    Life’s been quite busy for Adrian Whitehead, what with his flight to the moon imminent and also the release of his debut album, One small Stepping Man. From his 60’s valve space bubble, circling high above this planet, he has finally beamed down his debut musical offering. Ten tidy pop songs in digital format. Each one a masterful musical story about those funny little people called Humans
    The creation of this album began many years ago when Adrian was traveling in far away places…
    “Each song on the album is a little snapshot of a time or place and my part in it. A girl who has a lot of growing up to do, a lost friend, a murderous record producer, a girl, a share house, another girl…”
    Some time later, Adrian met with Jak Housden, that enigmatic Sydney record producer guy. Together they entered the studio, wearing their 60’s influences firmly on their sleeves.
    “Jak is like no other in the studio. He’s mad, but a genius, with the most incredible ear for music. My album was a bit of an experiment because our musical approaches are nearly opposite. Jak will persist with something until he gets exactly the sound he is hearing where as I’m basically an improviser and whatever comes out first will do. So there was a lot of give and take in the studio”
    The result of those sessions is a beautifully understated record that shows off Adrian’s unique brand of songwriting and Jak’s authentic 60’s production.
    “I nearly always call my music pop music but actually it’s nothing like what pop music has become today. It’s more like 60’s pop. The focus is on the song – melodic tunes, maybe you’ll get a message lyrically maybe not. I guess I’m trying to carry on the tradition of those great songwriters like Lennon McCartney, Carol King, Brian Wilson…”
    This long awaited album is out now through Popboomerang records and should prove to be one giant leap in the world of pop!
