Arc Angels

Arc Angels was a blues rock band that formed while the members were jamming at Austin Rehearsal Complex (ARC) in Austin, Texas, in the early 1990s. The band consisted of two guitarists and vocalists, Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II, as well as bassist Tommy Shannon and drummer Chris Layton, who were both previously members of Stevie Ray Vaughan's backing band, Double Trouble.

The band's self-titled debut album was released in 1992 and received critical acclaim for its mix of blues, rock, and soul influences. The album reached #127 on the Billboard 200 chart and included the hit single "Living in a Dream."

Despite the success of their debut album, the band disbanded in 1994 due to personal and creative differences. Charlie Sexton and Doyle Bramhall II both went on to pursue successful solo careers, while Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton reunited with singer/guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd to form the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.

In 2009, Arc Angels reunited for a series of concerts and released a live album, "Living in a Dream," which included new material as well as updated versions of their classic songs. The band continues to perform occasionally, but all four members remain busy with their individual projects.
