Circuline is excited to announce the last of the Guest Guitarists for the second album, “Counterpoint”.
Guest #7 of 7: Doug Ott (Enchant). Doug is the co-leader, chief songwriter, and rocking guitarist for the progressive rock band Enchant. Enchant have spent more than 25 years in the progressive rock scene, with an 11-year hiatus in studio album discography between 2003 and 2014. They returned to the studio and live performance with their recent release, “The Great Divide”.
Andrew Colyer met Enchant keyboardist Bill Jenkins on the Moody Blues Cruise and Cruise to the Edge in 2014. Bill was performing with Sound of Contact, and Andrew was performing with the Prog Rock Orchestra. Bill and Andrew met up again in 2015 at the 12th international Rites of Spring festival (RoSfest) where Enchant was performing, and got introduced to Doug. Andrew and Darin Brannon were impressed with Enchant’s live performance and new album, and when Circuline needed another guitarist for their second album, they called Doug.
Doug is contributing guitar tracks to the song “Who I Am”. We’re excited and grateful to be working with him!
Thank you so much to Big Bang Magazine (France) for the great review of Circuline’s debut album in Issue 94!
“Remarkable [and] skillful musicians…..deserve(s) that we pay closer attention…..untimely musical vibes…..prolific ideas, like a breath of fresh air…..these exciting 40 minutes…..a duo of convincing vocal performers…..these artists refuse all labeling and don’t take the easy route…..their music, defined by their soul just like ‘melodic and cinematic rock for the 21st century’…..a delightful vocal performance (Silence Revealed)…..prog AOR accents, cinematic landscapes and instrumental fusions…..variety [that] thrives of rigor and intensity…..a devilishly successful album…..perfect in its genre…..”
Special thanks to Olivier Pelletant for such a great review!
