Han Uil (Purple Shadow) is a singer-songwriter/(lead) guitarist and singer in the symphonic rock band Seven Day Hunt (three members are ex-Egdon Heath). His distinctive voice and playing the guitar attracts attention. In the mid 90's Han started writing songs in cooperation with lyricist Philip Koning. With him he initiated the grunge rock formation Vertical Reality in 1995. From 1997 till 1999 he performed as a lead guitarist in the alternative rock band The Lounge.

In that period he also recorded two acoustic albums 'Fire Finishes This Day' and 'Excalibur' released under his nickname 'Purple Shadow'. In the year 2000 the album The Frigus Project - Loomed Merriment was released under own management. This album is a collection of recordings on which a great number of musicians performed, in particular drummer Sander Zoer. The style on this album is a combination of folk, classic and symphonic rock. The songs cover topics as war, mistreatment, love and various society critical subjects. The recording of the song 'Give her some rest' on this album was virtually the start of a new symphonic rock band called Antares.

The in own management released album 'Choking the Stone' (2001) was praised in the press. Highpoint in the band's existence was a spot in the international ProgPower festival in 2002. Three years later the band decided to disband. In the meanwhile Han started a new solo project on which also three former Antares members performed (Jeroen Spanjaard, Gerwin de Weert and Sander Zoer). The album consists of eight new works as well as a cover of Peter Hammill's 'Just good friends'.

Though Han is inspired a lot by Hammill's work, Americana and Roots influences are substantially present. Other main influences are: Neil Young, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, Dire Straits, Jethro Tull, Marillion & Pink Floyd. The new album 'Alone' has been released March 2006. Currently Han is working on a new symphonic rock album with Seven Day Hunt Read more on Last.fm.
