Biography

There are multiple groups that share the name Will O’ The Wisp.
1. Hailing from Salem, Oregon, the band consists of Asia Moore on Celtic harp, Rowan Biskey on cello with Kyle Bagnall and Nate Myers on acoustic guitars. The quartet was formed by Asia after the passing of her mother and ever track reflects that. There could be no more fitting memorial than these five hymns. To convey such emotion without the use of words is a eulogy few of us could accomplish.

2.

The group is made up from:
Takis Barbagals - guitar (ex-member of “Lefki Simfonia”)

Angelos Gerakitis - vocals.
Kostas Pagonas - bass
Dina Nassi - keyboards
Nikos Manousopoulos -drums
Nikos Chalikias - flute

On January 1st, 1999 their first album “Will-o-the Wisp” come out released on cd digipack and on vinyl with double cover. The album met with positive reviews by the music press and was twice characterized as album of the month by the zoo magazine.

Their lyrics,always in English, balance between a fantasy and reality, thus creating a bridge for an alternative perception.

Their second album is released in January 2001 under the title “Second Sight”
(in cd digipack book size with booklet and on vinyl with double cover ++ 230gr “Limited Edition” 800 copies).

Actually retaining the same musical style and atmosphere, they somehow manage to acquire greater compositional depths and to create a more mature sound. Their albums circulate in the whole of Europe gaining good reviews.

In March 2002 a single of their comes out, which includes a remake of Billie Holiday’s “God bless the child” (the single with double velevet cover “Limited Edition” 500 copies ).

    Manticore's Breath is a Greek prog band that used to go by the name Will-O-The Wisp :http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=3515. The direction of the band changed a bit as they moved into a harder more retro direction. The music has a touch of a stoner vibe and most definitely 70s English sounding. Manticore's Breath has the same line-up as the 2005 incarnation of Will-O-The Wisp (Takis Barbagalas: guitars, Agelos Gerakitis: vocals, Kostas Pagonas: bass and Kostas Kostopoulos: drums). Their first 10inch EP was released in 2010, and included 2 songs indicating a shift towards a more heavy progressive approach. Their 2011 album Death Breath actually established the new direction with 6 new tracks with heavy guitar riffs, a tight rhythm section and haunted vocals. The album was released on vinyl (600 copies - sold out) and on CD.

    it probably doesn't help that there appear to be a million different variations of writing 'Will-o-the Wisp" - pretty sure this is the correct one though.. ;-)
