London-based three-piece, Brainstorm have released their eponymously titled debut EP.
The ‘Brainstorm’ EP was recorded and mixed at Temple studies in Surrey by the legendary Jon Hiseman and features two brand new tracks including the lead single ‘Hypothermia’.
The Brainstorm line up features K Ray Chaudhuri (guitars, bass and lead vocals), David Brooks (keyboards and backing vocals) who are professors of neurology and Alex Rizos (flutes, harmony vocals and percussion) who is a research scientist.
On this recording they are accompanied by one of the UK’s greatest drummers, Jon Hiseman from seminal 1970’s jazz-rock band Colosseum (who featured Clem Clempson and Chris Farowe) and also played with Paraphernelia, John Mayall and Graham Bond Orchestra.
‘Hypothermia’: A flute rock based on climbers who had died on Everest expeditions.
‘Kilimanjaro’: Based on a climb of Kilimanjaro to raise funds for Parkinson’s UK, a foremost Parkinson’s disease charity in the UK.

Although, taking their inspiration from West Coast bands like Crosby Stills and Nash together with classic UK bands and singer songwriters such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Oasis, Eric Clapton and Robert Plant/Alison Krauss, Neil Finn, Brainstorm write all their own compositions and create their own unique sound.
Their common love for Californian rock, progressive Jazz-Rock and country music sees them effortlessly combine a number of eclectic sounds such as flute with rock with the sort of results that haven’t been heard since the heyday of Traffic and Jethro Tull.
Brainstorm have played some successful shows throughout 2015 and are set to announce more dates in the New Year. More details to follow.
Jon Hiseman is recording a new album with thirteen new tracks at Temple Studios. We believe this will be first ever album to express the issues related to Parkinson’s disease a condition that has affected Linda Ronstadt, Brabara Thompson, Billy Connolly, Michael J Fox as well as the late Robin Williams.
