TCP is a progressive band that met right here on Mixposure late in 2007. The spontaneous collaborations which first took place were not only rewarding, but quite unlikely without Mixposure as the key connection point for us. We consider it a success story.
Formed early in 2008, TCP began an effort to create compelling progressive rock drawing on all eras of this phenomenal brand of music. After realizing the right elements were in place, a creative chemistry began in the ensuing months that culminated in the completion of our first album, The Way, early in February 2009. This resulted in signing with 10T Records who released the album in May 2009.
Once out of musical hibernation over the summer of 2009, we began the follow-up album, Fantastic Dreamer, putting on the final touches in February, 2011 . Both albums are readily available at many popular online stores (e.g. Amazon, Best Buy, Barnes & Noble) and download sites (e.g. iTunes, Napster, eMusic) in many countries. Music reviews are here.
Henry narrated our Center Stage presentation on Mike K's show this November 13, 2010. It previewed some of the material on Fantastic Dreamer. If you didn't catch it, you can listen here to this segment of the show.
Thanks for listening!
One pleasure of putting songs on Mixpo is to see how people react to them. If you have any thoughts, please let us know on the song's page. We return the favor of musician comments by listening and commenting on your material.
