Wilson Noble is a Scottish Singer-Songwriter, Guitarist, Producer, and Loop Artist from the North-East of Scotland. Combining conscious and cultural themes – and created intentionally to take the listener on a journey – his signature live acoustic roots music sound is a cross-genre blend that skillfully captures elements of folk, rock, indigenous, world, and celtic music.
An acoustic singer-songwriter at heart Wilson’s core influences are Xavier Rudd, Newton Faulkner, and John Martyn. His guitar style, incorporating the extended use of altered tunings, lends inspiration from Australian roots artist John Butler and the late English folk guitarist John Renbourn. Wilson, a definite character with a story to tell, brings his unique twist to the human condition, and living as a Scottish man. His music often covers socially conscious themes – like spirituality, environmentalism, humanity, and personal empowerment.
HUMAN, Wilson’s fourth independent studio album, is his debut utilising looped arrangements in a studio environment. The album, scheduled for release in Summer 2019, was originally created and handed in as his final project for his Masters music degree in January, 2019. Produced by Wilson Noble, and covering the universal theme of ‘Humanity’, HUMAN is both a classic Wilson Noble album and a natural development of sound and complexity. The record comprising of welcoming new songs, culturally themed poetry, and uniquely atmospheric soundscapes is created to take the listener on a journey into the depth, subtley and soulful artistry of this evolving musician.
Over the the past fifteen years Wilson has performed at events all around Scotland and the UK, including Celtic Connections, XpoNorth, Belladrum Festival, and at venues including The Lemon Tree/Aberdeen, Adrian Boult Hall/Birmingham, and Lyth Arts Centre/Wick (full performance list can be found here). Currently Wilson manages himself as an independent artist, and is preparing a Scottish tour (Summer 2019) to promote his forthcoming studio album, HUMAN.
