Headrush began when guitarist Dave 'sleeze' Leese met singer Andy Law at a gig Andy was playing with his former band, Andy auditioned by singing 'Dead Or Alive' on karaoke and the rest is history! Andy has a natural ability for melody and has already been likened to such legends as Bruce Dickinson, Sebastian Bach, Graham Bonnet, and Steve Perry whilst still managing to retain his own unique style and charisma.
Drummer Tom Williams brought in his Aerosmith styled, Funky Rock Drumming to the band, and Kaz Emery was added to the band with a unique 5-string full on bass attack that lays down the bands booming, heavy trademark sound.
Last of all Chris 'The Tramp' Khosa brought in a rip-roaring chainsaw 2nd guitar, and developed a classic twin lead guitar partnership with founder member Dave ' sleeze' Leese, leading to mutually assured guitar destruction!
Headrush's direction, musically and stylistically, is in the vein of such greats as Guns'n'Roses, Aerosmith, Motley Crue, and AC/DC. With Dave and Chris (Guitars) and Andy (Vocals) forming the bands songwriting partnership, and Kaz and Tom providing the driving rhythm, Headrush's live shows are full of high octane energy and 100% fun.
With songs full of big choruses, infectious melodies, and riffs that stick in your head after one listen, Headrush have a list of songs that are sure-fire singles. The quintet ring true to their own catchphrase - 'Back again...Rock'n'roll.' The Rock'n'Roll anthem 'Perfect Drug', the uplifting 'Saviour', and pure in your face attitude of 'Just Bring It On' make up Headrush's debut single EP, along with a whole albums worth of future singles such as the driving 'Where I Belong', the epic 'Fallin', and the heart tugging 'Set In Stone'.
