One of the UK’s most singular artists, Steven Wilson is a songwriter, producer & Grammy nominated spatial audio mixer who has made a gradual transition from cult status (as frontman of Porcupine Tree) to charting solo artist.

Wilson first began making experimental music as a teenager in his bedroom on homemade tape machines. The results were released under the name Porcupine Tree, whose music shifted between ambient electronics & expansive Floydian rock before gaining huge critical & commercial success with 2002’s In Absentia, where the band added a brutal and propulsive metal element to their music which ended up a huge influence on a generation of bands that followed.

As Porcupine Tree’s status grew, Wilson also spent an increasing amount of time working on solo material. Each new release defied genre & expectations. Where his first album Insurgentes was claustrophobic and guitar heavy, The Raven That Refused To Sing was like a series of Edgar Allen Poe stories put to melancholic melody. 2021’s The Future Bites presented a different vision again, adding gleaming, propulsive electronics & a guest appearance by Elton John.

Recorded in isolation, Wilson’s latest - The Harmony Codex - is his most fully realised work to date. An endlessly revealing puzzle box, it eschews easy categorisation & slips effortlessly between styles.
