“This is the BEST album I have worked on since ELO’s Out Of The Blue’
– Bev Bevan of Quill & co-founder of ELO
Whilst it’s been a quiet year for Jeff Lynne and Roy wood, the same cannot be said for Joy Strachan-Brain, Quill and Bev Bevan as they have used the time to meticulously prepare their latest studio album Riding Rainbows. So when The Move and ELO co-founder says that “this is the best album I have played on since ELO’s Out Of The Blue’ then fans and followers are being given good advice to check it out for themselves as they would doubtless be impressed with this 12-song opus by Quill with a little help from an inspired roster of guest contributors including Andy Fairweather Low, Nick Pentelow (Wizzard), John Lodge (The Moody Blues), Chris Norman (Smokie), Louis Clark Jr. (The Orchestra) and Richard Bailey (Magnum).
Riding Rainbows is an album reflective of Quill’s renowned energetic and polished lived performances with ten songs a collaborative effort between Bev, Joy and lead guitarist Lee Evans, and finds the septet in great form, whatever the choice of musical mood is. The sublime vocals of Joy Strachan-Brain demonstrate an amazing versatility and the articulate arrangements by Loui Clark Jr. are sure to please fans of the classic ELO sound.
Quill are a seven-piece outfit who blend rock, folk and Americana styles with a unique blend of drums, percussion, violin and vocal harmonies.
“Riding Rainbows” is a fine album worthy of chart implications and many a collection, excellently produced by Alan Caves. Truly a pleasure to listen to, review and recommend.” ?????
