Can you tell us a few things about your latest release?
I’d always wanted to make an original prog album and I have now! The title track, in true prog tradition, is a 21 min concept piece (with 9 linked parts) and considers….a time before humans created instruments and “captured” music… The other 3 tracks are shorter, although the final Dawning of Mind has 3 parts My wife, Janice, co-wrote the lyrics with me on Harmony Unchained and wrote all the lyrics on Dawning of Mind. I spent last summer and autumn layering up the various instruments, drum patterns, vocals etc in my wee home studio and my band mate Seth Gardner played live drums on Slowly Slowly and Dawning of Mind. A massive thanks to Steve Plummer (guitarist in my band) for his final mixing and mastering. My son Graham Dickson did the cover artwork. Whilst it hopefully has true prog vibe, there should be something for everyone in the various sections. It is available on all the usual music platforms including Spotify, YouTube, ITunes, Amazon etc.

Any plans for new music or upcoming projects we should know about?
Next up is helping our band bass player John Hatfield with his original album along with our singer and John’s wife, Pauline, who is an incredible singer and I can’t wait to get stuck in.
