THE NEAL MORSE BAND

An Evening of Innocence and Danger

Neal Morse’s career path is full of unexpected twists and turns, sudden changes and pleasant surprises—much like the epic progressive rock compositions for which he has become known. In 2014 Neal was remarkably prolific, marking milestones both in the studio and on the road with the multiple bands he’s a part of.

In January, the progressive rock “supergroup” Transatlantic featuring Neal, Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, formerly Dream Theater), Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings) and Pete Trewavas (Marillion) released their critically acclaimed fourth studio recording. “Kaleidoscope” was wildly embraced by the band’s rabid fan base, with Prog! magazine heralding it “Album of the Year” in Orange Amplification’s 2014 Progressive Music Awards. Morse, Stolt and Trewavas performed at the awards ceremony and graciously accepted the award in the company of fellow prog luminaries Peter Gabriel, Rick Wakeman and Fish.

Transatlantic supported the album with 27 stops across the globe, including a few unforgettable ship performances as part of the Progressive Nation at Sea cruise, where on one special night the band backed original Yes vocalist Jon Anderson for a handful of classic Yes renditions. The highly successful tour was filmed, recorded and documented in three formats as “KaLIVEoscope” (available as Ltd. Edition 2DVD+3CD+BluRay Box Set | DVD+3CD Special Edition Digipak | standalone BluRay).

In between Transatlantic’s studio and live recordings, Morse released “Songs From November,” a “singer-songwriter 'feel good' album" full of strong melodies and powerfully personal stories. It was a hard right turn from the progressive leanings of Transatlantic, but nonetheless well received and reviewed by those open to a more stripped down, direct approach to melody.
