There was this British band that I came in contact with because of their 2014 album 'Land of Shadows' and, impressed as I was, I got The Gift their first gig abroad in Holland. Now I've arranged a 2017 gig because of this new album 'Why The Sea Is Salt'. Utterly, utterly beautiful. Dramatic verses and stunning compositions brings one back to your progressive heart and soul. Guesting Phillips and Hackett.
Grab your headphones and follow my suggestion to buy it. And I urge you to visit one of the gigs they will do in the UK, Holland -in February and September- and Oslo Norway, with Magic Pie in March the next year! Because LIVE The Gift is TWICE as good.
First on the opening track 'At Sea' with some wonderful piano by Gabriele Baldocci, followed by a cracking 20 minute epic called 'All These Things'. And, apart from the lyrics, you can take "All These Things" musically literally as a series of prog styles will pass by to caress your ears. You will be thrilled. Please enjoy The Gift.
