Biography

By any measure, the creation of their debut album has been a labor of love for the members of Headend. Ray (guitars, bass, keyboards, and vocals) and Joe (drums, percussion, bass, and vocals) had spent their early formative years playing in a number of different bands, though neither of them felt fundamentally satisfied with the music that had been created.

Ray was a founding member of the band “Beyond Blue,” which had gone on to build a sizable fan base in the NYC metro area in the late 90s. Joe played in a number of bands throughout high school and college during the 90s including outfits such as “Wave Theory” and “Cool Hand Luke.” The pair were introduced through a mutual acquaintance in 2001 and immediately found that they shared similar tastes in music and, more importantly, a common vision for an album they had each hoped to create someday. Discussions would often involve their favorite albums, artists, and songs, and the two would often cover these tracks during their various jam sessions.

The two began jamming together with various combinations of band lineups over the next several years as they sought to form the band that would satisfy their musical ambitions. All of these early incarnations had varying degrees of success. And then late one night in their makeshift recording studio, Ray and Joe were jamming some of their favorite classic rock songs when the sessions turned a corner into the realm of pure improvisation (in the middle of a Tom Petty tune of all things!).

    Great album- I picked it up the first week after it came out when I heard these guys playing at a prog festival. Really creative stuff, and the album really gets better the more I listen to it.

    Been enjoying this album a great deal since I bought it a few weeks ago. A good blend of heavy electric and mellow acoustic rock. Lots of creativity here and the lyrics (though few) are very interesting. It's a great CD to listen to during a roadtrip.

    These guys sound really good. Just picked up the album on amazon.... Reminds me of porcupine tree, and rush, maybe a little pink floyd.
