Glockler and Berry worked together as part of Yes guitarist Steve Howe’s group GTR. Glockler, along with Crichton, also did session recordings with Asia.

“Throughout my career, I’ve been very selective about what to get involved in outside Saga and when opportunities have arisen, I have said ‘no’ far more often than I have said ‘yes’,” said Crichton about the group (via Louder Prog). “When Robert's manager contacted me in 2020 and explained what Robert was seeking to do creatively and how my guitar could be central to the musical vision, I was intrigued.”

Ian and I were determined to keep this a 3 piece band,” added Berry, “and needed a drummer with a similar mindset and who is a solid, heavy hitter. My friend Nigel Glockler was the perfect fit. And with this extraordinary combination of friendship, musicality, and humour, a Brit, a Canadian, and an American have come together as the brand new band SiX By SiX." SiX by SiX is now available for pre-order here. The album will be available as a limited CD, a gatefold 180g LP, and as a a digital LP.
