What do you get when you take two theatrical lead vocalists, a keyboard player from Juilliard, a guitar-playing musical savant, a bass player from Monster Island, and a drummer with progressive rock in his DNA? The new modern ProgRock band Circuline.
Performers of original cinematic progressive rock, band members founded Circuline in 2014 when former progressive rock tribute band Downing Grey members Andrew Colyer (keyboards, vocals), Bill Shannon (guitars, vocals), and Darin Brannon (drums, percussion) had a burning desire to write original material. Lead vocalists Billy Spillane and Natalie Brown were up for the challenge, having performed in countless venues as singers, actors, dancers, and rock musicians.
Circuline’s debut album “Return” (released April 24, 2015) features guest artists Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact) on bass, Randy McStine (LoFi Resistance) as a songwriter and vocalist, and Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius) on electric violin. Paul Ranieri (Shadow Eden) is currently the bassist for the band.
Circuline has opened for 20year prog veterans Glass Hammer (East Coast U.S. tour), RoSfest 2014 act Elephants of Scotland, and coheadlined the threeday Sonic Voyage Festival with Stratospheerius and Shadow Eden (Top 10 CMJ charting power rock trio).
