Proximity & Chance considers how the earth was perfectly placed in its distance from the sun. In this case, proximity was key to how our world formed and allowed life to flourish. It looks at the ideas of human inheritance. With all the events and possibilities in our long evolution, it is amazing to think that we have all shared our lives under one sun. And just like with our early ancestors we do look out into infinite space and wonder.

The album features contributions from an array of Prog luminaries;

  • ·        Shaun Holton, Peter Jones, Sally Minnear - vocals
  • ·        Vikram Shankar - keyboards
  • ·        Dave Brons, Luke Machin – guitar
  • ·        John Hackett - flute

‘For this set of compositions, I wanted to experiment at fully integrating an orchestral soundscape into a rock format. So often orchestral sounds are used as replacements for existing synths and keyboards. I decided to have them at the forefront and play a leading role. For other songs I wanted a harder rock edge so, the album has plenty of contrasts.
When starting this project, I was committed to making the songs as ‘entertaining’ as I could. Hopefully that feeling communicates to the listener’, says Holden.
