BREATHING SPACE Coming Up For Air (2008)

Breathing Space

Second album by the band formed by Iain Jennings, who was a member of Mostly Autumn when the first Breathing Space album came out but has since left the band.

On vocals is Olivia Sparnen, who sings backing vocals with Mostly Autumn. But don't go expecting Mostly Autumn soundalikes! Breathing Space verge into melodic rock/AOR at times, check out the anthem that is 'When I Hold On To You', lots of keys and guitar, courtesy of Mark Rowan who plays with a deft style - never to flashy but interesting solos and some good, heavy riffs when required.

'On The Blue Horizon' allows Olivia's vocals to shine, a lovely mellow tune and again featuring sterling guitar solos. The title track is another lively tune and again veers into melodic rock territory with Karnataka coming to mind on the chorus.

A couple of guest appearances from Liam Davidson, who contributes slide guitar on 'Don't Turn a Blind Eye', and from John Hart, who contributes sax and flute. His sax solos on 'The Senses' really do lift the listener's senses!

Production wise it is top notch, with the keys and guitars melding nicely and this album is definitely one not only for Mostly Autumn fans but lovers of melodic rock/AOR. With the right exposure this album deserves big sales and I am already looking forward to album number three!
