3 stars Kenny Mitchell resides in Newcastle, UK and produces music entirely on his own talents.A first taste of his value was launched in November 2012 with the EP ''Excerpts from Jane Eyre'', which showed a cinematic approach to rock music.Two months later his prog background came on surface.Mitchell's first actual full-length album saw the light via bandcamp, entitled ''Voyager''.The man recorded all instruments on his own and, more impressively, he was also responsible for all the graphic design, artwork and photo work of the CD.

The content of this effort prooves Mitchell's high ambitions, as the album consists of two long tracks, over 25 minutes each, of instrumental, dreamy and well-crafted Progressive Rock with evident hints from the 70's and bombastic nuances from the modern era.As a result, these pieces come as a combination of old-school acoustic lines and symphonic keyboard work with heavier guitar segments and spacey, layered synthesizers to deliver multi-inspired progressive music.Detected influences include PINK FLOYD, GENESIS, PORCUPINE TREE and even MIKE OLDFIELD.Basic elements of ''Voyager'' are the ethereal piano lines, the hard psych-influenced guitar riffing, the cinematic, almost MARILLION-esque electric solos and the bucolic acoustic underlines, while a variety of synth-based soundscapes is always around, not to mention the few occasions of organ-flavored parts.Powerful passages, vintage touches, symphonic overtones and a somewhat folky attitude are reasonable after-effects of Mitchell's diverse musicianship.Full of shifting tempos and climates, ''Voyager'' offer textures, that can be either dramatic and passionate or more laid-back with a lovely spaciness.Be sure to face some pretty solid and dense prog material at the very end.

Fundamental Progressive Rock of nice quality, summing up a great effort by this man.Atmospheric, challenging and tight music, wrapped up in two 25-min. packs of sheer beauty.Warmly recommended.

3 stars UK composer and musician Kenny MITCHELL is one of many artists who seemingly have come out of nowhere the last few years, and I suspect that a combination of affordable recording possibilities, time at hand and means to distribute your music yourself without a steep cost have fueled many such ventures, although I don't know if that's the situation in this particular case. Even so, Mitchell ventured forth with an EP in 2012, two full length albums followed in 2013, of which "Voyager" is the second, and a third album is just about to be released at the time of writing.

In the realm of DIY artists, UK composer and musician Kenny Mitchell has made himself a compelling creation with "Voyager". A production that does suffer a bit from being the work of a one man band, but containing two compelling pieces of instrumental progressive rock that should find favor amongst fans of bands like Pink Floyd in particular, and recommended to those amongst them who enjoy the more accessible parts of that band's repertoire. Especially if they don't mind music with somewhat more of a lo-fi production.

4 stars Instrumental music has always been a bit of a tricky subject with a lot of people. It's quite a specialised little sub division of the prog genre I guess, having a little niche all of it's own, and you've really got to be pretty good at it to be able to get by. As a relative newcomer to that nich ... (read more)

5 stars Crossover prog is probably a suitable description for this music, but there are many parts of the album which could also be described as symphonic prog, with some massive sounding keyboards to compliment the excellent guitar work. It's also a nice mix of retro and modern, but with most of the em ... (read more)
