Blind Ego is the solo project of guitarist Kalle Wallner, known from the band RPWL. In 2005, Kalle decided to release his own material in addition to his work with RPWL. Many of his friends were enthusiastic about the idea and this led to aforementioned project with John Jowitt, Tommy Eberhardt, Paul Wrightson, John Mitchell and many others. In 2007, in collaboration with his RPWL colleague Yogi Lang, he produced his debut album “Mirror”. Followed two years later by his second album “Numb” (2009). Both albums received promising reviews. Due to the busy schedule of RPWL, his solo career has been on hold during the last couple of years, but at the moment, the third Blind Ego album has been in the making. During this show, Kalle is assisted by bassist Sebastian Harnack (Sylvan).http://www.blind-ego.com/
Bent Knee hails from Boston and was founded in 2009 with the aim of shifting the boundaries between pop and rock. The driving force behind this band is singer/keyboardist Courtney Swain. Guitarist Ben Levin is one of today’s most dynamic guitarists. Bassist Jessica Kion and drummer Gavin Wallace-Ailsworth together form a powerful, solid rhythm section. Violinist Chris Baum adds a touch of drama to the unique artrock sound. Producer and live sound designer Vince Welch brings it all together into an intriguing whole.https://www.bentkneemusic.com/
Golden Caves was founded in 2013 by five students from Codarts, the Rotterdam Conservatoire. The beautiful voice of Romy Ouwerkerk is reminiscent of the sound of Anneke van Giersbergen. The Golden Caves’ music balances on the interface of alternative rock, progressive rock and atmospheric music. Golden Caves brings progressive rock to the attention of the future prog generation.http://goldencaves.com/
