The Twenty Committee
The Twenty Committee first assembled in January 2012 to work on material previously written by Geoffrey Langley. By combining the diverse musical insights of Stephen Kostas, Joe Henderson, and the brothers Justin and Richmond Carlton, the band began collaborating on more original material and playing shows in the greater Philadelphia area, building a catalogue and a reputation.
In April of 2012, the veteran prog artist Neal Morse (Spock's Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse band) launched the "Chance of a Lifetime" series of videos on YouTube, looking for unknown talent to audition for his touring band. Geoff made the trip down to Nashville to meet Neal and had the opportunity to perform some original material for him - material in which Neal expressed particular interest. By the time July arrived, the band had already booked both Radiant Studios and hired Jerry Guidroz (Flying Colors, Transatlantic, Neal Morse) as their producer.
Recorded roughly over the space of two weeks, the band's debut album, "A Lifeblood Psalm" was released 1 April 2013 to excellent reviews from the prog community.
The Committee is now in session.
