IR SoCal Presents: THE dAY
Today we present to you a four-piece band from the city of Tarzana (in the San Fernando Valley) called THE dAY.
We’ve been holding onto their music for a while, waiting for an opportunity to properly present some of our favorite tracks from the group, who first came together in 1999 for their first show at a coffeehouse called Lulu’s Beehive on Ventura Blvd.
From 1999 to 2003 the band played at every conceivable venue in Los Angeles and Orange County, racking up about 40 gigs a year. The first album, ‘Souvenir for the Soul ‘was recorded in 2001 but never came close to the vision they were trying hard to reach.
They ended up a bit disenchanted by 2004 with the lack of success for their debut album, so put out a five song EP called ‘Belongs To You’. Fortunately they drew the attention of three major record labels and a few sizable publications at the time, but unfortunately nothing tangible emerged from the fruits of their efforts.
THE dAY is now back recording with an exceptional producer, Craig Sachlem from Theirmusic.com, supposedly with a working album title, ‘No Finer Line’. The band is about to finally put the finishing touches on the vision they’ve been working so hard for over the years, and we couldn’t be happier to see it all happen for them.
