Nick Magnus Shot [Profile Image].JPGComposer, keyboard player and producer Nick Magnus is best known for his work with ex-GENESIS guitarist Steve Hackett from 1978 to 1989, providing his keyboard talents to at least twelve of Hackett’s albums to date, as well as extensively touring Europe, the UK and the USA.


Nick started his musical career in early 1976 with the cult symphonic rock ensemble: The ENID.

At the end of that year, he left The Enid to spend two years with the Progressive Rock AUTUMN.

In 1999 AUTUMN released a CD of their material originally recorded in 1977 entitled: ‘Oceanworld’, subsequently re-issued in 2019 on vinyl.


Nick has released six solo albums of his own compositions: ‘Straight On Till Morning’ (1994), ‘Inhaling Green’ (1999), ‘Hexameron’ (2004), ‘Children Of Another God’ (2010), ‘N’Monix’ (2014) and ‘Catharsis’ (2019). 

A ‘Live Album’ recorded with John Hackett was also released in March 2011.

The latter half of the 80's was spent doing session work with many diverse recording artistes such as: CHINA CRISIS, RENAISSANCE, George Martin, MUNGO JERRY, Johhny Mars, Cilla Black, Jose Carrerras, Brian May, Richie Havens, Bonnie Tyler, Mike Batt, CLASSIX NOUVEAUX, David Essex, Pete Bardens (CAMEL), Duncan Browne, Chris Rea and Colin Blunstone.

Nick 's skills as keyboardist, producer and writer are frequently in demand, with recent contributions for artists such as: UNITED PROGRESSIVE FRATERNITY, ROME PRO(G)JECT, Amanda Lehmann (Steve Hackett Band), John Hackett, Dik Cadbury, DAMANEK, The ROCKING HORSE CLUB, Tony Patterson & Brendan Eyre (Northlands), and the ‘Harmony For Elephants’ project.

Nick is also a regular contributor to music technology magazine Sound On Sound.
