About Marti Pellow
Marti Pellow: The Voice of Wet Wet Wet
Marti Pellow, born Mark McLachlan on March 23, 1965, in Clydebank, Scotland, is best known as the lead singer of the Scottish pop band Wet Wet Wet. Pellow's soulful voice and charismatic stage presence helped propel the band to international fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Pellow grew up in a working-class family and showed an early interest in music. He formed his first band, Vortex Motion, while still in high school. In 1982, he joined forces with fellow musicians Tommy Cunningham, Graeme Clark, and Neil Mitchell to form Wet Wet Wet.
The band's debut album, "Popped In Souled Out," was released in 1987 and spawned the hit singles "Wishing I Was Lucky" and "Sweet Little Mystery." Their second album, "Holding Back the River," followed in 1989 and included the hit single "Goodnight Girl."
But it was the band's cover of the Troggs' "Love Is All Around" for the soundtrack of the movie "Four Weddings and a Funeral" that catapulted them to global stardom in 1994. The song spent 15 weeks at the top of the UK charts and became one of the biggest-selling singles of all time in the UK.
Despite the band's success, Pellow struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol. He left Wet Wet Wet in 1999 to pursue a solo career and to focus on his recovery. He released his debut solo album, "Smile," in 2001, which included the hit single "Close to You."
Pellow has since released several more solo albums and has continued to tour and perform. He has also appeared in musical theater productions, including "Chicago" and "Blood Brothers."
Throughout his career, Pellow has been praised for his powerful and emotive vocals, as well as his ability to connect with audiences. He has been described as a "natural showman" and a "born entertainer."
Despite his struggles with addiction, Pellow has remained a beloved figure in the Scottish music scene and beyond. He has been honored with numerous awards and accolades, including an honorary degree from the University of the West of Scotland.
As he approaches his 60th birthday, Pellow shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to tour and record, and his fans remain
