ARTIST BIO

The timeless music of PETER GABRIEL has found new life through The Security Project. Featuring former members of Peter Gabriel Band, King Crimson, Marillion tour and Lou Reed’s Band, The Security Project not only recreates these masterpieces live, but gives them new musical wings for the 21st Show” raves Progression Magazine after their premiere in New York City. Noted musicians also have given a thumbs up, including Tony Levin, Larry Fast (both from Gabriel’s band) Steve Hackett (Genesis), Jon Anderson (Yes), producer Tom Lord-Alge, Gabriel Analyst Lilywhite Leigh, and even the big man himself have all taken note of Security Project’s live shows.

With Gabriel now a double-inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (both with Genesis as well as his solo career) The Security Project deliver the most adventurous music from Gabriel’s first five solo albums, including “Security” and culminating with “Plays Live”. Founding member Jerry Marotta says: “Peter was always great at setting the table for us as musicians; he always got us started with great ideas… As we were creating SECURITY we had no idea we were making something so unique… I’m proud that with Security Project we’re able to deliver the deepest of those songs, and do it with real conviction, playing them live.”

The live shows have included such gems as: “The Rhythm of the Heat”, “On The Air”, “San Jacinto”, “Here Comes the Flood,” “D.I.Y.”, “No Self Control” “I Have the Touch”, “Intruder”, “The Family & The Fishing Net”, “Wallflower”, along with the occasional classic from “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway”.
