About Nick Gilder

Nicholas George 'Nick' Gilder (born December 21, 1951), is an English-Canadian musician who first came to prominence as the frontman for the glam rock band Sweeney Todd. He later had a successful solo career as a singer as well as a songwriter. Born in London, England, Gilder was raised in Vancouver. He began his career as front-man for the glam rock band Sweeney Todd, which later briefly featured a very young Bryan Adams. Sweeney Todd had a number one hit, 'Roxy Roller', that held on to the top spot in the Canadian music charts for three weeks in 1975. It went on to win a Juno Award for 'Best Selling Single' in 1977. Feeling they had international scope, Gilder and fellow band member, guitarist and songwriting partner, James McCulloch left the band and signed a US record deal.
