Thank you to Jerry Ewing and all the staff at PROG Magazine (UK) for featuring the Counterpoint track “Summit” on their “Issue 76 One For The Vine” Covermount CD Sampler, included with their Spring 2017 Issue!
Sound of Contact / Dave Kerzner Band‘s multi-talented Matt Dorsey was the guest guitarist solo on this track. It’s been reported by many people that “Summit” is one of their favorite tracks on the album.
Janet Krier Riccobono‘s husband Rob Shannon took the band photo that was used for the band bio on the CD Covermount page, and Denise Romano Bright took the RoSfest band photo that was used for the 1/2 page promotional ad (partnered with the 2017 ProgStock Festival) for the upcoming CircuLive::Majestik double CD/DVD, out via PledgeMusic later this year!

Harmonix Fest will take place on Sunday, June 25, 2017 at the Robin 2 in Bilston. The evening event will include performances from the Prog Award-nominated Circuline, as well as France’s Telescope Road and Birmingham trio Oktopus. IO Earth are confirmed as the headliners and it’ll be new vocalist Rosanna Lefevre’s UK debut with the band. The British proggers have even hinted that they might preview some new material from their fourth studio album, due out at the end of 2017.
IO Earth co-founder Dave Cureton says: “We are so proud to be able to put on this event and we are sure the IO Earth family are going to love it.”

Marillion graced the cover with a 12-page article, and other features included Barclay James Harvest, Aisles, The Pineapple Thief, Russian Circles, Dream The Electric Sleep, Wolverine, and Ashley Hutchings.
Thank you so much to Jerry Ewing, Rich Wilson, and everyone at PROG Magazine!
Thank you so much to Jerry Ewing and Matt Parker for the great review of “Counterpoint” in PROG Magazine Issue 68, featuring Jon Anderson as the 2016 “Prog God”!
“Feels tighter than a duck’s hindquarters……healthy doses of Yes, Rush, and Gentle Giant, but there are also creeping, Wilson-esque atmospherics, cinematic soundscapes and modern tonal beef…..powerful harmony vocal arrangements…..the bevy of guest guitarists…..an intriguing, impactful record that spans the classic and modern prog worlds.”
