    Formed in 1968 by Jon Anderson and the late, and much-missed, Chris Squire, YES have been one of the most innovative, influential and best-loved bands in rock music history. Their 1970s albums The Yes Album, Fragile, Close To The Edge, Yessongs (a triple live album set), Tales From Topographic Oceans, Relayer and Going For The One were ground-breaking in musical style and content. Their music also became synonymous with artist Roger Dean whose distinctive YES logo design and artwork adorned the lavish gatefold presentation sleeves of many YES albums.
    With sales of over 50 million records, the Grammy-award winning YES were inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2017 where they performed Roundabout from the album Fragile and the FM radio-friendly Owner Of A Lonely Heart from the 1985 album 90125.
    YES released their 22nd studio album in 2021, The Quest, produced by Steve Howe and which went to No. 1 in the UK Rock Albums Chart and entered the Official UK Album Chart at No. 20. In 2022 came the sad news that drummer Alan White, ever-present in the YES line-up for 50 years, had passed away. The news came shortly before the band embarked on their classic, genre-defining album Close To The Edge 50th Anniversary Tour which they dedicated to Alan.
    In February 2023, ahead of the news of the new studio album Mirror To The Sky, YES confirmed Jay Schellen as the new permanent drummer with YES,hand-picked to step into his mentor and friend Alan White’s role. “I had done the 2016 tour on my own for Alan,” says Jay. “From late 2017 onwards, we had a beautiful partnership. I learned and discovered so much about Alan’s style.His passion and creativity was phenomenal. The new album has Alan’s presence all over it. It is inside of us. So, this is still, in my heart, Alan just being present and with us, and with me, in a big way.”
  • Roger Dean

    Roger Dean is a world renowned artist and designer, known for his unique style of album cover paintings, logos, typefaces and organic architectural designs.

    He was born in Kent, England and graduated from the Royal College of Art as a silver medallist.

    ​His career began while he was still a student, designing the Sea Urchin Chair and the Landscape seating for Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.

    While working with Ronnie Scott's team, Roger was asked to design and produce an album cover for a Rock band they had signed called the “Gun”.

    It was in 1971 that Osibisa's first album appeared, with the unforgettable image of a winged Elephant landing in a sunburst of orange and magenta sky, above which the name of the band was announced in what was to become Rogers' trademark hand drawn typography. This was hugely successful both as an Album cover and as a poster.

    ​At the time he was also asked if he would take on another commission, and the name of the band was, YES.

    ​This commission became the album cover for 'Fragile' and it was the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration between the family of  YES, and Roger Dean.

    The surreal and dreamlike qualities of Rogers paintings combined with the sometimes haunting, occasionally triumphant but always expansive musical adventures of YES' music, became a unique experience enjoyed by millions.

    In addition to his work as an artist and designer, Roger Dean was also a co-founder of the publishing companies, Dragons' Dream, and about a year later Paper Tiger. He published over a hundred fully illustrated books featuring the work of artists such as, Syd Mead, Alan Lee and Michael Kaluta.

    ​Virgin Records, Psygnosis and Tetris, all proudly displayed their visual identities as company logos, designed by Roger Dean.

    ​Rogers' work is instantly recognisable and has influenced popular culture around the world. Over a hundred million people are estimated to have owned a piece of Dean’s work at some point, either as an album cover or a poster. His designs have also been imitated through graffiti and major feature films.

    A selection of Roger's work, is held in various private collections and museums, including the V&A Museum in London and the MAK Museum in Vienna.
