Dandelion Charm’s cover of Louie Louie, recorded for Roy Weard’s Real Music Club radio show. It feels a bit like the end of an era after loosing Phill; so we thought we’d put together a little video of some of the good times that we’ve all shared. Big thanks to Jim, Bob, Ivan, Rob and of course Phill.

DC sadly lost both friend and keyboard player Phillip John Wickens on 05.05.19. Here are some photos of Phill, to help us all remember him. He is dearly missed.

“This song has it all from a memorable chorus through to blissful harmonies. A perfect fit for daytime airplay.” - Jason Ritchie (Get Ready To Rock!)

Riding the Flood ep launch party!!

John Fowler: guitar/vocals

Ivan Pledge: drums

Dandelion Charm mark the launch of their new 5 track EP 'Riding The Flood' with a full band gig at The Brunswick in Hove.

Clare Fowler: vocals

Bob Burke: guitar/vocals

Jim Bryan: bass/vocals

Phill Wickens: keys

This is an EP that begs to be listened to, and not used as disposable background music. Lyrically very strong, the duo blends together high emotion with lavish melodies that are full of delicacy and power, and they aren’t afraid to let the songs breathe. Once again Dandelion Charm have marked themselves out as exciting talents
— Adam Jenkins - Fatea Records

Proggnosis Review for 'Riding the Flood':

Newhaven-based duo Dandelion Charm have given us with Riding The Flood a very good prog/folk album. Because of the great harmonies, the longer/more complex tracks by CSN come to mind, but I also hear hints of Steve Hackett's second album ''Please Don't Touch'', specially on his songs featuring Steve Walsh or Ritchie Havens. When Clare Fowler's singing is more upfront, Renaissance also comes to my mind.

Riding The Flood is an excellent album, very melodic but also quite dynamic at times. With great singing and great song writing it's an album that gets my highest recommendation indeed.
