Lucid Rising is an up and coming Psychedelic-Rock project from the Portsmouth based musician Ben Parker. After performing as a solo artist in the Portsmouth area for just under a year, Ben decided to join forces with long term friend and fellow guitarist Brad Patey. The pair continued to jam as friends do and started writing stuff quite different to Ben’s usual solo style.
After one of Ben’s last solo dates the duo met drummer Ollie Gower, of whom was playing in one of the other bands on the bill that evening. From there they decided to start a band (in classic garage days style). Without any previous rehearsal, the trio played their first gig. Taking songs from Ben’s back catalogue of material and turning them into a whole new Psych-rock creature.
