Magenta are a Welsh progressive rock band formed in 1999 by ex-Cyan member Rob Reed. Reed takes his influences from
bands like Genesis, Mike Oldfield, Yes, Eurythmics and Björk.
Although heavily influenced by progressive rock, Reed is a professional songwriter and has done many other projects for both
film and television. The most successful of these projects was called Trippa, featuring Christina Booth on vocals and Rob
Reed on guitars and keyboards. Reed asked Christina to be lead vocalist for a progressive rock project he had in mind, and the
initial ideas for Magenta were born. Booth went on to guest on a number of Cyan albums.
