Russian progressive rock band iamthemorning have been at the forefront of the symphonic rock scene for nearly a decade now, and a lot of the reason for the band’s success lies with their pianist, Gleb Kolyadin, whose composing style reminds me of a lot of bands from the 1970s with far better recording studio access.
This is Gleb’s solo debut record, which was released in 2018. The music is as dense as it is with iamthemorning, but there is a more varied cast of prog rock superstars participating here.
The personnel on this album are:
Gleb Kolyadin – grand piano, keyboards
Gavin Harrison – drums
Nick Beggs – bass
Theo Travis – flute, saxophones
Vlad Avy – guitars
Evan Carson – bodhran and percussion
Grigorii Osipov – vibraphone, marimba, glockenspiel
Iliia Diakov – violin
Alexander Peresypkin – cello
Grigory Voskoboynik – double bass
Tatiana Dubovaya – vocals
Svetlana Shumkova – hang drum, spoken vocals
