· QUILL is a well-established, 7-piece country/folk/rock band based in Birmingham, England, from the same stable as LED ZEPPELIN, BLACK SABBATH, THE MOODY BLUES and ELO.
· ‘Brush With The Moon’ is a collection of songs written by the late BEN BRAIN. Ben was bass player and husband to Quill’s lead singer Joy Strachan –Brain. He left a legacy of wonderful songs and inspired by Jeff Lynne’s use of John Lennon’s demos on “Free as a bird”, Quill was moved to use Ben’s vocals and original demos to create this new album.
· “Brush with the Moon” is a tribute to Ben and has truly been a labour of love. Featuring respected musicians Bev Bevan ( ELO, Black Sabbath ) and Brian Tatler ( Diamond Head )
· QUILL is enjoying performing to sell-out shows throughout the UK, taking the audience on an exciting and emotional journey that features songs from an album that the audience can relate to.
