Vocalist Grayson Hamm provided his insight on the project’s release, “To sum up Drifting simply is that I’m speaking on the uncertainties and frustrations we experience with the ones we love. The ups, the downs, and all the other stops along the way are constantly shaping who we are as people and how we perceive the world that we abide too. Searching internally and externally to find resolution, clarity, and acceptance of who we are regardless of the outcome and just continue along the journey. As a songwriter I feel this collection of songs is just a chapter of my life and a door I have closed. I’m just trying to do better and improve from here. You can catch these songs live over the next couple months while we are on tour – hitting some of our favorite cities in the Midwest!”
Today, the band revealed the official tour poster for their upcoming dates; which will take them throughout the Southeast and Midwest U.S. A number of new dates were added since the tour’s initial announcement; see all dates below and catch the band live!

Biography: SPACE4LEASE is a psychedelic indie-rock band, ready to lure you in and wash over you with waves of musical seduction. Inspired by lost love, the grace of the unknown, and inevitable life experiences, their music is full of soul-leaning vocals, intricate guitar melodies, expressive bass lines, and eloquent drum patterns, all driven by frontman Grayson Hamm’s tasteful piano playing. Formed out of Oklahoma City, OK, the four-piece’s sound draws influence from artists such as Tame Impala, My Morning Jacket, and upcoming artists like Big Thief, and Andy Shauf. They pride themselves in remaining elusive to the confines of any one genre, and have worked hard at developing their own musical identity and sonic aesthetic.
The story of SPACE4LEASE originated in 2014, when keyboardist Grayson Hamm met the other members while attending the Academy of Contemporary Music at the University of Central Oklahoma. Coming from vastly different musical backgrounds and tastes, the group formed as a unique convergence of influences. They released their first EP Hiraeth in November 2016, a collection of songs encompassing a journey of self-discovery. Buoyed by a blossoming local music scene, the band quickly became known in the Oklahoma region and have toured extensively throughout the Midwest. Derek Brown of The Flaming Lips, described them as, “Fellow Okies that wonderfully mix the blissfulness and melancholy of the great wide open. Highly recommended!” With the fantastical glamour of psychedelic pop influences, but enough grit and grime of grounded originality, SPACE4LEASE is like no other in their blend of refreshingly authentic and enticing music that will draw you close, and hold you tight.
