About The Neal Morse Band
Neal Morse’s career path is full of unexpected twists and turns, sudden changes and pleasant surprises much like the epic progressive rock compositions for which he has become known. In the mid 90s he formed the quirky Spock’s Beard, whose debut recording, The Light, was an unexpected success. Over the next 7 years, Spock’s Beard released six critically acclaimed studio recordings and multiple live recordings while establishing a passionate fan base in the “prog rock” community. In 2000, he formed the prog supergroup Transatlantic with drumming legend Mike Portnoy (formerly with Dream Theater), Marillion’s Pete Trewavas and The Flower Kings’ Roine Stolt. In a remarkably brief but productive few days together, they knocked out SMPTe, a richly received, massive work of vintage, long form prog. Two years later, the sophomore release, Bridge Across Forever, solidified Transatlantic’s global appeal.
