Cosmograf was born in 2008 when Robin produced his first home demo album, ‘Freed from the Anguish’ followed by the release of ‘End of Ecclesia’ in 2009. The next release ‘When Age Has Done Its Duty’ showed a huge uplift both in writing and production quality and captured the attention of the progressive rock community, and the press alike, leading to a Limelight nomination in the PROG magazine awards.
The Cosmograf sound is rooted in 70’s classic rock with many contemporary influences from rock, progressive rock and metal. There is always a particular emphasis on concepts and atmospheric production leading to comparisons with artists such as Pink Floyd, Porcupine Tree, and Steven Wilson.
Since then some 7 albums have been produced to date, with much critical acclaim and press attention. See the full discography here.
In June 2014 the band performed their only live appearance to date playing at the Celebr8.3 progressive rock festival at Islington Assembly Hall. The line up consisted of Robin Armstrong- Vocals/Guitar/ Keyboards, Luke Machine – Guitar, Lee Abraham- Guitar/ Backing Vocal, Steve Dunn – Bass, Kyle Fenton – Drums.
