Clive is set to appear as a guest musician on the forthcoming release from UK purveyors of Medieval Space Rock, Gandalf’s Fist. Marking the first release by the band as a four-piece outfit, 'A Forest of Fey' follows the psychedelic, folk-tinged journey of a young girl trapped in malevolent woodland. Clive appears on 'Drifter on the Edge of time', a pivotal track in the concept, adding ambient synthesisers and a blistering outro solo. The album is set for release via Gandalf’s Fist official store and all digital retailers worth their weight in salt and also features contributions from fellow Arena sparring partner John Mitchell, Troy Donockley (Nightwish); Dave Oberlé (Gryphon) and instrumental guitarist Matt Stevens.
Clive: "It was a lot of fun adding some keyboards to the Gandalf's Fist music - a wonderful open landscape which gave me plenty of freedom!"
With less than a week left until the beginning of the long awaited "Man Who Climb Mountains" European Tour, the band and crew are busy with preparations and rehearsals. In Autumn 2014, Pendragon will visit 21 cities in 9 countries with a unique, inimitable show featuring old and new material and many surprises!
Clive: "The Pendragon tour is about to start. I have been knee deep in programming and preparation for the material we will be playing on tour. I can tell you there will be something for everyone! This is a great set with plenty of variety, and bags of energy. I hope you enjoy it. See you out there!"
Clive: "I am very happy to announce that the Caamora Theatre Company will be performing one extra "West End" production of 'Alchemy' in Devizes on December the 6th, 2014. This will give us an excellent opportunity to test out our "portable" version of the show as well as gather the team together one more time this year for a Christmas celebration. Hope to see you there!"

Arena have confirmed the news about the change in the band's line up. Due to time pressure and numerous commitments, earlier this year Arena parted ways with their bassist, John Jowitt. Clive's Caamora Theatre Company collaborator, Kylan Amos, has been announced as a new bassist to join the band! Watch out for the new album and the tour. More news coming soon!
Clive: "Arena are happy to welcome bassist Kylan Amos into the fold. Kylan appeared with the band at Leamington recently and gelled very well with the guys. He will play on the new album and you will see him in action on the next tour!"

Clive: "And.... relax! So there we are, a week of 'Alchemy' in the London "off West End'. And what a week it was! Full houses every night, three sell outs and a wonderful and enthusiastic reception from our many audiences. Audiences, which we made up of dedicated followers and just people who came in off the street to see what was going on. Special thanks to the ladies (they saw the show for the first time) who announced to the manager of the theatre that 'Alchemy' was even better than 'Les Mis'... That made my week!
On this general subject I would like to thank all the wonderful 'Alchemists' who have stuck with the shows over the last year or two. It is always so good to see those familiar faces in the audience, and your support has been uplifting and heartwarming! To all of you who travelled, whether from another city in England, or from France, Germany, Poland, Holland, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and goodness knows where else... Thank you so much for coming and supporting us, yet again!..." READ MORE HERE
