As Matthew E. White traverses the great continent of Europe this month, we wanted to take the opportunity to showcase the people who make up Spacebomb. In the past few weeks, you’ve read a few words about the people who have given so much of themselves, their lives, and their musical voices to Spacebomb. We’ve already met Cameron, Pinson, Sara, Travis and Joel, Trey, Gabe, Scott, Rawls, Jesse, and Dean. Today, meet Adam Heathcott.
Over the past few months, I have realized that where Mrs. Sara Padgett Heathcott begins and where her husband of 18 years, Mr. Adam Heathcott, ends is more seamless than I had ever realized. I had thought that Adam had found his way into our universe mainly through his wife’s unbridled enthusiasm for all things Spacebomb. I have learned, however, that behind every Sara-shaped action is advice, guidance, and the wisdom of her husband. The more I talk with Sara, with whom I communicate more than any person on this earth, the more I see that her and Adam are one united, art-making dynasty, the 1960s UCLA Bruins of mind-melding, and mind-melting creative energy. It is impossible to collaborate with one without working with the other, whether you know it or not. Fortunately I have been working with Adam directly lately, ecstatic that he is part of the team. He brings a skill set and a knowledge base that is incredibly unique to the Spacebomb team, a wonderfully creative thinker who can help us create beautiful dots and then connect them across many mediums. There’s not much time to look back these days, but when I do I can see, clearly, that the path that crashed the Spacebomb into the Hometapes was forged by not one, but two very brave explorers, both of whom have my unceasing thanks. — Matthew E.
