CD Jewelcase. Renowned for his collaborations with Steve Hackett and Roine Stolt, Nad Sylvan now releases “Courting The Widow”, his first solo album since 2003, which marks his debut for InsideOut Music. Rooted in classic progressive rock and sporting a thought-out concept, Sylvan considers the new record “very much a symphonic album. However, there are funky touches in there as well. You will hear hints of classic Motown. Because I like to mix things up. As far as I'm concerned that's what you should be doing if you want to be progressive, surprising people and doing the unexpected.” Sylvan achieved exactly that and “Courting The Widow” also features an impressive cast of guests including Steve Hackett (ex Genesis), Roine Stolt (The Flower Kings, Transatlantic), Nick Beggs (Kajagoogoo), Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings), Nick D'Virgilio (ex Spock's Beard), Gary O'Toole (Steve Hackett band), Doane Perry, Annbjørg Lien, Lars Drugge, Rob Townsend, Jade Ell & Skrut the cat. Sylvan concludes: “I feel that I have delivered an album that's true to myself and my values in life. It's heartfelt, passionate, emotional and full of dramatic passages. I'm proud of what I've done here, artistically and musically.”
