Band Info

IOEARTH was voted best new/unsigned band of 2010 in the Classic Rock Presents Prog readers poll

"The amazing musical discovery of 2010"

The music of IO Earth transcends all boundaries and is truly Genre Defying!
An epic symphonic fantasy both powerful and exhilerating. IO Earth have achieved the extraordinary, by fusing different musical styles into an amazing creation. It has aroused the interest of influential DJís and the Media following the release of their self-named debut album 'IO Earth' in 2010.

Dave Cureton and Adam Gough took 3 years to write and produce this amazing album. Their music is complex and intricate whilst also emotive and heart warming. They produce a sound, which is innovative and beautiful, very melodic and easy to listen to.

Dave and Adamís music style was created through their interest in taking slices of styles rarely found together and blending them seamlessly to create some thing new. Whether your tastes lie in many areas of Rock or Dance, Ambient, Classical, Atmospheric or even Jazz, there is something for you to enjoy. The guys have adapted the material for live performances. The flowing layers of the music made this process particularly difficult, but the end product played by just six musicians on stage, is truly breathtaking.

Rick Wakeman: 'Very very very good play'
Geoff Barton: 7/10 Classic Rock Magazine
Progboys: 10/10 'Album of the year'
Classic Rock Society: 'Amazing Album'
Powerplay 'Rock & Metalí Magazine: 9/10

Jerry Ewing Editor of Classic Rock Presents Prog:
'Brilliant, very impressive!'
Henri Strik: Background Magazine: 'Iíve received many CD releases, but non of them sounded as impressive as the debut album of IOEarth'

Richard Thompson Classic Rock Presents Prog:
Thereís a genuine buzz around IOEarth at the moment and itís easy to see why this Birmingham-based band, led by guitarist Dave Cureton and keyboardist Adam Gough, are gaining such high praise. Tonightís set is dazzling, cultivating a wonderful sound that evokes images of deep oceans and high skies. To say that IOEarth have a unique and expansive sound is an understatement.

"Forceful mesh with some intelligent keyboards in which an impressive vocal soars" - Classic Rock Prog MAGAZINE

'....By god do these guys have an ear for the epic and for a melody? I hope these guys get signed up very quick as I canít wait to hear what they have in store for us in the future. In the meantime, Iím going back for another listen to 'Sentimentí!í 9/10
