This Winter Machine
This Winter Machine formed in mid 2016 after a series of ads led to jams that quickly turned into writing sessions. Members have shared a stage with artists as diverse as Marillion and Uriah Heep, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens and Uli Jon Roth. The debut album ‘The Man Who Never Was’ was released in Jan 2017 to widespread critical acclaim and a great response from the public.
They were nominated in the Best Newcomers category at the Classic Rock Society annual awards and have also been included in many ‘Names To Watch’ lists for 2017. They released their second album ‘A Tower of Clocks’ in June 2019.
With support from:
The Gift are a symphonic progressive rock band that formed in London in 2003.
The Gift’s eclectic approach encompasses Golden Era prog, hard rock, ambient, Celtic and folk elements, all supported by lyrics which refuse to dabble in cosmic nothings or sub Tolkein. The music might invoke the sounds of the ’70s, but the words are firmly rooted in the now.
I Am The Manic Whale
I Am The Manic Whale was formed in Reading, England in 2015.
Our debut album, Everything Beautiful In Time was released in December 2015 and our second, Gathering the Waters was released in October 2017.
“A loose-fluffy symphonic retro neo-progressive rock mix”
We make progressive rock, with a sensual chic twist… Let’s misbehave!
Formed in The Hague and we like to describe our music as the sexy version of progressive rock.
