The new band of IONA founder member DAVE BAINBRIDGE, bringing together music from Dave’s solo releases, including his epic and critically acclaimed latest album ‘Celestial Fire’ along with music from the Iona canon. Featuring the wonderful voice of Sally Minnear (Lord of the Dance).
“Soaring guitar passages, stunning keyboard work, and inspirational waves of orchestral prog… Bainbridge gives us moments of startling musical fury giving way to pastoral acoustic moments… Celestial Fire’s sweeping, often majestic music combined with the thoughtful and literate lyrics… More than once I had tears in my eyes, and that’s enough for me – Bert Saraco www.tollbooth.org
“Dave’s fluid, emotional guitar playing, epic keyboard work and expansive compositions combine into one of this generation’s most powerful and original musical voices.” – John Kellogg (producer – Chicago, Foreigner, Black Crows, Deep Purple, ELP etc)
“Dave Bainbridge is a genius of immeasurable proportions… working with artists as varied as Buddy Guy, Jack Bruce and IONA. If you are unfamiliar with him it’s time to make amends. Trust me.”- Nick Beggs (Steve Wilson, Steve Hackett etc, etc)
“Dave is the worlds most underrated guitarist AND keyboardist in any genre; and this spectacular album (Celestial Fire) proves it. If this doesn’t rocket him into the Prog firmament, then I’m a girl from Surrey.” – Troy Donockley (Nightwish, The Bad Shepherds)
