Kim Seviour, Touchstone’s former lead vocalist, recently signed to White Star Records to pursue her solo career and release her debut album later this year. Along the way Kim recorded a one-off track by Astralasia’s Marc Swordfish, “Fantasise to Realise,” as her first single. “Fantasise to Realise” will not appear on Kim’s solo album as it will contain all new material written by herself and John Mitchell. “Fantasise to Realise” is a hard progressive rock song with gutsy fuzzed guitars and Kim’s vocals. This is a nostalgic song that brings elements from the 60s and blends them with contemporary music to create an uplifting song. Kim was voted in the Top 10 in Prog Magazine’s Woman of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year in their latest poll. Her lead and multi-tracked vocals are great and I am struck by the similarity to Crystal Jacqueline’s voice. If “Fantasise to Realise” is any indication, the new album should be very appealing.
