PaperSailor is an industrial alt-rock band from multi-instrumentalist Michael Wilson, based in Glasgow, Scotland. Fusing huge riffs & sweeping, synthetic loops & melodies, Michael has crafted a unique style that stands out amongst the crowd, often described as a blend of Nine Inch Nails and Royal Blood.

2023 was an exemplary year for PaperSailor, having supported rising band Mother Vulture for the second time on the GLasgow leg of their "Go Big or GO Home" tour, fellow glasgow-based band Artax for their album launch, and good friends Grey Palm for their EP launch in Newcastle.

April '23 saw PaperSailor embark on their first headline tour. "The Switch Blade Tour" had the band playing to small but raucous crowds in some of the UK's most loved intimate venues, such as Little Buildings in Newcastle and Bristol's popular rock and metal bar The Gryphon.

With two albums under his belt, Michael is well underway with writing album 3, with sights set on another (and bigger) tour in 2024 before recording said third album later in the year.
