Progarchy was founded in that singularly glorious year exactly one hundred years before the epic year of 2112. It was founded by Brad Birzer, Kevin McCormick, C.S. Morrissey, and Carl E. Olson. We also later teamed up with Craig Breaden’s soundstreamsunday.

Our goal is to support beautiful music, specifically progressive rock in all its varied forms, through album reviews, interviews, concert reviews, and articles. We are all volunteers. We do this for the love of the music and the people who create it.

Bryan Morey, C.S. Morrissey, and Rick Krueger
