Steven Wilson is perhaps my favorite musician, artist, producer, really, he's a renaissance man. This month, he releases his third solo album, entitled "The Raven that Refused to Sing and Other Stories" and will follow the release with a world-wide tour.
I plan to attend three of the shows, one being at the iconic San Francisco venue, The Fillmore. Wilson's work is atmospheric, melodic, dark, progressive, beautiful, the list goes on. Engineered by the infamous Alan Parsons (most famous for Pink Floyd's, "Dark Side of the Moon") this album boasts not only an exciting register of esteemed musicianship, but also enlists the artwork of Danish artist Halo Mueller, in it's accompanying 128 page hardback book.
Here we have the current tour poster. I love Mueller's artwork, and while I don't think "better" is the appropriate term. I am choosing to accept the challenge of creating something different and unique, further exploring the concept of "The Raven that Refused to Sing."
