Artist Biography Available in: "Nightingale" is a progressive rock/metal band from Örebro in Sweden.
Nightingale came to life in 1994 as a solo goth rock project by multi instrumentalist and producer Dan Swanö, designed to explore his brief fascination with the genre. In 1996 Dan teamed up with his brother Dag "Tom Nouga" Swanö (He adapted a stage name to avoid confusion due to the similarities of Dan and Dag) Together they wrote and recorded the album that still stands as the most "classic" NIGHTINGALE release "THE CLOSING CHRONICLES". After a few live shows with a temporary line-up NIGHTINGALE was laid to rest and Dan started writing for the third UNICORN album and Dag continued with his solo works. Around Christmas 2000 the brothers teamed up with Erik Oskarsson (ex. Blackbird) and the drummer Tom Björn (also in Memory Garden) to get a live act together. The four piece worked well and the band was formed.
