Tom Dalton, Joe Spezza and Robert Heirendt met In the late 80s at California State University, Long Beach in southern California while studying Music Therapy. They forged a bond as friends and colleagues with a shared passion for the healing potential of music, a love for the craft of songwriting, and a desire to make a difference in the world. In the early 90s, after graduation, they all ended up living in close proximity to each other in the bay area. Informal jam sessions eventually evolved into songwriting/recording sessions. Since face to face time was limited due to busy personal and work lives, they began to compliment face to face sessions with collaboration via e-mails, sending midi files as e-mail attachments. The desire to make an album evolved over time and led to the creation of the MT Space band. Being music therapists and performers, MT Space decided to bring their music to those who would benefit most and those that typically could not go out to club venues in the area. As such, MT Space brought their live show to psychiatric and developmental centers, hospitals, nursing homes and convalescent facilities. In their performances, they strove to create a level of interaction and collaboration with their audience, breaking down the traditional separation between audience and band. The MT Space album was completed in 1995 but was never officially released until now. All three MT Space members have continued to create music and have successful careers as music therapists.
