MUSIC & RELEASES

Touchstone were formed in 2003, releasing their debut ‘Mad Hatters‘ EP and subsequently going on to release four studio albums: Discordant Dreams, Wintercoast, The City Sleeps (SPV/Steamhammer) and Oceans Of Time (HNE Recording/Cherry Red Records), plus two live albums, with a line-up that included keyboard player/vocalist Rob Cottingham and vocalist Kim Seviour. Along the way, the band picked up accolades such as ‘Best New Band’ at the Classic Rock Society Awards in 2008, and received a nomination for the ‘New Blood’ Award in the inaugural 2012 Progressive Music Awards.
To date they have made a series of appearances at festivals such as the Rites of Spring in Philadelphia, CalProg in California and High Voltage Festival in London’s Victoria Park, amongst others, and collaborated with such names asJeremy Irons and Anna-Marie Wayne (actress and daughter of ‘War Of The Worlds’ composer Jeff Wayne).
With a brand new line-up for 2016, ‘Lights From The Sky‘ marks a new chapter for the band, promising a rocky, riff-driven, melodic roller-coaster of catchy tracks with soaring vocals and guitar, with all the delicate nuances that encapsulate their signature sound.
