#SupportPGHMusic // Exclusively on HughShows Radio streaming at the bottom of the page, enjoy the entire December 13, 2014 concert of HughShows Live at Eide’s Finale featuring mini sets from acoustic and solo versions of my favorite Pittsburgh bands during the marathon 6 hour concert. //

“Folktronica musician Ian Wilson belongs to a new class of singer-songwriters who have exchanged backup bands for loop pedals. Using a combination of keyboard instruments and synthesizers, Ian builds complex, atmospheric layers around deeply personal songwriting. And despite defecting from the classical genre years ago, Ian’s piano has never quite lost the accent—you can tell by the sound of it, it’s not from around here. His debut solo LP, This is Water, was released in May 2012.”

Ian will be hitting Pittsburgh for the first time tomorrow at Howler’s along with support from Mad Rapture and Radio for the Daydreamer. My thanks to Ian for taking a few minutes to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Ian. Glad you’re going to have time to explore our fair city. I just know you’ll dig it!
