Jadis news!


Jadis Jadis is an UK neo-progressive rock group. They play guitar-driven rock with the use of synthesizers to add depth and atmosphere, and an emphasis on melody. They are currently signed to InsideOut Music.

The name Jadis is taken from the novel “The Magician’s Nephew” by C.S.Lewis. The same character later appeared as the white witch in “The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe”

Work is well underway for the 7th Jadis studio album, we will keep you posted with news about its progress as well as a few snippets which we will make available on facebook.

Jadis was formed in 1986 and, in 1989, released their first vinyl album, named Jadis, which was produced by Marillion’s Steve Rothery. In 1992, More Than Meets the Eye was released on CD, and was received well in the progressive rock scene.

Jadis is led by Gary Chandler (vocals, electric guitar), although generally the whole group is given songwriting credit. Other original members of the band were Trevor Dawkins (bass), Pete Salmon (keyboards) and Paul Alwin (drums), who was replaced by Mark Law in July 1988. Later members were Martin Orford (keyboards), John Jowitt (bass) and Steve Christey (drums). Orford and Jowitt are also members of IQ.
