Elaine Samuels and Kindred Spirit - Phoenix Rising
Re-released May 3rd

We are very proud to add British progressive folk-rock band  Kindred Spirit to our roster of artists. The band re-release their magnificent album Phoenix Rising on May 3rd.

The album features the powerful, varied and perceptive song-writing and lead vocals of Elaine Samuels, plus expansive arrangements, featuring lead instrumentalists Gavin Jones (violin, recently replaced by the brilliant Martin Ash) and Catherine Dimmock (flute). Other features of the band include the solid rhythm section of Mike Hislop (bass) and the legendary Les Binks (ex Judas Priest, drums).

This is superb, emotive and sometimes mystical music in the grand tradition of FAIRPORT CONVENTION, JETHRO TULL, RENAISSANCE, CURVED AIR, MOSTLY AUTUMN and SOLSTICE amongst many others.

Elaine Samuels is a singer / songwriter who has been performing professionally since 1993.  The band were formed in the late 90s and give Elaine's songs the big, progressive arrangements they deserve.  That said, the album still offers plenty of variation from the glorious, Renaissance-style "The Phoenix" to the heavy rock of "Feed the Fire", "Let the Music Set You Free" which recalls early Solstice and the near pop of "Life is a Circus". This is as good a progressive folk album as you will hear.

The band headlined the first "Four Play Prog Festival" in April 2016
