Produced by Jeffrey Crecelius, Michel Arsenault, Wayne Hall, Preston Frazier and Bill Govier.

We managed to speak to Geoff Downes about his other new release – The Downes Braide Association’s DBA3 – Skyscraper Souls. Mark and I go into a lot of detail about the album and then ask Geoff some questions about its construction and influences.

There’s also time for a rather mischievous Yes and ARW 2 pence so something for everyone, we hope!

  • Is this DBA album a continuation of or a revolution from the last?
  • Did Geoff ever meet any of the contributors?
  • What is the writing process like?
