KIAMA: Robert Reed & Andy Edwards

Sign Of IV artworkRob Reed is the driving force behind Welsh proggers Magenta as well as instigating various side projects including the highly acclaimed albums by Chimpan A and Kompendium. In 2014 he released his debut solo album ’Sanctuary’ which conspicuously tipped its hat to Mike Oldfield and the seminal ‘Tubular Bells’.

Andy Edwards is one of rock’s most respected drummers having recorded with IQ, Frost* and Magenta as well as a world tour with Robert Plant. He also teaches drums and his students have included Leo Crabtree (The Prodigy), Jim Macaulay (The Stranglers) and Simon Fox (Be-Bop Deluxe).

More recently they combined their talents to form new band Kiama joined by guitarist Luke Machin (Maschine/The Tangent) and vocalist Dylan Thompson (Shadow of The Sun/The Reasoning).

Our interviewer Geoff Feakes took the opportunity to talk to Rob and Andy.
