The Gift with special guests EncircledUntil recently, The Gift were regarded by those in the know as ‘the best kept secret’ in progressive rock. Back in 2006, their first album ‘Awake & Dreaming’ wowed the scene with its heady mixture of ‘70s style and contemporary soundscapes. Then there was silence...until the band reformed a few years ago and released 2014’s "Land of Shadows", an ambitious song suite packed with strong melodies and instrumental ‘tours de force’. Then, in 2016, The Gift released their 3rd album, ‘Why The Sea Is Salt’, which Prog magazine described as a ‘masterpiece of the genre’. Their keysman Gabriele Baldocci is a world renowned classical pianist who is easily the match for a Wakeman or Emerson. Add to this the twin guitar attack of Leroy James and David Lloyd and you have a huge, ornate sound which also rocks very hard. In June this year, The Gift will release their 4th album ‘Antenna’, which promises to be even harder hitting whilst still retaining their signature symphonic sound. The Gift will be performing it plus their best established material all round Europe later in the year.

Onstage, The Gift deliver a full on performance. Frontman Mike Morton is a trained actor and he delivers their musical stories with passion and humour. They may well be the most arresting live progressive act in the UK right now. Steve Hackett and Antony Phillips are close friends and supporters of the band, having both contributed to past albums. They each testify to the band’s live power. As Mike says: ‘Don’t come to us for songs about cars and girls."

There is a Progressive Renaissance happening right now and The Gift are at its vanguard.
