FRAGILE were founded as a tribute
project to the music of classic 70s symphonic rock band Yes in 1998.
The band are now well known to YES fans all over Europe,
having appeared on the UK's primetime Richard & Judy TV show with Rick
Wakeman and visionary album cover artist Roger Dean and performed
throughout the UK, Finland, Belgium, Holland & Switzerland, including
tours with YES/ASIA guitar legend Steve Howe in 2005/6 and 7. The band
has also performed to an audience of over 35,000 with YES and former
John Lennon drummer Alan White and have performed at many exclusive
Roger Dean art exhibition events over the past few years.
News about FRAGILE working with YES members and Roger Dean has appeared
as top news items on the official YES website on many occasions and
FRAGILE have been well and truly accepted into the extended YES family
by YES members themselves, who have publicly endorsed the band.
2013 saw a wonderful new collaboration with singer songwriter Claire
Hamill (who has worked with Alan White, Steve Howe & Jon Anderson)
joining the project on lead vocals.
Here is some more information about Claire:
Claire has had a distinguished musical career and offers a great
blessing to the project being a genuine link to Yes. With help from Alan
White, in 1971 she was signed & launched on Island Records as one of
Britain's first female singer-songwriters and compared by several
commentators of the time to Joni Mitchell. Claire has worked with Alan
White, Steve Howe, Jon & Vangelis & Wishbone Ash and performed
internationally as support on tours with many well known artists
including Jon Anderson, John Martyn, Procul Harem, Jethro Tull, The
Kinks and Jackson Browne. Claire sang lead vocals on the 1980 Steve Howe
track 'Look Over Your Shoulder' and her 1974 song 'You Take My Breath
Away' was recorded by Eva Cassidy and used on a movie soundtrack gaining
huge international popularity.
