French act STEP AHEAD was active in the early 80's. Their only release prior to breaking up, 1982's "Step Ahead" has seen lots of praise coming it's way, which has led to the album being reissued two times so far.

In many ways the band, dominated by the contributions of Christain Robin (guitars), Claudie Truchi (keyboards) and Danny Brown (vocals) were a precursor of things to come. Symphonic rock of late 70's Yes is a clear influence, but mixed with classical influences and 80's keyboards the resulting sound was quite similar to what was to be coined Neo Progressive in England a couple of years later. Other musicians participating on the only album made by this talented group are Gerard Macia (guitars), Antoine Ferrera (bass), Jean-Yves Dufournier (drums), Alain Lejeune (keyboards), Philippe Recht (bass), Emmanuel Riquier (drums).

WHY IS THIS BAND LISTED AT PROGARCHIVES:
French act STEP AHEAD mixed obvious influences from symphonic rock with an 80's approach, specializing in the creation of complex semi-classical keyboard layers with the end result a style of music approved by the Neo Progressive team for inclusion into the database.
