Biography updated : After appearing in the ProgYes Festival in 2012 in York (UK), singer/songwriter Tim HUNTER and SILVER LINING's vocalist/lyricist Thierry SPORTOUCHE decided to start an Anglo/French music project called SILVER HUNTER, to focus on 1970s prog influenced pop and rock. The intention is to blend two styles: melodic accessible music with progressive, theatrical rock. Tim is also a solo artist and runs his own record company, Northern Soundscapes. He has also promoted Prog rock festivals and ran his own Prog radio show for 2.5 years on Halifax's Phoenix FM (UK). Thierry's 'ACID DRAGON' is Europe's only prog 'zine written in English and has been running since 1988. It is published 3 times a year. Thierry also has his own monthly radio show on Lyon's (France) SOL FM called Prog à Part. Tim has released several highly acclaimed solo albums, including the Double CD 'Journeys: Captain James Cook'. Thierry was a member of SILVER LINING (who produced the classic 'Inner Dragon' album) and Anoxie ('Pastales' and 'The Quest' on Musea's 'Enchantement'), and also wrote the concept of 'Seven Days of a Life' with Francis Grosse (a Musea compilation) SILVER HUNTER released a 4 track EP, to coincide with their gig in Lyon, supporting ARENA (April 2015) and at a concert at le Péage du rock festival near Lyon (June 2015). For that, the duo was accompanied by Georges-Marc LAVARENNE, Frédéric LACOUSSE, Jean-Pierre GOBELIN (from ENNÉADE), Nicolas MOURACHKO (from SILVER LINING, JAM TEMPUS) and Fouad El KAROUT (a classical pianist).
