Review by G. W. Hill
The easiest comparison here is to Renaissance. Surely the combination of classical and folk inspired progressive rock with the vocals of Stefanie Reneé beg those comparisons. There are sections of this that could easily pass for that band. Still, in some ways this more tied to old worlde sounds even than that outfit are. Additionally, there are sections here that make me think of other progressive rock groups like Yes. Whatever you call it, though, this is great stuff. It’s sure to appeal to fans of old worlde music, but also to progressive rock fans. In addition to Renee (who also plays tambourine, recorder and zills), Accolade is Aaron Goldstein (guitars, keyboards, organ and mandolin) and Cade Burkhammer (drums and percussion). Sean Henry guests on keyboards.
