Lobate Scarp is a progressive space-‐opera rock band based in Los Angeles. From progressive rock influences like Genesis, Yes, and Phish, to the rock sensibilities of bands like Kansas, Muse, Faith No More and Styx, and a pop infusion of catchy vocals like Simple Minds, The Killers, The Police, Queen, and Foreigner as well as strong ties to musical theater.
Lobate Scarp's full length debut album "Time and Space" was released on 12-12-12 and received accolades from all over the world. The album took 5+ years and 50+ musicians to make. In addition to vocals, guitar, bass, keyboards, also recorded were Trumpets, Saxophone, Viola, Violin, Cello, Theremin, Glockenspiel, and a 30+ person choir singing in Latin. Percussionist Alex Acuña (Weather Report) appears as a special guest in the opening 15-minute title track and Rich Mouser (Spock’s Beard, Transatlantic, Neal Morse) mixed and mastered the album. Steve Leavitt produced and engineered. It was made possible in 2012 by a successful Kickstarter campaign and has since received accolades from all over the world, played on radio shows, podcasts, as well as had reviews published in numerous music publications.
At the heels of releasing their new single "Beautiful Light" for their upcoming album entitled You Have It All. Being recorded and mixed once again at The Mouse House under the production expertise of Rich Mouser, the song features an array of guest musicians playing flute, English horn, oboe, and violin. Steven Leavitt, producer of Time and Space, will also return to co-‐produce. David A. Hardy, the world's oldest living space artist, will again create the artwork for the new album.
"“Beautiful Light,” off their upcoming second album, You Have it All. I highly recommend it to all of you – a fantastic style of upbeat prog rock with clean production and a lovely 70s “golden age of prog” feel to it." - Bryan Morey (USA) Progarchy
"Absolutely brilliant stuff!" - Kevin Mulryne (UK) The Yes Podcast
"Lobate Scarp is a band that can go far, Time And Space is probably the most strong debut album that I've heard in the last years. It's the power of the New Prog Generation showing that we can overcome the old ghosts with style and serenity. Time and Space is intriguing, refreshing, and inspiring!"- Diego Ferreira Camargo (Poland)
"The production is exceptional, the music is also exceptional. The band demonstrates they know what they want to do and they do it very well." - Carl E. Olson (USA) Progarchy
"Time and Space is a great debut album, one of the best debuts I have heard. It is all killer and a genuine delight to listen to from start to end." - AtomicCrimsonRush of Prograrchives.com
"[Time and Space] was clearly worth the wait. The time involved to bring this music to fruition is heard in every track; spotlessly produced and skillfully performed, the music is large and panoramic in scope. Highly recommended for fans of symphonic prog."- Jerry Lucky (Canada)
