Their debut album, Where Joys Abound was released later that year. Following the joining of long-time collaborator Keith Buckmanon bass, vocalist Marguerita Alexandrou and guitarist Denis Warren, the lineup stabilised, and joined Bad Elephant Music in 2016 for the release of their highly acclaimed second album, Given the Impossible.

The Far Meadow is very active as a live band, having performed with, among others, Caravan, Carl Palmer, Focus, Gong, and label-mates The Gift, The Rube Goldberg Machine, Konchordat and TomSlatter.

They will be making their debut appearance at Summer’s End in Chepstow in October 2019, with more dates to be announced throughout the year.


Bad Elephant Music:

Bad Elephant Music is delighted to announce that preorders for ‘Given The Impossible’, the new album from London melodic prog outfit The Far Meadow, are now available!


The Far Meadow is the product of several previous collaborations, combining influences from bands past and genres from metal to jazz with a healthy dose of innovation that has produced a distinctive, free-flowing sound. This new album – the first with the current lineup – is a full-blooded expression of this sound, developing many years of musical experience and experimentation into one harmonious whole that encapsulates the intensity of their explosive live performances.

David Elliott of BEM says: “Since seeing them at Resonance, I’ve been looking forward to seeing what The Far Meadow have to offer, and suffice it to say I haven’t been disappointed. This is a wholly unique album with a brilliant sound and I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!”

‘Given The Impossible’ releases on 4th November 2016. Order your copy now from the BEM Music store and you get an immediate download of the track ‘Dinosaurs’:
