Also Eden are a 5-piece South-West UK progressive rock band comprising vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass and drums.
Influenced by traditional progressive rock music such as Genesis and Yes along with the more modern progressive sounds of Porcupine Tree and the Flower Kings, the band was initially formed as a recording project in 2005 by Huw Lloyd-Jones (vocals) and Ian Hodson (keyboards/vocals).
With the addition of Simon Rogers (guitars/vocals), Ralvin Thomas (bass) and Mark Hall (drums), the band sound began to take evolve, culminating in the 2006 release " About Time ". About Time has since received many favourable reviews, and the band's live appearances helped win new audiences both in the UK and on the Continent following live performances at Summers End Festival 2005 and 2006, and ProgFarm (Bakeveen, Holland) in 2006.
The band underwent some personnel changes due to personal and work commitments in 2007, and recruited Steve Byrne (drums) and Steve Dunn (bass/vocals). This line-up performed at Summer's End, Progfarm and ProckFest (Bunde, Germany) and these performances have enhanced Also Eden's profile to a new audience. Also Eden have since parted with Steve Byrne, but are busy writing and recording their second album (due for release in March 2008) and are very excited by the new sound and change of direction" and the prospect of live work in 2008.
