Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England

Steven Wilson (born Steven John Wilson on November 3, 1967, in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England) is a self-taught producer, audio engineer, and multi-instrumentalist. Wilson, also known for the high production quality of his music, employs synthesizers and programmed music along with live instruments to create a unique atmosphere for each song he works on, including otherwise-simple pop tunes.

Under his own name, Steven has released a series of singles, titled Cover Versions, and the albums Insurgentes, Grace for Drowning, and The Raven That Refused to Sing (and Other Stories), as well as a substantial body of other solo work in Bass Communion and Incredible Expanding Mindfuck.

He is perhaps best known as the lead guitarist/singer and songwriter for progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, for whom he was the sole member during the 1980s and early 1990s, and for his massive prog mansion, but his projects are numerous, including collaborating with Israeli superstar Aviv Geffen, Blackfield; a long-running partnership with Tim Bowness, No-Man; teaming up with Dirk Serries, Continuum; and a joint album with Opeth’s singer, guitarist and composer Mikael Åkerfeldt, called Storm Corrosion.

In addition to his prolific musical output, he has also undertaken production work with such high-profile artists as Opeth, Dream Theater, Jim Matheos of Fates Warning, Anathema, Orphaned Land, Marillion, Fish, Yoko Ono, and friend Robert Fripp.
