The Security Project Feat. King Crimson & Peter Gabriel Members To Tour US In Support Of New Live Album "Contact"


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) The Security Project has once again reinvented itself, this time with vocalist Happy Rhodes. Together with Jerry Marotta (drummer from Peter Gabriel's first five records), Trey Gunn (King Crimson), Michael Cozzi (Shriekback) and NY keyboardist David Jameson, the group continues reimagining the early work of Peter Gabriel (and also, on this disc, Kate Bush), but with Happy's impressive four-octave vocals adding an entirely new dimension.

The Security Project will be releasing their new live album "CONTACT" on November 18, 2017! The material is culled from shows in the US and their recent Japanese tour. The band will be touring the US in support of the album release in November.

Scorching reviews:

"The Security Project expertly reimagines Peter Gabriel's groundbreaking early output, creating an immersive experience both in performance and on its debut release Live 1. The group goes far beyond conventional tribute band territory, infusing the songs with new arrangements and elements while staying true to the spirit of the material. Gabriel enthusiasts across the board will be taken by the band's high octane approach full of drive, determination and energy." - Anil Prasad, Innerviews

"What Security Project does is accomplish what's been too long in coming: positioning Peter Gabriel's music as repertoire. It's clear that while the band treats Gabriel's music with no shortage of reverence, it's also about a more open-ended approach to the music." - John Kelman, All About Jazz

"Somehow, like Gabriel, the Security Project's performance strikes the right esoteric balance between the tribal groove of world music and the inscrutable logic of the best progressive rock." - Peter Lindblad, Elmore Magazine

David Jameson
Keyboardist/Eigenharpist David Jameson began his music career in the 70's - when multi-keyboard/synth players became a thing. He spent several years touring with Time Machine and then left the music scene for a career at IBM Research after completing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland. At IBM, Dr. Jameson created and managed the Computer Music Center and was elected to the prestigious IBM Academy of Technology. David left IBM to found Digiportal Software and more recently Deskew Technologies where he now co-develops Gig Performer, a recently released audio plugin host that targets the critical needs of live performance/session musicians and which he uses in The Security Project shows instead of carrying around tons of vintage keyboards (for which the other band members are very grateful). In addition to working with The Security Project, David also performs with Beyond The Wall, a Pink Floyd tribute band.
