New Wilson & Wakeman album

€9,692

281

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

By pre-ordering the album now (which would make you amazing, because you'd help cover the basic costs for the recording and production) you can get some cool extras; available to backers only, like:

  • A signed ‘backers only’ edition of the album.
  • One of the original test pressings of the vinyl album
  • The original lyrics workbook for the album
  • Have your portrait painted by Adam Wakeman
  • A private song before one of the shows in February/March tour in the UK, Netherlands and Germany.

  • All options include a digital download of the album with exclusive live bonus tracks; only available to backers.

The album, containing 10 brand new songs, will feature Damian on vocals and acoustic guitar and Adam on piano, vocals and acoustic guitar. It also features guest musicians Andy Dunlop (Travis) on guitar, Ash Soan (Adele, Robbie Williams) on drums, Tony Woollard (Damian Wilson) on cello and Haley Sanderson (Strictly Come Dancing) on backing vocals.

The album will be available through Blacklake as digipak CD and as digital download on all major platforms on February 16th. A 12" Vinyl edition will be released in March.

About Damian and Adam

You may know Adam Wakeman as the keyboard (and sometimes guitar) player with Ozzy Osbourne, Black Sabbath or Snakecharmer. He also worked with Travis, Annie Lennox, Will Young, Slash, 10CC and many more.

Damian Wilson is a songwriter and vocalist who has appeared on over 70 separate album releases; widely known in the rock genre, for bands and projects such as Headspace, Threshold, Maiden United and Ayreon.

Their first joint acoustic album 'Weir Keeper's Tale' was released in 2016, but they've been working and playing together for a long time in bands such as Headspace and Rick Wakeman's English Rock Ensemble.

Risks and challenges

We're fully aware of all the risks and challenges that come with bringing an album to life. Fortunately we're at the mixing/mastering stage, so it will be difficult for this album not to be released. However, with your help we can make it even better.

With your help it will be released on CD and Vinyl and there's a long list of people we would like to get involved in the promotion of the album.
