NewEARS Album Of The Month"Stunning symphonic ear candy. The Uncrowned King- Act 1 is the first concept album of a two album search for self/truth. The overall sound and philosophical direction evokes Kansas's Leftoverture- Point of No Return sails alongside Styx Castle Walls. Beau West's soaring lead vocals and mastermind/keyboardist Shane Atkinson are guilty as charged. " o-PA
Evership - The Uncrowned King Act 1
"After seeing the albums interested artwork I was intrigued to give the album a listen and wow, I was blown away. This album has some of the best Neo-Prog I have heard in a very long time. The keyboards are especially fantastic. Each song is perfect or close to being perfect. I would not be surprised if this album ends up being the top album of 2021 since it is just that good. Everyone should hear this album if they want to hear some great Neo-Prog!" DN-PA
"EVERSHIP signed a master stroke with this avant-garde retro-regressive album; mixture of old sounds reshaped to a current and agreed power, bringing in melody, varied neo prog surfing on the dinos of KANSAS, STYX, QUEEN, ROYAL HUNT, ELP, YES see CAMEL. Album recorded on a HARRISON 70's analog console helping in this; magical album which makes regress but which shows that the beautiful synthesized progressive of the old ones is still possible." aPP-PA
Essential Track: (a) Crownshine / (b) Allthetime. "We meet the meat of the album. From here on out, we're treated to auricle delights. Glissading moogs dart and hover like a hummingbird. A lead guitar sings a melodic pattern gavotting with West's golden vocals. More memorable hooks than a Hellraiser horror film. Choir passage and mellotrons. The end of the song had me anticipating the final like I was watching an Olympic ice-skater-duo finish an icy dance program. Majestic climax!" o-PA

Legendary YES vocalist/songwriter Jon Anderson will be touring with The Paul Green Rock Academy starting July 30th!
This Jon Anderson with The Paul Green Rock Academy tour is a resumption of the tradition started in 2005 when Jon toured with the original School of Rock all stars.
These shows, over 30 in total between 2006-2008, were nothing short of magical, and now Jon Anderson returns to continue that magic with a set of Yes Classics, deep cuts, mash ups, and solo works, all with lush arrangements featuring choral singing, horns, and all the other benefits of having a backing band of 25 young musicians.
THE ONE THING ABOUT CREATING MUSIC WITH YOUNG MUSICIANS AND SINGERS IS THE ADVENTURE OF IT ALL..
I SANG AND TOURED WITH THE PAUL GREEN SCHOOL OF ROCK MANY YEARS AGO…IT WAS A MIRACLE FOR ME TO JOIN IN WITH THEIR YOUNG ENERGY…AND LEARN FROM THEM..
NOW HERE WE ARE WITH THE PAUL GREEN ROCK ACADEMY …….
AND AGAIN, THEIR EXCITEMENT AND JOY FOR MAKING MUSIC REALLY MAKES IT ALL WORTHWHILE …. PLUS THEY ARE A REALLY TALENTED BUNCH….
THERE IS A FUTURE IN MUSIC, AND THESE YOUNG SOULS PROVE IT EVERY TIME I HEAR THEM SING AND PLAY…
I KNOW YOU WILL HAVE A WONDERFUL EVENING SPENDING TIME WITH THE FUTURE OF ROCK ‘N’ ROLL..
MANY BLESSINGS…JON ANDERSON..
