Lee Abraham – Released new studio album “Distant Days” – Edge of Life Records On 6 February 2014, Lee Abraham releases his new studio album, entitled Distant Days, the follow-up to his 2009 successful solo album Black and White.
Distant Days contains seven new songs – two of them
stunning epic tracks, featuring guest performances from Karl
Groom (Threshold/Shadowland), Dec Burke (Darwin’s
Radio/Frost*/Brave New Sky/Solo), Marc Atkinson (Riversea/Nine Stones Close/Mandalaband/ Solo), John Young (The John Young Band/Lifesigns) and Steve Thorne (Solo).

Lee, former bass player with UK prog band Galahad, was also joined by longtime musical collaborator Gerald Mulligan (Credo) on drums, and other members of his core live band Chris Harrison on guitars, Alistair Begg on bass/Chapman Stick and Rob Arnold on keyboards. Jon Barry and Simon Nixon added their guitar talents and Lee was delighted to welcome Robin Armstrong (Cosmograf) on acoustic guitar and Dave Phillips on backing vocals.
Distant Days spans 60 minutes of new progressive music, covers lyrical topics such as childhood, the oppression of Government authority and the cause of the recent global recession.
Lee says: “Some of the lyrics may sound heavy going, but I wanted to cover subjects that everyone could relate to, especially here in the UK. Recently, we have had a lot of scrutiny of our Government’s behaviour and how it goes about governing us. I also take a look at the financial institutions that are also largely to blame for the recession we’re just trying to sort out. But rest assured, there’s happy stuff in there too!”
Growing as a song-writer and producer, Lee has again called on the prog world to guest on his album to help bring the songs to life. Lee continues: “I am a firm believer in making sure the songs have the best chance to sound great, so that means bringing in the right people to add their talents. All the guests were carefully hand-picked and in some cases, the songs were written with the guest in mind.”
Benefiting from Lee’s strong production, the album was again recorded and mixed by him at his Dockside Studio in Southampton, England. Lee is hoping to take the album out on the road in 2014/15 to give the songs a live airing at festivals and live venues across Europe.
