The band The Syn has a rich and extensive history in music. That is showcased in an upcoming film, titled “Melody Makers, Should've Been There.” Coming out this year, it is based on the acclaimed photographs of Barrie Wentzell. He was the house photographer for the classic magazine Melody Maker. Steve Nardelli is featured in the film, and The Syn song “Grounded”
Formed in 1965, The Syn was a precursor of the band Yes, with that band’s former bassist (the late great Chris Squire) as one of the founding members. At various times The Syn has also included Yes alums Peter Banks and Alan White in their lineup. Other acclaimed musicians like Francis Dunnery, Brett Kull and Tom Brislin are also Syn alum. The 1967 incarnation of The Syn opened Jimi Hendrix’s legendary first ever European show at the Marquee Club in London. The audience included The Beatles, members of Cream and The Rolling Stones and more rock royalty. The Syn did an exceptional job playing support to the genius that was Jimi Hendrix at his hottest. At the same time they made themselves known to a wide swath of British rock music royalty.
The 2016 version of The Syn features band founder Steve Nardelli joined by renowned Swedish prog rockers Moon Safari. Jonas Reingold of The Flower Kings produced the album and Trustworks is already being anticipated as a master work. The mastering engineer at the illustrious Precision Mastering in Cropredy, Jeremy Paul Carroll (one of the very few people to have heard it finished) described it as “a beautiful album, the best prog album of the last decade.” Trustworks can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com.
The disc comes less than a year after the critically acclaimed Live:Rosfest CD/DVD combo. Of that, The Progmeister (Progmeister.com)
