More information: Ray Wilson started his music career with the group Stiltskin in the mid-1990s. Stiltskin, considered a Scottish grunge band, released the silver status album “The Mind’s Eye” (1994). Its number one debut single “Inside” reached international success being used as backing melody for a Levi’s advert. However, disputes within the band and with the record label resulted in the split of the band after only one album. Nonetheless, Ray Wilson’s voice and singing had left an impression in the music scene and convinced Genesis members Tony Banks and Mike Rutherford to engage Wilson as lead singer after Phil Collins had departed the band in 1996. Together they released the album “Calling All Stations” (1997), an attempt of returning to Genesis’ progressive roots and being an album-oriented band. The album became Genesis’ fourth best selling album. "Propaganda Man" is a return to a much more intimate sound, very much a reflection of Ray’s live performances. A deeply insightful album, the well crafted arrangements allow Ray’s vocals to express the emotions throughout the lyrics. Often purely Ray and acoustic guitar. An album with beauty and angst, tension and repose, reflection and resolve; “Propaganda Man” gives the listener a special connection that only an accomplished singer/ songwriter can achieve. It has already been regarded as possibly his best album so far, from ‘Classic Rock’ in the UK.
