Adam Wakeman, the son of long term Yes keyboardist Rick Wakeman, was born into a musical family and started playing classical piano at the age of 8. By the age of seventeen he had obtained grade 8 from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music and had recorded the first album with father Rick Wakeman. Father and son toured extensively, the two of them sitting at grand pianos to full scale rock performances with orchestra and choir. At the age of 24 Adam won the Keyboard Magazine Best New Talent award and promptly started a session career of his own in London.
He recorded six original albums with his father as Wakeman with Wakeman, and three live albums. He also participated in Wakeman's tours from 1992, and he appeared in the DVD from the Grand Rex, Argentina as well as 2009's 6 Wives of Henry VIII at Hampton Court Palace.
