- Headspace is a new band out of the UK that consists of Damian Wilson (vocals), Adam Wakeman (keyboards), Pete Rinaldi (guitar), Lee Pomeroy (bass) and Rich Brook (drums), They quietly released in late 2007 a four song EP called ‘I Am’ I was one of the few, it seems, that received a copy since I saw nothing up on any of the popular progressive rock discussion groups, mailing lists or forums. The only names I’m familiar with in the band are Damian (Threshold, Star One, ex-Landmarq), Adam (son of Rick) & Lee (Rick Wakeman).
The music is a hybrid of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Yes and Genesis to name a few. The result is a crossover band that would appeal to classic and progressive rock fans alike. Each of the four songs featured have elements of those bands but done in such an original way, in my opinion. I feel this EP is a teaser of the great music that’s to come.
I think evidence of Headspace’s beginnings can probably be found on the Magna Carta Yes tribute album ‘Tales From Yesterday’ when Damian and Adam performed along with Fraser Thorneycroft-Smith (guitars), Tony Fernandez (drums) and Phil Williams (bass) in a band called Jeronimo Road. I always wanted to hear more of that band and now with Headspace, I think more people will. I can’t recommend this band and it’s debut EP enough. Check them out on MySpace and you’ll hear how wonderful their music is.
