BREAKING NEWS UPDATE*
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.
