“Circuline’s new album, their second effort, Counterpoint, shows the evolution of this band from its primordial beginnings to a very advanced stage of cinematic progressive music. The balance between extreme instrumental and vocal gymnastics has been harnessed and the results are clearly evident. This band is a maturing organism that is evolving into a juggernaut, not only in the progressive music genre, but in the general music scene. I’m not sure I can even handle what the third release may bring!” — Marty Dorfman (AKA The Prog Doctor), House of Prog

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!
