IO Earth

The brainchild of long time friends and writing duo Dave Cureton and Adam Gough, IO Earth came into being as a challenge they gave themselves to write an album of music that was truly unique. That album exploded onto the progressive rock scene in 2009 and was instantly branded one of the most important releases of the decade.

The brainchild of long time friends and writing duo Dave Cureton and Adam Gough, IO Earth came into being as a challenge they gave themselves to write an album of music that was truly unique. That album exploded onto the progressive rock scene in 2009 and was instantly branded one of the most important releases of the decade.

Truly genre defying and impossible to categorise, the IO Earth debut album blended styles, ideas and emotions seamlessly into almost 100 minutes of music the likes of which had never been heard before. Starting with a seven minute piano and string piece entitled simply "Introduction", this debut album is set to surprise the listener with each new track. Immediately following the first piece is a guitar melody based tune reminiscent of Vai and Satriani, although the way in which Cureton approaches the performance sidesteps with ease the usual overplaying that can be found in any piece with such influences. The rest of the album continues on a journey of musical discovery, calling upon rock, jazz, dance, ambient, electronica, classical and other styles and blending them together into one cohesive and innovative whole. « hide
