Marti Pellow is a Scottish singer, who is best known as the lead vocalist of the band ‘Wet Wet Wet’. He is one of the founding members of the band and remained its lead singer until its eventual split in 2017. Born and raised in Clydebank, Scotland, Marti first became interested in music around the age of seven. He talked to his father about his plans of becoming a musician, but it did not go well, as his father wanted him to join the construction business. In 1982, at the age of 17, Martin started his band with three of his high school friends. It was named ‘Vortex Motion’, but was later rechristened ‘Wet Wet Wet’. In 1987, the soft rock band released their debut album ‘Popped In Souled Out’, which became quite successful. They released six popular albums until 1997, when the band split. However, they reformed in the early 2000s, but failed to reprise their earlier success. In 2007, they released their last album together ‘Timeless’ before splitting again in 2017. In 2001, Marti released his debut solo album ‘Smile’ and has also been working as a solo musician since then.
