Fans of Yes, ELP, Genesis and the other great keyboard-centric bands of the first golden age will fall instantly in love with Cairo. Driven by virtuoso musicianship and conceptual songs, Cairo’s lush arrangements, soaring melodies and sweet harmonies are as cinematic as they are evocative.

Jeff Brockman’s powerful, yet tasteful, drumming propels the tracks while acting to hold the band together. Singer Bret Douglas has a vocal purity matched only by its power.
