The Gift Album Launch
Sunday 23rd June, Doors: 7pm
The Gift are a London-based rock band, renowned for their melodic, hard hitting and complex music.
They are an unmissable live act, lighting up the stage with passion and commitment.
Until recently, The Gift were regarded by those in the know as ‘the best kept secret’ in progressive rock. Back in 2006, their first album ‘Awake & Dreaming’ wowed the scene with its heady mixture of ‘70s style and contemporary soundscapes. Then there was silence…until the band reformed a few years ago and released 2014’s “Land of Shadows”, an ambitious song suite packed with strong melodies and instrumental ‘tours de force’. Then, in 2016, The Gift released their 3rd album, ‘Why The Sea Is Salt’, which Prog magazine described as a ‘masterpiece of the genre’. Their keysman Gabriele Baldocci is a world renowned classical pianist who is easily the match for a Wakeman or Emerson. Add to this the twin guitar attack of Leroy James and David Lloyd and you have a huge, ornate sound which also rocks very hard. In June this year, The Gift will release their 4th album ‘Antenna’, which promises to be even harder hitting whilst still retaining their signature symphonic sound. The Gift will be performing it plus their best established material all round Europe later in the year.
This event will celebrate the launch of their 4th album, and the unique and talented cellist Jo Quail will open proceedings. It promises to be an unforgettable evening
