Circuline

What do you get when you take two theatrical lead vocalists, a keyboard player from Juilliard, a jazz-rock genius on guitar, a bass player from Monster Island, and a drummer with progressive rock in his DNA? The new modern ProgRock band Circuline.

Performing original cinematic progressive rock, Circuline was founded in 2014 when former progressive rock tribute band Downing Grey members Andrew Colyer (keyboards, vocals), Bill Shannon (guitars, vocals), and Darin Brannon (drums, percussion) had a burning desire to write original material. Lead vocalists Billy Spillane and Natalie Brown were up for the challenge, having performed in countless venues as singers, actors, dancers, and rock musicians. New guitarist Beledo (as of January 2016) brings a whole new dimension to the band's compositions and live performances.

Circuline's newest release, "Counterpoint" (May 2016), features an All-Star lineup of SEVEN guest guitarists: Randy McStine (The Fringe, Lo-Fi Resistance); Doug Ott (Enchant); Alek Darson (Fright Pig); Ryche Chlanda (Fireballet, Renaissance); Alan Shikoh (Glass Hammer); Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact, Dave Kerzner); and Stanley Whitaker (Happy the Man, Oblivion Sun). The compositional team of Colyer/Brannon returned for this second album, partnered with the songwriting of McStine, and the vocal arrangements of Spillane/Brown/Colyer. In its first few weeks, the album is already garnering praise and new fans.

Circuline’s debut album, "Return" (released Spring 2015), featured Guest Artists Matt Dorsey (Sound of Contact) on bass, Randy McStine (Lo-Fi Resistance) as a songwriter and vocalist, and Joe Deninzon (Stratospheerius) on electric violin. Paul Ranieri (Shadow Eden) is currently the touring bassist with the band.
