This is the fourth solo album from former GALAHAD member and bassist Lee Abraham and a host of guest players from the world of Progressive Rock! Given the ample musical and stylistic variety on Distant Days this is a disc that will have plenty of shelf-life.
The third solo CD by Lee Abraham that features excellent musicians from the Prog scene including John Mitchell (It Bites), Simon Godfrey (Tinyfish), Jem Godfrey (Frost), Gary Chandler (Jadis), Steve Thorne, Sean Filkins, Simon Nixon, Dean Baker & Gerald Mulligan. His latest effort opens promising with a Pink Floyd-like intro and lots of distorted guitar, swiftly turning into a Dream Theater-like continuation in the first real track Face The Crowd. The tracks have power and melody throughout - this is a great release!
Lee Abraham's latest album - modern British Progressive rock with many luminaries from the progressive scene. Lee Abraham is a British bass player and multi instrumentalist. Was the bass player for Galahad from 2005 to 2009…
The excellent album from '08, of Galahad bass player and a guitarist Steve Kingman. The melodic soft prog-rock, played very well, the drums recorded and engineered by Karl Groom (THRESHOLD). The CD contains heavier tracks and guitar ballads, as well as nice melodies for fans from ASIA to BJH, Supertramp or ballad CAMEL.
In 2004 Lee released "View From The Bridge" again as a self release which included contributions from Karl Groom (Threshold, Shadowland) and Martin Orford (IQ, Jadis, Big Big Train). "View from the Bridge" shows that his maturation continues as a songwriter. In the tradition of Neal Morse, Lee combines catchy pop hooks with progressive instrumental passages, resulting in a nice stylistic blend - not too proggy for song-based music aficionados, but plenty proggy for the prog snobs.
A movie on the life of the renowned Bruce Lee, especially his relationship with his mistress (played by Betty Ting Pei, who was Lee's mistress in real life and in whose apartment he died).
If you've been wondering what's been keeping Lee Southall busy all this time, you're about to find out. On Iron In The Fire, the former The Coral guitarist brings the outside world in through quality songmanship - showing that whichever paths our lives may take, our exposure to the elements will remain the same. Taking an alternative path to each of his Coral cohorts, when the group disbanded in 2012, Lee left behind his native seaside town of Hoylake on the Wirral, and moved 75 miles inland to the 'tops' of Hebden Bridge. In search of a fresh start, the dramatic wind-beaten and changeable landscape gave Lee time and space to craft Iron In The Fire but equally, it lingers like the taste of the salty air hanging above the coast. 'I've lived by the sea and watched weather roll in, but it's the same in Hebden, watching storms roll over the moors,' Lee says. 'The place is changing all the time and sometimes looks a bit chocolate box, village of the year, but when the tourists are gone it can feel like the set of a 1970s BBC folk horror - a bit Wicker Man.'
