Jimmy Carey Haun[1] is a U.S. left-handed guitarist, known for his work with the bands Yes, Air Supply, and Circa.

Career[edit]

Haun's first band was Lodgic with childhood friend Michael Sherwood and, later, Michael's younger brother Billy Sherwood. They released one album in 1985.

Haun went on to play much of the guitar on Yes's Union album (1991; produced by Jonathan Elias), before work in The Key with B. Sherwood and The Chris Squire Experiment with B. Sherwood and Chris Squire. He also did session work for Air Supply, Kitaro and Jon & Vangelis during this period.

Haun has worked extensively with Elias, including playing on his American River album (2004) but also on music for commercials. Haun created the music for the Intel commercial 'Intel Rockstars',[2] among many others.

Haun re-joined Sherwood in progressive rock Yes spin-off supergroup CIRCA: (formed 2006), also with Tony Kaye (ex-Yes) and initially Alan White (currently of Yes). Sherwood, Kaye and Haun were also all in Yoso with singer Bobby Kimball. Yoso subsequently disbanded and Haun left CIRCA: to focus on commercial work.

In September 2012, Haun broke the news that he is working on a Jon Anderson solo album with Elias and M. Sherwood.
