Bio: K2 began quite by accident in May of 2001 when bassist Ken Jaquess asked drummer Doug Sanborn to play on some new music he was working on. Having no idea if anything would come of these sessions, they set out to record a bold and daring project that would soon take on a life all its own. After on...See Full Bio
“K2 returns after a six-year absence – and they return with an exceptional work of power, beauty and amazing production. The band of new vocalist Josh Gleason, Ken Jaquess – bass and keyboards, new superb guitarist Karl Johnson, Ryo Okumoto (Spock’s Beard) – keyboards and Doug Sanborn – percussion, create a near perfect blend of everything that a Progressive Rock fan could want. The compositions are a nod to early Genesis and Yes, but they are not copyists – the melodies are modern takes of those styles. So we have seven melodic songs, all between six and eleven minutes save one short two-minute piece. And the songs weave through interesting time changes and dynamics. Piano flourishes will suddenly appear amidst heavy bass and drums; a busy but melodic guitar solo will blaze from a build-up of mounting volume; keyboards attack with the fury of Keith Emerson and then become more delicate like Tony Banks and the bass playing can have a Chris Squire sound, its heaven!!”
