They signed with Malcolm Parker’s Cyclops Records for 2005 Awake & Dreaming – a CD he claimed was the best piece of contemporary prog he had heard since Spocks’ Beard debut ‘The Light’ in 1993.
In 2010, Mike joined forces with David Lloyd, and The Gift became a five-piece band who cut The Gift’s second album, ‘Land Of Shadows’, whilst their current acclaimed album ‘While The Sea Is Salt’ features former Genesis guitarists Steve Hackett and Anthony Philips and Tiger Moth Tales multi -instrumentalist Peter Jones.
