Touchstone is Adam Hodgson (guitar/backing vocals), Moo (bass/vocals), Henry Rogers (drums & percussion), Liam Holmes (keys/backing vocals), and a TBA singer!
Touchstone were formed in 2003, releasing their debut Mad Hatters EP and subsequently going on to release four studio albums: Discordant Dreams. Wintercoast, They City Sleeps and Oceans of Time, plus two live albums, with a line-up that included keyboard player/vocalist Rob Cottingham and vocalist Kim Seviour. Along the way, the band picked up accolades such as ‘Best New Band’ at the Classic Rock Society Awards in 2008, and received a nomination for the ‘New Blood’ Award in the inaugural 2012 Progressive Music Awards.
To date they have made a series of appearances at festivals such as the Rites of Spring in Philadelphia, CalProg in California and High Voltage Festival in London’s Victoria Park, amongst others, and collaborated with such names as Jeremy Irons and Anna-Marie Wayne (actress and daughter of ‘War Of The Worlds’ composer Jeff Wayne).
2016 brought them a new line-up and their EP Lights From The Sky marked a new chapter for the band, providing a rocky, riff-driven, melodic roller-coaster of catchy tracks with soaring vocals and guitar, with all the delicate nuances that encapsulate the band’s signature sound.
