CIRCU5 is the project of British multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Steve Tilling. Five years in the making, the project’s debut self-titled concept album features guest performances from Dave Gregory (XTC, Big Big Train), Phil Spalding (Mike Oldfield), Andy Neve (Steve Hackett) and others.
 
A powerful contemporary Rock project steeped in traditional Progressive influences, the music on CIRCU5 effortlessly incorporates epic Symphonic, FM Rock, Pop and Singer-Songwriter approaches. 
  
Clues to the album's concept are dotted throughout the lyrics and packaging, but Steve is happy to give away the essence: "It traces the life of a baby raised until age three in a secret government organisation, which aims to cure psychopathy while harnessing positive psychopathic traits for certain business and military roles. The character discovers the truth as a dysfunctional adult – with catastrophic consequences.”
