Lifesigns have developed into a very successful band since they performed for us at our first festival in 2015. They have 3 studio albums, the most recent, Altitude was released in 2021.
Sunday 10th September
Lifesigns was the brainchild of John Young (keys/vocals), Frosty Beedle (drums), Steve Rispin (sound) and Nick Beggs (bass/vocals). Their first album, Lifesigns, was released in February 2013 and sold well, briefly reaching the UK top 100 album chart. Guests included Steve Hackett (Genesis), Robin Boult (Fish) and Thijs van Leer (Focus).
The band started touring the following year with Jon Poole joining to replace Nick Beggs who had other commitments. The line up was completed by former Steven Wilson guitarist Niko Tsonev. Fifty shows were played over the next year with highlights being appearances at Cruise To The Edge in the USA and Night of the Prog at Lorelei in Germany as well as the Ramblin' Man and Cropredy festivals in the UK.
Having seen Lifesigns perform on 4 occasions, we can confidently say you will so enjoy their music. “Last One Home” features on the Altitude album, and is a masterpiece. John Young excels on vocals and keyboards, whilst the brilliant Dave Bainbridge plays lead guitar.
