Artist News: Ian Parry Signs To ProgRock Records

Posted on Saturday, June 16 @ 05:25:07 UTC by nightowl

ProgRock Records is proud to announce the signing of Producer/Vocalist Ian Parry for both his solo album Visions and his fourth offering, Consortium Project IV - Children Of Tomorrow.

Unlike previous albums C IV is a more diverse rock metal production with progressive elements reminiscent of Ian's earlier productions. Ian has spent more than a year on this epic, co-producing, writing, recording and mixing with colleague Elegy keyboard player Joshua Dutrieux.

As on the previous Consortium 3 album, the songwriting has been shared with Joshua and Ian plus contributions from newcomer to the Consortium family, ex-Within Temptation drummer Ivar de Graaf. Ian plans to put the Consortium show on the road later in 2007, as a prelude to an Elegy reunion. Also as an extra special item for the fans, Ian is in the process of filming a video clip. The track for the clip from C IV will be "Enigma."

The full line-up of Consortium Project 4 is: Ian Parry - vocals; Joshua Dutrieux - keyboards; Ivar de Graaf - drums; and additional guitars by Henk van der Laars (Elegy guitarist). Ian has shared some of the lead vocals with newcomer Erna auf der Haar - female vocals, and additional choirs by Judith Rijnveld (C3 and lead vocalist from the newly formed Dutch band Kingfisher Sky). Special guest Lou St.Paul (Winter's Bane) adds guitars to the project as well.

Ian Parry had this to say: "Hello America and all members and fans from Progrockrecords USA. It is my proud honour to announce that my new Consortium Project IV CD Children Of Tomorrow will be joining the ProgRock Records family who will be releasing CIV together with my latest and greatest solo CD offering Visions, exclusively in the USA. A special treat for the USA will be bonus material and shortly, a video clip from C IV, so check out the press and the homepages for details of the upcoming releases on Progrockrecords. All the best and have a rockin' great summer".

"My introduction to Ian was through his first Consortium Project album that is still one of the CDs I listen to a lot, so it was a real treat when Ian contacted me about these 2 albums, they really are fantastic, some great themes and melodies and of course they are heavy," said Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records.

Children Of Tomorrow and Visions are the ProgRock Records debut release from Consortium Project and Ian Parry. They can be found at www.progrockrecords.com/artists/view.php?id=78. The album is available for immediate order and will ship in late June and be available at your favorite brick and mortar retailer on July 31, 2007. Presales are discounted $2 on the ProgRock Records site until the album starts shipping.
