SOLO

Hi guys, a few words to let you know that after 17 years of dedication to Adagio I've taken the decision to fully pursue my career as a solo artist. 

I've been thinking about it for quite some time, but before doing so I felt I had to deliver what would be in my opinion the most intense and personal Adagio album ever and that's why LIFE has been such a monster to do. Not one single detail has been left aside, and that was the condition number one before taking that big turn. 

I am not excluding the possibility of releasing another Adagio album someday, but as for now, I feel it's time for me to move on and fully embrace what made me want to do this in the first place and go back 100% instrumental. 

Taking that decision was definitely not a light thing since it involved not only me but the whole band...Adagio would have never been possible without them, especially Franck who's been there facing the waves with me since day one and Kevin who arrived shortly after. Their reaction was a huge and heartwarming surprise as not only did they all show such an incredible support and understood my need to move on, but also accepted to follow me into this new direction! 

So as far as the lineup, I simply couldn't dream of a better team as Franck, Jelly, Kevin, and Mayline will also be part of this new adventure!!  
I am over the moon and have no words to express how blessed and grateful I am. Thanks so much to you guys for your friendship, talent, priceless understanding and for trusting me. 

I also would like to take the opportunity of this message to thank my brother Kelly and tell him how much I love him. You have done such an incredible performance on LIFE brother, it was way beyond any expectations and you've once again proven that without any doubt, you're the absolute Metal King. 

Activity wise, I am currently working on my third solo album, and a first tour is in the works for later this year. 

The very first solo show will take place in exactly one month, on May 5th in Clermont-Ferrand FR at the wonderful venue LE TREMPLIN - Musiques actuelles - Beaumont 
I will perform songs from both "Shadows Compendium" and "Enigma Opera Black" and will give a masterclass in the afternoon.

    Hey Stephan, Although I respect your decisions on your own career and I admit not knowing all your reasons, im sure they were good. I just wanted to say I think Adagio is a very important band, the time we live in; the music that's available to most...It's so refreshing to see artists who put so much thought, work into their music. The pairing you have with Kevin Codfert, Frank Hermanny who might be the best bass player in the world is solidified immensely with Kelly Carpenter at the helm. His voice, his style, his phrasing, his lyrics and his eerie voice acting ability fit so perfectly for Adagio that if David Readman returned tomorrow, he would seem inadequate. The violinist in your band is also just as revolutionary and I think you all together belong up there with Dream theater when it comes to compositions. I will always follow, buy, support your work and all the members of adagio together or not, but I would LOVE to see LIFE as aLIVE performance, even if I have to fly to France. All I ask is please dont let life be the last we hear of Adagio. Good luck Brother. Always a fan, Reese

    I know that Adagio will always be part of your heart and your life in general. You wouldn't be the Stephan that you are right now without the band. But I support your decision to be a solo artist. If you find satisfaction form being a solo artist and it will make you happier, then that's better! I work on https://www.resumehelpservices.com/monster-resume-review/ and that is where my heart is. We should always go to place that makes us happy.

    It was a wonderful event. I was there when this event took place. My friend had invited me on my birthday and she wanted me to see all the tourist attractions in America. Though I provide [url=https://dissertationwritinghelp.uk/dissertation-chapter-writing-services/]dissertation chapter writing help UK[/url] based and don’t find enough time to plan such visits, still it was my friend’s love that brought me to America.
