Billy Sherwood Anchors New Supergroup Album, “Arc of Life”

Arc of Life: Arc of LifeProgressive rock fans have another incredible band to check out called Arc of Life. The five-piece band features three current members of Yes – vocalist Jon Davison, bassist/vocalist Billy Sherwood, and drummer Jay Schellen – as well as guitarist Jimmy Haun and keyboardist Dave Kerzner. The supergroup has just released their self-titled debut, which they say obviously has Yes influence, but that’s just one aspect to their “grandiose and epic approach.”

The project began between Sherwood and Davison, who began writing songs together on the Yes tour bus in 2017. “I had my studio set up in the back, and we just started writing songs back there,” Sherwood told Glide Magazine. “As I said, we kind of knew instantly that we were on to something bigger than we’d anticipated in terms of when we started.”

Sherwood wrote lots of great material for the album and the bass often sits in the center of the song. He told Glide that he used his Spector “fish” bass, a fretless, a Rickenbacker, and a few other basses to get a variety of sounds.
