Middlesong release EP with Billy Sherwood
Middlesong duo launch Directions EP featuring Yes bassist Billy Sherwood
Middlesong have released their Directions EP featuring producer and Yes bassist Billy Sherwood.
Joe Schneider and Phil Tomczak teamed up last year to work on the collaborative prog project and are currently in the studio writing the remaining tracks for their debut full-length album. Directions is now available to purchase.
Sherwood tells Bravewords: "It was great fun working on the music with the guys, I'm very proud to have been a part of it all and very much looking forward to having it now get out there for everyone to hear and enjoy."
Schneider and Tomczak add: "We were surprised and very pleased by the way the songs evolved. We allowed all of our influences to enter into the songwriting process. Billy Sherwood was then able to polish and bring the songs to life while preserving our original tunes."
Sherwood and former Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman recently contributed to composer Leon Alvarado's upcoming concept album The Future Left Behind.
Yes kick off their run of US shows in Columbus on July 27 and wrap up in San Diego on September 4.
