Daysahead, a rock, jazz and soul-infused band that has made an indelible impression in the indie music industry, has joined Missile Productions, a multi-genre, live music booking agency with more than 170 bands on its roster.
“Missile Productions is a great fit for our music and we look forward to partnering with them to broaden our fan base in the Northeast,” said Steve Wright, co-founder and lead guitarist for Daysahead.
Based in Baltimore, Md., Missile Productions (missileproductions.com) specializes in Mid-Atlantic tours, representing a range of genres that include jazz, rock, soul, world, blues, swing and zydeco. “I’m glad to have Daysahead on board,” said Michael Lipman, founder and president of Missile Productions. “I felt that they had a rich sound which was moody and smooth at the same time . . . something that Missile Productions was missing in its lineup.”
Daysahead has showcased their unique “Jazz-n-Roll” sound, in front of diverse audiences, at a number of high-profile music events in 2009 including the Intwasa Arts Festival in Zimbabwe, Africa where they were the only American group to represent the U.S. Embassy and the Capital Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C. Another performance highlight was a featured gig at CNN’s “Black in America” documentary series premiere in Atlanta.
In addition to touring, Daysahead is currently working on their second album.
Songs on the Daysahead debut CD "Turning Point" weave a tapestry in and around love, acceptance of cultural differences, and understanding one’s purpose and destiny. Since its independent release in 2006, "Turning Point" has received critical acclaim in the U.S. and abroad. Daysahead (daysaheadmusic.com) has shared their distinctive brand of music with audiences across the country including at the Capital Jazz SuperCruise (Bermuda), Jazz in the Garden in Washington, D.C., Bayfest Music Festival in Mobile, Ala., Harborfest in Oswego, N.Y., and the National Black Arts Festival, the Atlanta Jazz Festival series and Montreux Jazz Festival in Atlanta.
