Sorren Maclean (Home Town: Mull and Glasgow, Scotland UK)
is one of Scotland’s most talented and merging artists and now teams up with Spatial Unity. Sorren will first feature on the new single Dreams Come True, scheduled for release in Jan/Feb 2009.
Sorren Maclean has experienced previous success with the Sorren Maclean Band, lining up with such acts as King Creosote and Jeremy Warmsley (August 06) and also playing live at various other festivals and gigs throughout the UK; which also includes a live session on Radio 1 with Vic Galloway.
Andy Pearce (Home Town : Melbourne, Australia - now resides in Scotland UK)
is a percussionist, drummer, composer / producer; his natural talents have been described as original and refreshing
Andy is the driving force behind Spatial Unity; he is an accomplished composer/producer and his musical creations combine Electronica with natural percussion and other acoustic instruments. The result is an inspirational fusion between Jazz-funk to the cafes of Havana. Andy's musical influences evolved from the 90's where he worked as a resident DJ in various clubs. As a child he was classically trained as a pianist but during his teens fell in love with drumming. Later, Andy discovered a passion for percussion in particular Brazilian and Afro-Cuban styles and now uses these influences heavily in his own personal creations.
As a session musician in demand, his skill has been called upon to record on assorted projects-albums and has played in various concerts and music festivals throughout Australia and also the UK. Some highlights include the Groove in the Moo Festival (QLD Australia), and also Belladrum 2005 (Scotland UK) playing in the Geno Washington Band.
Andy Murray (Home Town : Inverness, Scotland UK)
is an inventive, creative guitarist / song writer with flare and imagination; Melodic in approach and fiery by nature, he has been compared by some to such players as Jeff Beck, Gary Moore and Eric Johnson. This is evident in It's Not Love and Touching What's Divine.
Andy is probably most famous for playing lead guitar with Celtic rock legends Wolfstone where he featured on two gold selling albums "Unleashed" and "The Chase". Also, while with Wolfstone he toured worldwide and participated in live TV concerts and Radio sessions.
Thereafter, Andy has been a session musician on many albums and has gained a wealth of experience in many genres of music including Blues/Rock, Hard/ Rock, and now Electronica. To expand, Andy has worked with notorious musicians such as John Sinclair (keyboard player from Ozzy Osbourne) and Martin Smith (a past member of ELO). He also co wrote Coming Home Tonight, a song featured on the Smokey album, "The World and Elsewhere", released globally in 1997.
He continues to write his own material, and recording in other projects, and has now teamed up with long time friend Andy Pearce (Melbourne) in this exciting venture with Spatial Unity.
Kevin Wiles - (Scotland UK)
Kevin has played bass and keyboard with a number of bands since the mid 80s. After touring for many years in the UK and Scandinavia he finally teamed up with Andy Murray and together they formed The Limit. The success of their partnership created some memorable live performances as well as a number of interesting studio recordings. In 2001 Kevin gracefully retired from the music industry after 17 years as a professional but after some gentle persuasion and an interest in the music currently being produced by Spatial Unity he is "dipping his toe in the water" once again.
