Profile
Steven John Wilson (born 3 November 1967) is an English musician and record producer, most associated with the progressive rock genre. Currently a solo artist, he became known as the founder, lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter of the band Porcupine Tree, but he has numerous other projects both as a musician and as a producer. As a solo artist, he has released music as Bass Communion and The I.E.M. (Incredible Expanding Mindfuck) as well as under his own name.
