Circuline – One Wish [Official Video]

“One Wish” – Music by Andrew Colyer, Darin Brannon, and Bill Shannon. Lyrics and vocal melodies by Randy McStine. Additional vocal harmonies by Andrew Colyer, Natalie Brown, and William Spillane.

Once I laid my head
On stones of ice, my bed
I turned, then looked, and said
“I have no reason, I have no right…”
And turned out the light

I was slow to try
My mind could not reply
The truth outcast from the lie
Making a difference or hiding the blame
It all depends on the frame

The big wheel goes round and round
Spinning until we hit the ground

If I had one wish…

The big wheel goes round and round
Spinning until we hit the ground
I turn water into sound
But it’s gone and never found

If I had one wish…

~

What do you get when you take two theatrical lead vocalists, a keyboard player from Juilliard, a musical savant playing guitar, and a drummer with progressive rock in his DNA? The new modern ProgRock band Circuline.

Performing original and classic progressive rock, Circuline was founded in 2014 when former progressive rock tribute band Downing Grey members Andrew Colyer (keyboards, vocals), Bill Shannon (guitars, vocals), and Darin Brannon (drums, percussion) had a burning desire to write original material. Lead vocalists Billy Spillane and Natalie Brown were up for the challenge, having performed in countless venues as singers, actors, dancers, and rock musicians.

Circuline’s debut album (to be released April 2015) will feature Guest Artists Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact) on bass, Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) as a songwriter and vocalist, and Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius) on electric violin. Paul Ranieri (Shadow Eden), seen in the above video, is currently the touring bassist with the band.

Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) to perform on Circuline Debut Album

Randy-Mcstine-2014-10-v1

Circuline is excited and proud to announce that Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) will be performing on the Debut Album, slated for release in December 2014.

Lo-Fi Resistance is the creation of 26 year-old guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter Randy McStine.  Founded in 2009, Lo-Fi Resistance has released three albums highlighting a striking blend of progressive rock musicality, melodic pop sensibility, and among many other attributes, a strong penchant for songcraft and experimentation.  In the studio, McStine has collaborated with members of King Crimson, Porcupine Tree, Spock’s Beard, King’s X, and more to bring a special quality to these songs. The latest album, The Age Of Entitlement, is a true solo venture, with McStine taking on all instrument and production duties. Aside from Lo-Fi Resistance, McStine can be seen on tour handling guitar and vocals for Sound Of Contact and The Pink Floyd Experience.

Circuline is happy and excited to be working with Randy as a singer-songwriter, contributing lyrics, melodies, and vocal harmonies for their Debut Album.
