Akacia is a progressive rock band like Kansas and Early Genesis. Their music is like a conversational story set against a technically complex musical backdrop with well spoken jazz and jam breakdowns.

Biography

Akacia is a progressive rock band in the spirit of Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, the Flower Kings, Spock's Beard, and so on. We've been together since late 2001 and have just released our first independently pressed album "An Other Life" (now re-released on Musea Records). We hail from Boston Massachusetts and have played mostly local spots to date. We're currently working on a new album, tentatively called "The Brass Serpent."

Akacia is a progressive rock band in the spirit of Yes, Genesis, King Crimson, the Flower Kings, Spock's Beard, and so on. They have been together since late 2001 and just released their first independently pressed album "An Other Life" (now re-released on Musea Records). They are from Boston Massachusetts. They're currently working on a new album, tentatively called "The Brass Serpent." Akacia is a true classic progressive rock band. They blend elements of classic rock, fusion and pop. Some of their stuff is ethereal and surreal. Their music is technical and filled with many delightful surprises. As the National Review Online wrote “The music is very catchy, ranging from exhilarating highs to wistful pensiveness, and overall the album is quite a pleasurable and stimulating listening experience — and an impressive achievement for a debut work.”
