Iain Wilson


Iain Wilson is a Glasgow-based singer songwriter, infusing current pop styles with 80s synth. Iain’s musical style draws inspiration from bands such as CHVRCHES and artists like Charli XCX, with his music branching further into a genre that has both unique qualities and yet is familiar to the listener.

Signed under Wee Studio records, based in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Iain has recently released his 9-track debut album “Holding On ‘Til Sunrise”.

The album’s title comes from a lyric taken from the last track of the album “Sunrise”, which works to encapsulate the overall objective of the full body of work – the opportunity to tell the story about the continuous struggles that mental health issues bring. With this final track, there is the hope and light that comes with the sunrise, the dawning of a new day and new promise. The album builds to this moment, with tracks “Faking Smiles” and “Another Mind at War” laying bare the tougher, darker times that mental health can present. Iain wanted to ensure that the album ultimately offered promise and hope, the tracks build through the turmoil and the darkness and move towards a more positive and brighter outcome with “Sunrise”.

The first two singles from this album have catchy pop melodies, whilst the addition of synth provides a distinct edge to the album. His first single release “Reasons Why” featured through BBC Music Introducing early this year and progressed to him recording a live session for BBC nan Gàidheal in April 2020. The follow up to this single, “I Want to Run”, was released on the 15th of May 2020. Both tracks are accompanied by music videos featuring Iain that can be viewed here or on youtube .
