Mostly Autumn family affairs.


Newsletter www.mostlypink.net July 2012.



Some collected familiar news and assorted talks:

Mostly Autumn.
Mostly Autumn released their "The Ghost Moon Orchestra", and yep another highlight in their career. Olivia sings so wonderful, almost unbelieveable and Bryans guitar work is more as Gilmouresque. It became a bit darker, maybe a bit harder, but sometimes the old good fashioned stuff we're known from Mostly Autumn. Wrote some more words about it at my site.
This week 2.000 people got the special edition with disc 2; semi-acoustic songs, some old some new songs, and yes "i like". Looking out to see the band in September in Verviers and Zoetermeer (DVD recording!) and laters with 3 special X-mas gigs in the Netherlands.

Stolen Earth.
After Breathing Space (a band from Olivia and Iain Jennings (keyboards in Mostly Autumn)) splitt up, the other members started Stolen Earth, with the very first singer of Mostly Autumn; Heidi Widdop. Heidi left MA before the first MA album was released. The album "A Far Cry from Home" got interesting tunes, is laid back, with good guitar work, in the vein of Bryan Josh.

Heather Findlay.
The ex-singer form MA went solo as we know, he latest collaboration is with Maidu, a kind of interesting dub-step. Mmm i liked it, but it's a kind of dup step. Only as download available. www.junodownload.com/artists/Maidu/releases/.
With Chris Johnson she is in the final stages of mixing The Heather Findlay Band's 'Kitchen Session' album which will be available on pre-release exclusively from their upcoming shows. They will do a few festivals in the Uk, so please check out the tourdates.

Roger Waters.
Dave Killminster is the bridge to Heather Findlay, he plays in her band, when available, and is Rogers lead-guitarist. And Roger has plans for more touring in 2013 and a new solo album!

Panic Room.
Dave Killminster is the bridge to Ann Marie Helders band, love is the connection between those 2 .. Anyway, Ann and her former band mates from Karnataka and also Mostly Autumn (Gavin Griffiths, the drumer and Ann) have released a new rocky album, called "Skin".

Riversea, is a project of a dear friend of Mostly Autumn; Marc Atkinson. Marc sung backing vocals in MA. He made some solo albums with Gabriel and now with Riversea. Some will know him from the famous Mandalaband. This new album is with Bryan Josh, Olivia and more great muscians. He has a sweet wonderful voice and the music is also a bit laid back, but also exciting. I was very impressed! Art work again from Ed Unitsky.

Speaking about Ed Unitsky; he did the art work for the Dutch band Silhouette. A big sound, but also laid back, 3 male voices and everythings seems to fit. You can listen to the album at: www.progstreaming.com/.
And you can see them live with RPWL: 2 November @ De Lakein @ Helmond NL.
And they'll tour with Landmarq in the UK and next year in Europe ;-)
Added some reviews to my site, please check them out!

I guess i'll set up an competition for the new Mostly Autumn album soon. Will keep you informed, of course.
If you're interested in more good tunes go to DPRP and join the competition of Touchstone; you can win their latest cd + some extra goodies.
Touchstone and the Reasoning are on tour in September as double headliner, i think it's a great combination.
Both are nominated in the New Blood category for the 2012 Progressive Music Awards. awards.progrockmag.com.
The Reasoning finished the recording and mixing of their new album "Adventures In Neverland", this week.
The are giving awat 20 free downloads, please check their website ;-)

An album that cathed my ears was from Frequency Drift called "... laid to rest", it's a bit Mostly Autumnish, with violin and moody atmospheres. It's apperently a new band that is connected to Farmlands (from RPWL). worthed to check out! Thx to Kalle and Bine for pointing me out.


Steve Wilson is working on his live DVD, more news assap, he wil tour with No-man, dates here. And as cream on a rainy ice: in 2013 he'll touring again with an album.
