Also Eden are sad to announce that founder member, composer and keyboard player, Ian Hodson, will shortly be leaving the band. Eight years is a long time in music and Ian has also been the engineer for the entirety of the band's recorded output to date, as well as dealing with customers of the Also Eden online shop and distributors worldwide. Personal circumstances mean that Ian no longer has the time to fulfil all of these roles and it is a credit to his professionalism that he would rather bow out than compromise on his commitment.
Rich, Si, Lee and Graham are all extremely sorry to see Ian go and wish him, Ali, Harry and Dan the very best for the future. The search for his replacement began back in the Autumn, when he first made his intentions known but the correct feet to fill his sizeable shoes haven't yet been found, hence the decision to take on Andy Davies as producer / additional composer for the forthcoming album, [REDACTED].
The band are very much looking forward to Ian signing off in style with forthcoming gigs at The Musician in Leicester (March 23rd), The Globe, Cardiff (March 29th) and the inaugural HRH Prog Festival at Magna, Rotherham on Saturday April 6th.
