by Rob Reed (5.1 FLAC)
Rob Reed’s Sanctuary III (2018) is the follow-up to the acclaimed Sanctuary (2014) and Sanctuary II (2016) albums. Rob single-handedly produced, mixed and engineered the album, and plays most of the instruments himself, with the help of legendary drummer Simon Phillips (Toto, Mike Oldfield), recorder player Les Penning and Tubular Bells producers Tom Newman and Simon Heyworth.

Rob Reed needs little introduction, a talented muscian/composer that has been creating delightful prog music since his early days with Cyan as well as the The Fyreworks, then forming the brilliant and still-strong Magenta as well as the Kompendium project featuring a busload of prog superstars (Genesis' Steve Hackett, King Crimson's Mel Collins, Porcupine Tree's Gavin Harrison, etc). A thorough multi-instrumentalist on both guitars, bass and a variety of keyboards, as well as adept on percussion when needed, Reed is also a producer of high repute and solo artist in his own right. Sanctuary is his first solo album and, inspired by Mike Oldfield's work on Tubular Bells, he plays each and every instrument with obvious glee and mastery.
