Formed by songwriter, vocalist, and keys man Rob Cottingham (Touchstone founder), the band features James Hards on guitar; Paul Stocker on bass and Graham Brown (Fraudio; The Paradox Twin; Grace & Fire) on drums. After the release of their successful debut album “Say” in October 2016; winning Classic Rock Society’s Best New Band; gigs in 2017 rounded off by a gig in international waters on the HMS Prog cruise in 2018, and a blazing Holland gig in 2019 – the band are back in the UK with a vengeance – and with a brand new girl singer, too – Sarah Bayley.
After Rob released his solo album, Back Behind The Orchard Tree, with John Mitchell on guitars, in April 2019, he and the band launched their first live album, “Alive In Holland”, in January 2020 in Milton Keynes, including new songs which will feature on Cairo’s next studio album due out in late 2020. The band also released video single “Deja Vu (Live)” via Prog Magazine in advance of the live album launch in January 2020, and have announced further UK gigs together with a slot on Cambridge Rock Festival’s (CRF) main stage in June 2020. In celebration of the CRF announcement, the band recently released a live video of their song, “Wiped Out (Live)” – recorded in Holland.
