“Max Hunt was introduced to Bob Hagger & Clive Bayley of Mabel Greer's Toyshop in 2015 by Yes biographer Dave Watkinson, as MGT had reformed and were looking for a keyboard player for their next album. Max joined the band and played keyboards on and co-produced the second MGT album, The Secret.
Clive and Max have been working together on this project since 2018.
The album features founder member of the pre-Yes 60s band Mabel Greer's Toyshop, Clive Bayley, Fragile keyboard/bass player Max Hunt and drummer Jürgen Link.
Clive Bayley and Max Hunt have collaborated together to produce an album of highly original songs drawing on their combined experience with a dazzling variety of musical cultures/genres. 'Whispers' draws on diverse influences of classic and modern rock & pop, progressive rock and world music.
Clive Bayley is a founder member of the London based 60s pre-Yes band Mabel Greer's Toyshop. Clive founded the band with Bob Hagger in 1966 and, following a period of extreme creativity, MGT became Yes in 1968.

In 2001 Max joined Yes tribute band Fragile and toured the UK and Europe, including shows with Steve Howe & Alan White of Yes.
