Former Black Sabbath and ELO drummer Bev Bevan features on country rock band Quill’s upcoming debut.
Bevan – who toured with Sabbath in the 80s – appears on Brush With The Moon alongside vocalist Joy Strachan-Brain, violin player Kate WcWilliam, percussionist Tim Tandler, bassist Matt Davies, keyboard player Dave Bailey and guitarist Tony Kelsey.
It’s released on June 8 via Cherry Red Records. The music was inspired by Strachan-Brain’s late husband Ben Brain, who penned the songs before his passing in 2012.
Bevan says: “About a year ago I joined Quill as percussionist. It’s great to be doing it live on stage now, and playing drums on some songs too. The lineup has changed since I joined and the band now has a more folk and country rockier edge to it.
“The band is also now concentrating on just theatre shows and festivals. Joy and I are writing songs together and we’re looking forward to recording tracks for another album, to be released later this year.”
