About The Band

Spacesuit was formed by five Indiana University students in the vibrant college town of Bloomington, IN in 2007. The band's inventive sound is characterized by a colorful mixture of psychedelic rock, prog, jazz, and world music influences. Simultaneously blending the legendary musical ideologies of those who have inspired them (artists such as Pink Floyd and King Crimson) while also looking to the future has helped them create a sound that is uniquely theirs. Strong lead melodies are provided by guitarist Eric Cox and saxophonist Greg Winget, who skillfully weave serpentine phrases into a tapestry of sonic brilliance. Keyboardist David Hedriana utilizes piano, organ, and synthesizer to guide the band through stunning chord progressions that can conjure both celestial heights and subterranean depths in the course of each song. The rhythm section of Brian Chomka (bass) and Mark Musselman (drums) molds the explosive mixture into towering rhythmic sculptures that take the form of shifting time signatures, polyrhythmic latin grooves, and dense, molten funk. The combined sound of all five members creates landscapes that are cerebral and thrilling, extraterrestrial and organic, beautiful and torrential.

In the band's short three-year history they have become one of the premiere acts on the Bloomington scene, performing frequently at major local venues like the Bluebird and even earning the opportunity to perform at Chilicothe, IL's Summer Camp Music Festival (May �09) with the likes of jam titans Moe. and Umphreys McGee. Spacesuit's live shows are not to be missed, as they deliver a concise blend of the band's sophisticated compositions and soaring, frenetic improvisation. The band is currently at work on their debut album (to be released in 2010), an anticipated and boundary-pushing introduction to the music of this quickly-rising group of young artists.
