All Around The World - Different Light from the Czech Republic
A change of scenery can make all the difference. Moving to Prague inspired Different Light's Trevor Tabone to start again.
From Malta to the Czech Republic, Different Light have certainly had a peripatetic career so far. One that started over two decades ago, as vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Trevor Tabone explains.
“It all started in the early 90s, when I helped to form a band in Malta which played mostly covers. But by 1995 I had written quite a bit of material, so I formed Different Light and we released our first album, All About Yourself, in June 1996. My initial influence was Supertramp; more specifically Roger Hodgson, which then led on to other bands like Genesis, Pink Floyd and Marillion.”
Different Light stood out on the Maltese scene, where prog wasn’t overly popular and by the end of the 90s, they’d split up. A decade later, Tabone, now based in Prague, decided it was time to form a new version.
Ironically, the prog scene in Malta has actually picked up quite a bit now.
