Band Bio

Horizon Ridge is a group of fine multi-instrumentalists and seasoned singers known for their intuitive and tight harmonies. Helen and Steve Goodchild, Peter May and Dianne Quinton take musical inspiration from their roots and subsequent journeys near and far.

Horizon Ridge brings an engaging stage presence to performances.  With influences spanning traditional and contemporary folk, country, blues, rock and gospel, the band is versatile and adventurous.  Their first CD, Enough is all you need, was released in July 2016. A mix of original and cover songs, it showcases the band's ability to move effortlessly between different musical styles and genres.
