Rising US star Stephen Wilson Jr. will be bringing his signature blend of indie, grunge and country to the UK for a headline tour this October before heading on to Europe. Wilson says, “The UK/EU has my heart & we are coming back this autumn for our first headlining tour. A dream that’s suddenly became a reality. My father has passed but his story is alive and well & being told all over the world. Can’t wait to see you all.”

The self-proclaimed ‘Death Cab For Country’ singer also made his UK TV debut on Later… with Jools Holland on Saturday just gone (15th June 2024) performing his song ‘Year to Be Young 1994’ from his debut album “Son Of Dad”, which came out last year via Big Loud Records to much critical acclaim.  It was released five years to the day of his father’s death and the record is a 22-song tribute to Stephen Wilson Sr.   “If you’re lucky enough to have lived, you’re going to grieve something,” Wilson shares. “It is the most human thing we have, and we grieve on a level that is unmatched.”

Wilson, who is known for his rousing and emotive performances, last toured here earlier in 2024 supporting The Cadillac Three plus a performance at the CMA Songwriters Series at London’s O2 as part of the C2C Festival in March.

He recently played ‘Year to Be Young 1994’ on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’.  You can watch the performance below.
