdubbing and developing a repertoire of production techniques.Early demo tapes started to emerge in the mid 80’s while Steven was still at school, and at the end of the decade he created the two projects which gained him entry to the professional music world: Porcupine Tree and No Man

Read "Adam Holzman and Brave New World: Iron Curtain" reviewed by Mike Jacobs


Keyboardist Adam Holzman may be known more these days for his work with the sometime Porcupine Tree progressive mastermind Steven Wilson but the biggest thing on AH's resume prior to his working with Wilson was his stint as keyman for one Miles Davis. Dropping the needle on “Iron Curtain," this all becomes crystal clear as it's ...

Exposures

Read "Exposures" reviewed by John Kelman


Between the impact of the COVID pandemic since 2020, and in the eight year-long tenure of King Crimson's final lineup, which toured between 2014 and 2021, there's been a lot revealed about its sole remaining founding member, guitarist/keyboardist Robert Fripp. Since 2012, the more than five-decade history of King Crimson, live and in the ...

Who Do You Think We Are?

Read "Who Do You Think We Are?" reviewed by John Kelman


Trying to find a distinct definition of what has come to be known as “The Canterbury Sound" is as elusive as attempting to describe what, in the jazz world, has become an overused epithet for the German ECM Records label and “The ECM Sound." Attempts to do so usually fail short because, rather than being actual ...

King Crimson: The Complete 1969 Recordings

Read "The Complete 1969 Recordings" reviewed by John Kelman


There will, inevitably, exist some cynics who will dispute the first comment about King Crimson's long-awaited The Complete 1969 Recordings box set, but it's difficult to imagine it being anything but the plain truth. This is, indeed, the definitive final word on the band's first lineup, collecting multiple versions of its earth-shattering 1969 Island Records debut, ...

Rhys Marsh: October After All

Read "October After All" reviewed by Glenn Astarita


Hopefully, this alluring album by progressive rock multi-instrumentalist, composer, vocalist Rhys Marsh won't slip under the radar. It's an album that has staying power due to the artist's atmospheric and cleverly arranged works, largely containing memorably melodic hooks and emotive expressionism. Born in the UK, Marsh now resides in Norway, which has become a fertile region ...

Unburied Treasure

Read "Unburied Treasure" reviewed by John Kelman


Of all the so-called progressive rock bands that emerged in the late '60s/early '70s, Gentle Giant has, perhaps, been the most misunderstood, and the one which failed to reach the same deserved commercial heights of its creatively innovative brethren, like King Crimson, Yes, Genesis and Pink Floyd. Of the bigger names from that time, only Van ...

King Crimson: In the Court of the Crimson King (50th Anniversary)

Read "In the Court of the Crimson King (50th Anniversary)" reviewed by John Kelman


The passage of time is often defined by both forward motion and a growing collection of memories past; it's also measured by significant milestones that are either realized at the time or in subsequent years. At a recent Royal/Celebration Package event prior to King Crimson's Théâtre St-Denis performance in Montréal, Canada, guitarist and only remaining group ...

Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008

Read "Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008" reviewed by John Kelman


Yet another year, yet another characteristically detailed and chronologically contextualized King Crimson mega-box set. Except that 2019 is no typical year. And Heaven & Earth is no typical King Crimson box set. While Heaven & Earth: Live and in the Studio 1997-2008 completes (well, almost) the series of box sets documenting King ...
