Forever Twelve is a five-piece progressive rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Their symphonic progressive sound includes gorgeous female lead vocals, vintage keyboards, both electric and acoustic guitars, electric bass, and complex drums and percussion. They've performed at Baja Prog 2004 in Mexicali, Mexico, and around the southern California area. Forever Twelve's music contains elements of jazz, folk, rock, fusion, neo-prog, classical, and pop all serving a musical purpose to express a certain mood or idea.
The songs on "Remembrance Branch" range from intense rocking to gentle interludes, feature lots of time signature changes, and have several extended instrumental sections. You'll enjoy fluent and pounding rhythms, beautiful synthesizer patterns, and heavy basspedals in "Burning Ink," divine keyboards (from sparkling piano to majestic choir-Mellotron) in the Marillion-like "Slogans Of Compliance" and strong combined keyboard/guitar-playing in closing track "The Quest."
Kenny Hundt (Bass) and Steve Barberic (Keyboards) met in 1993. Fernando Martinez (Drums) joined the group in 1998, Cat Ellen (Vocals and Flute) joined in 1999, and in 2000 Tom Graham (Guitars) joined. They recorded their first CD, Remembrance Branch, in 2001 and released it in 2002. The second CD, Spark of Light, was recorded in 2003 and released in 2004.
