CD Review: British Band Quill Has A "Brush With The Moon" On Latest Release

From the U.K. comes the latest release from the country/folk band Quill entitled "Brush With The Moon." It is their first album to be released worldwide and the last album to features the words and lyrics of founding member Ben Brain. The new Quill album was inspired by ELO's Jeff Lynne using the demo recordings of John Lennon to create "Free As A Bird," that Quill took the same concept on this release, by using the demos recorded by Ben Brain prior to his passing.
The new ten song release begins with the warming acoustic touch of "Quicksilver" as singer Joy Strachan-Brain mixes vocals with her late-husband on this feel-good song. The folk-style of "Tumbling Years" and the smooth contemporary rock of "Poppy Fields" showcases why Quill is one of the top bands in the U.K. The storytelling of "Nine Mile Camp" and the acoustic, slow-tempo rocker "Hollywood Blues" showcase their use of Brain's recordings as if he was in the studio with the band recording these wonderful songs.
