Curved Air is a unique band, synthesizing an eclectic blend of musical styles into an instantly identifiable sound. Curved Air's hits include "It Happened Today", "Vivaldi", "Marie Antoinette" and "Backstreet Luv". Curved Air founder member vocalist Sonja Kristina leads a skilled and talented new line-up bringing their unique music to an existing and new fanbase in the 21st Century.


Curved Air’s concerts and festival appearances continue to thrill a steadily increasing mass of new and old fans worldwide. Their experimental blends of classical themes, electronic sounds and pop/rock energy and beautiful, timeless songs are performed with fire and passion and tremendous musicianship.


Considered (according to AllMusic) "one of the most dramatically accomplished of all the bands lumped into Britain's late-'60s prog explosion", Curved Air is a pioneering British progressive rock group of musicians from mixed artistic backgrounds.


They are famed for their unforgettable live performances and 'Art Rock' music - the quasi classical imprints of Terry Riley hooked onto beautiful and demonic violin combined with electronic adventurous synths and interwoven with brilliant guitar wizardry mesmerisingly embroidered by the
subliminal and exotic presence of a unique lead singer Sonja Kristina. All these elements elevated them from the underground Roundhouse scene to top the album charts in the early '70s.


On 12th November 2012, much to the excitement of their fans and press worldwide, a Live CD/DVD titled 'Live Atmosphere' was released - 'Songs of revolution, insanity, loss, desire and ghosts: a unique compilation of powerful Curved Air songs played by a vital contemporary Curved Air'. This was followed by the release of “North Star”, the band’s first album of new material in 36 years.

Testimonials:
"CURVED AIR, with a real band attitude and a zest for life; this is a band you want to see live for the sheer artistry of how to deliver the musical goods." (Lee Dorian, Classic Rock)

"All of the players impress - some stunning new instrumentalists who immerse the audience in a set of swirling, whirling solos that emphasize moods and nuances and floating waves of sound that act as a counterpoint to Sonja's dramatic sense of theatricality". (Classic Rock Society Magazine)

"Sonja Kristina prowls the front of the stage expertly playing off the energy of all the performers with her. Violinist Paul Sax pulling sounds from his instrument like a mad scientist. There's no denying they remain formidable live!" (Prog Magazine)

"While women in UK progressive rock were relatively few and far between its Sonja that wore the crown. Well the undisputed queen of British Prog is on tour again and what a joy it is to see her and Curved Air back in action. Violinist Paul Sax sweats for his art right from the off and with virtuoso wizardry sears through the set like a man possessed. The whole group of assembled musicians are perfectly qualified to recreate the band's uniqueness authentically. Catch them while you can". (Classic Rock)

Curved Air is:

Sonja Kristina – vocals Paul Sax – violin Chris Harris – bass Robert Norton – keyboards Kit Morgan - guitar Andy Tween – drums
