William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy Recommend XNA
Debut album When We Changed You was produced by Sherwood and also features his bass and guitar work. He was brought in by XNA guiding lights David Hussey, vocalist with Genesis tribute band Gabble Ratchet, and keyboardist Adam Malin, composer of several science fiction rock operas and the mastermind of the original Star Trek convention series.
The lineup is completed by Circa and Yoso drummer Scott Connor plus guitarist Danny Bryle of Psycle and Low Media High. Sherwood says: "The project is amazing in both concept and performance. Each member of the band brings a level of virtuosity so that, when they join forces, it becomes incredibly dynamic and musically expressive – orchestral music with power and punch, vocal depth, rock guitars and everything else it takes to make the perfect magical mixture.
"They asked me on board to produce and mix, and it was an instant 'yes'."
Shatner – who recently hired Sherwood for his own prog album, Ponder The Mystery – has called When We Changed You "masterful and wonderful," while Nimoy told the band: "It's marvellous. You rock the world!" Check out the song here.
