Rob Reed launches solo album

Rob Reed has released another teaser clip from his solo album Sanctuary, on sale today.

The new clip features the vocals of Angharad Brinn, who also appeared on Reed’s award-winning Kompendium album Beneath The Waves.

The Magenta mastermind devised the work as an entirely one-man project, and planned it as his personal version of Mike Oldfield’s Tubular Bells.

He recently told Prog: “I wanted to play all the instruments, and for them all to be real – no synthesisers. The next four weeks were a bit of a blur as the music just came out. It turned out to be the most enjoyable album I’ve made.”

Sanctuary is available now via Tigermoth Records. Reed appears in the current edition of Prog, on sale now (opens in new tab).

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
