Trinity Live featuring Kim Seviour

Former Touchstone lead singer Kim “Elkie” Seviour” returns to the live stage after a long absence, sharing a bill with her old band at Trinity Live on 27th May at The Assembly in Leamington Spa.

After a while of radio silence, I’m ecstatic to announce that I’ll be showcasing all-new material at Trinity festival in Leamington on May 27th. As with the previous Trinity, we’ll be raising money for Cancer Research and Macmillan Cancer Relief, and I’ll be sharing a lineup with the Touchstone clan. I can’t wait to see you there!

It’s been a while, but we’re glad to have Kim back.

Kim Seviour – Fantasise to Realise

Kim Seviour - Fantasise to RealiseFormer Touchstone frontwoman Kim “Elkie” Seviour kicks off her solo career with the single “Fantasise to Realise”. It’s a dramatic record that combines a big pulsing dance rhythm and rock guitars with a soaring vocal performance that suggests the best may be yet to come for Kim as a singer. It’s the sort of things that deserves to be a dancefloor hit if you can find enough clubs that aren’t frightened of guitars.

If that sounds a long way removed from Touchstone’s progressive rock, it’s actually a logical progression from the more pop-orientated elements of of Kim’s last album with the band. “Oceans of Time” cast around in a lot of different directions, and “Fantasise to Realise” represents something of one of those directions. It is certainly an intriguing taster for Kim’s forthcoming album.
