Hi everyone, it’s been a crazy action-packed autumn season!  I hope you have had a good three months.

I’ve been working like mad with my modern melodic cinematic progressive rock original band, Circuline, and we’ve been writing, rehearsing, and recording in the studio.  Circuline had some live gigs in November, and have our debut album release scheduled for March 2015.  Circuline also has a whole bunch of cool things happening in 2015.  Please check out the Circuline website, sign up for the mailing list, and you’ll get a free song as soon as it’s ready: http://CirculineMusic.com/

I also returned to finishing my next solo CD – which should be released in December – just a few weeks away!  I’ll let you know as soon as it’s available!

 

Andrew Colyer – 2014 Summer Update

Hi everyone, it’s been a busy summer!  I hope you are all doing well.

In May I was asked to join one of the newer International Progressive Rock bands (I’m not at liberty to say just yet) as a touring member, on keyboards and vocals.  The promise was to open up for a certain Big Famous Band across North America for their two-month summer tour in July and August.  How exciting!

With such an offer on the table, I rearranged my summer schedule, and spent six weeks in May and June working on the entire set list.  The tour with the Big Famous Band fell through, and the band that asked me to join went on hiatus.  Brutal!!

I returned to finishing my next solo CD – which should be released in October – just a few weeks away!  I also returned to my modern melodic cinematic progressive rock original band, Circuline, which had been put on hold, and resumed writing, rehearsing, and recording in the studio.  Circuline has some upcoming live gigs in November, and have our debut album release scheduled for December.  Circuline also has a “House of Prog” Radio Interview scheduled for December.  Please check out the Circuline website, sign up for the mailing list, and you’ll get a free song as soon as it’s ready:  http://CirculineMusic.com/

Hope to see you soon!

Oblivion Sun (former members of Happy the Man) Offers Keyboard Spot to Andrew Colyer

Oblivion Sun is the brainchild of Frank Wyatt and Stanley Whitaker, founding members of 70’s Arista recording artists Happy The Man.  HTM reformed in 1999 to headline Nearfest 2000 and they released their first CD in almost 25 years, “The Muse Awakens” in 2004.

After several different lineups, iterations, and groups, Frank and Stan emerged with a new band…Oblivion Sun.  The ensemble features the compositional and performance skills of Stan Whitaker on guitar and vocals, Frank Wyatt on keyboards and reeds, Bill Brasso on drums, and David Hughes on bass and vocals.  They have released two albums, both of which garnered great reviews and new fans worldwide.  When their excellent keyboardist left the band, there was a void that needed to be filled…here’s where Andrew Colyer enters the picture…keep reading…

Oblivion Sun headlined the U.S. progressive rock festival RoSfest in 2010, and in 2013 headlined at ProgDay (North Carolina) and the New Jersey ProgHouse.  They plan to tour in the U.S. and are looking towards Europe in 2015. They are currently fine tuning a live performance set that will combine music from both Oblivion Sun albums and some prime cuts from the Happy the Man days.

After meeting drummer Bill Brasso on the 2013 Cruise to the Edge, then meeting Frank and  Mindy Wyatt on the 2014 Cruise to the Edge and them getting to see Andrew play, the Oblivion Sun band has offered Andrew to join the band as a second keyboard player!  Rehearsal dates for next month are now scheduled at Frank’s studio in Pennsylvania!  More great news to come – watch this space……
