Robert Reed Sanctuary Live

It is well-known how much other musicians may influence us as composers. In my case, Johann Sebastian Bach, Eric Woolfson, Alan Parsons, Roger Hodgson, Vangelis, and Mike Oldfield are probably on my top list of influential musicians.

A few years ago, I heard of Robert Reed, who was picking up the torch Mike Oldfield had ignited in the early 1970s with his deep, complex, and innovative music. Intrigued, I delved into Robert Reed’s Sanctuary albums and was astounded by his musical prowess.

Attending a live performance by Robert Reed seemed like a distant dream, given the limited number of venues where he has performed over the years. However, luck was on my side, and I had the privilege of witnessing the Robert Reed Sanctuary Live concert at the Arlington Arts Centre in Newbury, England, UK, on May 26th.

The experience was nothing short of emotional, and at times, I found it difficult to contain the tears that welled up as I listened to the captivating power of his music. What impressed me most about Robert Reed was his immense talent and humble nature. Despite his remarkable musical abilities, he remained grounded and connected with the audience personally. The same can be said for all band members. It felt like enjoying music with close family and friends.

The memories of that evening at the Arlington Arts Centre will forever be etched in my mind and heart, as it is one of the most extraordinary musical experiences I have ever had.
