Ray Wilson | Makes Me Think Of Home OUT NOW



Makes Me Think Of Home, the 6th solo studio album from former Stiltskin and Genesis frontman, Ray Wilson, is out now.

Makes Me Think Of Home is a mix of pop, rock and prog which showcases Ray’s remarkable voice.  This release comes hot on the heels of Song For A Friend, an acoustic album released earlier this year and which got a great review here at rockgig.co.uk.

The title track sees Ray looking back to his days living in Scotland, a country he left after finding love with a Polish dancer.  He moved to Poznan 8 years ago.  The album also contains subtle humour;  especially in “Amen To That”.  

The album also touches on complex contemporary Scottish issues such as The Scottish Referendum with "They Never Should Have Sent You Roses”, exploring how it divided families and a nation.   

Widespread alcoholism, which affected one of Ray's close family members, is challenged in "The Next Life”, and having to fight these demons alone in "Anyone Out There".   He also pays homage to one of the world’s best-loved cartoon strips with “Calvin and Hobbes”.

Reflecting on his latest work, Ray says,Makes Me Think of Home encompasses the joy of freedom we have all come to enjoy and perhaps take for granted as well as the fear of solitude. It highlights the many imperfections that make us special and reminds us not to fear them, but to embrace them. In the words of Leonard Cohen. "There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in".
