Hi fellow proggers. Well i'm new here but thought i'd just jump straight in and let folks know what i'm about. I'm possibly setting myself up for a fall, as i've been looking at the forum all afternoon, and i've noticed there's some ... well ... people who know how to speak their mind. :) But sod it. Here's a link to a teaser of my new album which is the first prog album i've made in a 20 year song writing period. Midlife crisis? Lol maybe, but here goes.
Thanks to anyone who takes the time to listen and I look forward to getting involved in this forum. Cheers

Great stuff! How much of this is you (what instruments, writing...), how much is collaboration?

Thank you. :) It's all me. Wrote it, played it, sang it and recorded it in my antiquated studio in my back bedroom. :) Guess I'm a bit of a loner. Lol

Some nice music. It reminds me of recent Steve Hackett in places. Thanks for sharing!

Recording a prog album for your midlife crisis is a lot better than some of the alternatives. :)

Thank you Soc Prof. Well spotted, I'm a huge Hackett fan, plus I have a sustainiac on my guitar. Just hope I haven't plageourised. :)

Really nice. I like the finger style guitar at about 4:40, that was really a nice contrast to the electric instruments.

Wonderful stuff! This is just the sort of thing I enjoy. Please let us know how to go about obtaining this great music (legally, of course).
