After their most recent acoustic tour, Damian Wilson and Adam Wakeman decided to enter the studio together. The release of their new album "Stripped" is scheduled for January, the musicians have tried to capture the 'onstage chemistry'. In the spring of 2019 Wilson and Wakeman jointly go on tour and a concert at De Boerderij should not be missed!
Damian Wilson has been involved in the production of more than 70 different albums, both as a songwriter and singer. Wilson is known as a respected rock singer and for projects and bands such as Headspace, Threshold, Ayreon and Rick Wakeman’s English Rock Ensemble. As a solo artist, he now has five albums to his name. He also played the role of Jean Valjean in the English version of the musical ‘Les Misérables’. Adam Wakeman is best known as keyboardist and guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath. Together with his father Rick Wakeman he released no less than nine albums and Adam has four solo albums to his name. As a classically trained pianist he explores the boundaries of many genres and styles, from classical to rock. During this show, Wilson and Wakeman play songs from their individual back catalogues, songs from musicians with whom they have worked and, of course, songs from their joint albums. Naturally, memories and stories about their lives ‘on the road’ will not be lacking.
‘Great musicianship, great singing, great songs and a great atmosphere. You can’t ask for much more than that really’
Mark Radcliffe – BBC Radio 2
Paul McGee, known widely as McGoozer, embraced music from an early age. His siblings had a major impact on his love for music along with the influences that abound in his native Scotland. With his brother Brian being a founding member of Simple Minds and his other brother Owen (AKA Owen Paul) having a UK summer smash in 1986 with “You’re My Favourite Waste of Time”, it is no surprise that McGoozer has spent his entire life immersed in the music industry and yet still feels like this is just the beginning. His career in music began with “The Official Tribute to the Blues Brothers”, where he alternated between playing the parts of both Jake and Elwood Blues as he toured with this theater production. Another early career highlight was recording and touring with Mike and the Mechanics. McGoozer sang on their studio album “Rewired” and toured all round Europe as the opening act for Phil Collins on his world tour, performing to festivals and stadiums of over 70 thousand people at a time.https://mcgoozer.com/
