Solstice sign with GEP for new album 'Sia'

GEP are delighted to announce we'll be working with Solstice to release their new album 'Sia' (pronounced 'She-er', Scotts Gaelic for 'Six').

GEP's Mike Holmes:"I was so pleased when Andy agreed to work with us - it feels right to be working with them again nearly 40 years down the line. One of IQ 's first support slots at the old Marquee in Wardour Street was with Solstice and they were always such a friendly and supportive bunch, I'm really glad we can help get the new music out there with them. I've been listening to the work-in-progress songs from the new album and I really think it's some of the best stuff they've ever written, and new vocalist Jess is just perfect for them".

Solstice main man Andy Glass: "We are so excited to be joining the GEP family of artists. It feels like finally re-joining close friends whose long journeys began in the same place but led down different tracks. Apart from being the natural home for Solstice, GEP have an incredible team committed to bringing great music to the world's finest audience and we can't wait to work with them on the new album! So, a huge thank you to Mike Holmes and all at GEP for having faith and signing Solstice. We 're literally buzzing about this music, recorded with our amazing new vocalist Jess Holland, and truly believe fans of prog and beyond will agree it's our best work to date!"

'Sia' will be released on GEP in late October/early November.

Rain sign with GEP

GEP are really pleased to announce we’ll be working with old friends John Jowitt and Andy Edwards in their new venture Rain to release their debut album ‘Singularity’.

The complete Rain line-up is:

Rob Groucutt - Vocals, Keys, Guitar
Andy Edwards - Drums
John Jowitt - Vocals, Bass
Mirron - Vocals, Guitar

John Jowitt: “It’s been about ten years since I played with Andy, in both IQ and Frost - it’s a really instinctual rhythm section. With Rain, Andy has had the chance to show what an all-round musician he is. Rob and Mirron are both amazing musicians, songwriters and singers, and it’s just a great combination. I’m really pleased that our old friends at GEP have shown faith in the band - it’s one of those albums that I would have bought if I’d not been on it. It’s prog, Jim, but not as we know it.”.

Andy Edwards: “Rain isn't a project, it's a band and we want to make more and more music. This is the dream team as far as I am concerned - everyone is very talented but in different areas and so the whole is greater than the parts. And Rain is pure prog too, no ifs or buts, it does everything it says on the tin. This album has been one of the easiest albums I have ever made, everyone loves what everyone else does, it's been a joy having all these ideas come in!

‘Singularity’ will be released on GEP in November.

See the recent ‘lockdown live’ video of ‘Devils will Reign’ from the album.
