Critically acclaimed singer and guitarist Steve Wilson is using Takamine guitars on the ‘To The Bone’ world tour. Initially known as the founder, lead guitarist, lead vocalist and songwriter of the band Porcupine Tree, as well as being a member of several other bands, Wilson’s honours include four nominations for the Grammy Awards, twice with Porcupine Tree, with his collaborative band Storm Corrosion and as a soloist. In 2015, he received three awards at the Progressive Music Awards in London for his services to the genre, where he was crowned “the king of prog rock”. Nevertheless, his work has largely stayed away from mainstream music.
On the eve of a major Albert Hall gig, Wilson says: ‘I’m really proud to be a part of Takamine’s dynasty, because I know I’m holding a genuine work of art in my hands when I play their instruments.
‘They even make me sing better…. no really!’
