Veteran keyboard player John YOUNG (The Strawbs, John Wetton, Bonnie Tyler, The Scorpions, Fish, Uli Jon Roth, others) realized in 2008 that he had never done a pure prog album. The band LIFESIGNS, is the direct result of that realization.

John started writing the music for the first LIFESIGNS album in 2008 working closely with sound engineer and next door neighbor Steve RISPIN. As John was often touring with one of the many projects that he was involved in, it took the better part of two years for the writing to have progressed enough to enlist a friend. In 2010, John recruited longtime friend Nick BEGGS (Kajagoogoo, Steve Hackett, Steven Wilson, Rick Wakeman, others) to play the bass and Chapman Stick and drummer Frosty BEEDLE (Cutting Crew) to round out the trio. Over the next two years the band completed their first album, enlisting the talents of prog luminaries Steve HACKETT (Genesis) , Jakko JAKSZYK (King Crimson), Thijs VAN LEER (Focus) and Robin BOULT (John Young).

The band has a modern sound with lush, multi layered keyboards and the distinctive sound of the Chapman stick. John and Nick blend their voices beautifully and frequently throughout their first album in higher pitched harmonies reminiscent of Yes.

With the list of musicians that had been compiled for their first album, "Lifesigns" was released with great anticipation in January of 2013. « hide
