More information: ĎEcho Rainí is a new exciting side project from UK progressive rock musician, Lee Abraham. Lee is well known on the progressive rock scene both for his critically acclaimed solo albums as well as his work as guitarist with UK prog veterans, Galahad.
Echo Rain focusses on shorter, guitar instrumental rock songs and the craft of great guitar tone. Resisting the urge to produce a shred fest of guitar rock, Lee uses the guitar to interpret song writing with his well known sense of melody, combining powerful rock riffs and soaring leads but with melodic chord structures and choruses.
"After 18 months buried deep in developing and producing a progressive rock concept album and coming off a 12 month gigging cycle with Galahad promoting the Seas Of Change album, I really wanted to try a new fresh direction. As most of my followers know, Iím not much of a lead singer and use guest vocalists for my albums, so the obvious thing to do was to try my hand at writing some instrumental pieces...and Western Skies was born!"
Lee is once again joined by long-term musical partner Gerald Mulligan on drums and piano on the title track was handled by Lee Abraham regular, Rob Arnold.
4 track EP in jewel case with 4 page booklet.
