Description

2015, Billy Sherwood created this concept album based on a lost soul that is reincarnated into various periods of history. Billy placed the citizen character into significant moments of history. The lead off track is called ,,The Citizen" which sets the stage for what's to come on the recording. ,,The Citizen" features Billy's longtime friends and members of the legendary Progressive Rock band Yes: bassist Chris Squire and former Yes keyboardist Tony Kaye. Each song places the Citizen into a unique set of circumstances where decisions are made that have serious personal and global consequences. In the song ,,No Man's Land" the Citizen appears as a World War I trench runner who passes the message along to the troops that it's time to attack; the Citizen remains behind and is, ultimately, the only survivor. ,,Empire" finds the Citizen as a conscript legionnaire in the final days of the Roman Empire. Known as a multi-instrumentalist, Billy performs drums, bass, guitar, keys and sings several of the songs.
