More information: The Syn first made their claim to iconic status in the 1960s, something highlighted in the new movie release this Spring 'Melody Makers' which features their classic freak-beat masterpiece 'Grounded' and interviews with vocalist and songwriting founder Steve Nardelli. They were a pioneering act in the world of beat prog. Opening for Jimi Hendrix in London, they played in front of crowds that included the Beatles, Eric Clapton, members of the Rolling Stones and more. Since the heyday of the late 1960s, Syn line-ups have included Yes greats Chris Squire, Peter Banks and Alan White as well as Francis Dunnery and Tom Brislin and many more.
Now, with the brand new 2016 studio release, Trustworks following on from an array of critically acclaimed and award winning albums, the connection to more modern prog yet is made clear. The new album is a collaboration between iconic Syn leader and founder vocalist Steve Nardelli and the Swedish progressive rock act Moon Safari who will tour with Yes in Spring 2016. The album can be seen in many ways as a merging of the rich history of old school progressive rock and the modern incarnation through this remarkable musical melding. Jeremy Carroll at Precision Mastering, one the few people to have heard it before release, describes Trustworks as 'the best prog album of the decade'.
