HEADSPACE began innocently enough; as a way for a close circle of musician
friends to reconnect. There were no preconceptions of launching a prog
metal band, and certainly no visions of grandeur.
“We didn’t really have any idea of where we were going with
it," says Wakeman. “We just did it purely to be together. We’ve
been friends for a long time, so our thinking was that if we were going
to get involved in a project, why not do it with our mates, the way you
do when you’re 15 or 16 years old. I think the idea when we got
together was to not try and do something or be something. It was more
a case of ‘Let’s get together and see what happens, and we’ll
follow the music in the direction it takes us.’ It became clear
quite quickly when we started playing with song ideas that it was going
to be a prog band. I don’t know who we were kidding (laughs).”
In 2007 HEADSPACE released the EP 'I Am'. They played
a few (2 to be precise) shows and then decided that they could play Wembley
as support for Ozzy. In the five years after these shows they wrote and
recorded the album 'I Am Anonymous' (2012). Their second
album ‘All That You Fear Is Gone’ will be
released on 26th February 2016
Blessed with a last name that gives the average
music-lover goose bumps, this highly sought after keyboard player
& musical director tours, writes and records with some of
the biggest selling artists in the recording industry.
One of the busiest, most sought after male vocalists
in the world. Damian continues to renew his creativity both
as a front man and as a solo artist.
"I Am Anonymous is a heavily guitar oriented
record. That wasn’t the intention, but he’s a killer
guitar player, and the album just evolved the way it did. The
next one might be more keyboard-heavy, but I doubt it if Pete
has anything to say about it (laughs).” (Adam Wakeman)
Lee Pomeroy is an award winning composer and producer.
He is also one of the UK’s most sought after bass players.
Lee has recorded, toured and performed with a diverse roster
of high profile artists.
The new guy. He has played with so many artists;
if you check out the list on his website, you'd think he was
lying. Now he's drumming with Headspace and we couldn't be happier.
Richard is originally from Scotland and moved to
London in 1995 to pursue music. He has performed and recorded
with a wide range of artists over the years. He met Adam, Lee
and Damian filling in for Tony Fernandez on a Rick Wakeman gig
and HEADSPACE was born.
