Nad Sylvan signs solo deal

Vocalist Nad Sylvan, known for his work with Steve Hackett, has signed with InsideOut for a solo album due in October.

It follows the release of three albums with Agents Of Mercy, which he co-founded with Flower Kings mainman Roine Stolt in 2009.

Sylvan says: “Finally, after 40 years of fighting for it, I finally get a first-class record deal.

“In a little less than four years I was snatched up by two iconic guitarists, Roine then Steve. That must mean something to the world – because it sure means an awful lot to me.”

The 56-year-old US-born Swede, who previously fronted Unifaun, continues to appear with Hackett. More details on his album will be revealed in due course.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
