Biography

Plainsong was formed by Ian Matthews (previously in Fairport Convention) in 1972 with Andy Roberts, Bob Ronga, and Dave Richards. In Search of Amelia Earhart was released the same year with relatively poor sales. However the critical response was largley positive. Their follow-up, Plainsong III was more country orientated. During its production, Ronga quit and Matthews and Richards were unable to agree on future direction. They disbanded before the album’s completion. The early 90s brought renewed interest in the band, with several subsequent releases:

1993 - Dark Side of the Room
1994 - Voices Electric
1996 - Sister Flute
1999 - New Place Now Any Trouble, Gregson & Collister)]

The band have been quiet since, however their debut continues to be very highly thought of.

Plainsong is also the previous name of the band now called Solstice.

    This is also a track title by The Cure. A really nice track, if you ask me. Preview it: Plainsong.

    There's a problem here. There are two bands called Plainsong. Well one now, since the newer one has changed its name to Solstice. Cold Day in December and Zombie are songs by Solstice. The band's lead singer, Lori Lee, is Amy Lee from Evanescence's younger sister. So I'm not sure how this link thing is going to work.
