Damian Wilson and Adam Wakeman will release their second full-length album in February 2018 and they want you to be part of it.
"Writing songs with Damian is always a great experience as we tend to start from scratch and follow where the writing takes us.
We've known each other a long time now so we are able to make mistakes and explore ideas freely without feeling self conscious. And by that I mean, if I play something rubbish, Damian will take the piss out of me suggesting I take my mittens off, and likewise, if he sings something that sounds like he's trapped his fingers in a car door, or if he comes up with words that I've never heard of. All of which happen on regular occasions, but make for a truly honest album" - Adam Wakeman
