Days Ahead has co-billed with George Duke, The Brand New Heavies, Chaka Khan, Fertile Ground, Al Green, Lalah Hathaway, Michael Franks, Rachelle Ferrell, Fourplay, Patti Austin and many more. Days Ahead's most prestigious gigs as headliners includes 606 Club in London, UK, Atlanta Velvet Note, Pisgah Brewing Company, Intwasa Arts Fest in Bulawayo, ZI, Atlanta Dogwood Fest, DC Jazz in the Garden, Churchill Grounds, Greenville Motown on Maine, Capital Jazz Fest, Capital Jazz SuperCruise, NY HarborFest, NY Rockwood Music Hall, Atlanta Vino Libro, Apache Cafe’, Atlanta Center Stage, Huntsville House of Brews, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, Rialto Center, and Mobile BayFest.

Days Ahead has been featured live on ZBC Zimbabwe TV, BET Jazz, CBS Better Mornings, & TBS Soundstage. 

Nominated as Best Duo/Group of the year by SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Awards and Best Band & Best Album of the year by RockWired Awards, and landing at #4 and #5 on CMJ Jazz charts and #12 on JamBand charts, with the release of their debut cd Turning Point, Days Ahead has toured performing original music concerts and garnered continual radio play in the USA, UK, Netherlands, Germany, France, and Italy as well as in Zimbabwe, Africa. 

With a musical style self-coined as "Jazz-n-Roll", a Jazz approach to Rock and Soul music, Days Ahead's recorded material and live performances will take you on a jamband ride of sonic sounds and emotions as Steve & Kim duo, or with their ensemble, leap musical landscapes from jazz to rock to gospel to soul in a seconds notice, with a nod to folk and reggae, on a visceral yet cerebral musical playground, while stretching and twisting the songs into their special arrangements of meter changes, extended forms and improvisation; all while maintaining the groove and one cohesive voice. Their songs are about the human condition, seeking to understand one’s purpose (Self), seeing the aesthetics of diversity which can naturally unveil similarities, all in the name of love.  These sentiments and emotions are echoed through their use of harmony, rhythm, melody and lyrics. 

Steve & Kim share their story through their music, a multi-cultural sense of expressive love and life. Music is their bridge to communication and action, their cause to movement. The “Jazz-n-Roll” Movement…built on the rich history of cultural, generational, gender, & genre-bridge gapping of the ancestors. “Jazz-n-Roll” is a musical gumbo! 

It is Steve & Kim's mission to spread their music throughout the US and around the globe as performers, teaching artists, and MUSIC HEALTH HEALERS.

Reviews

Contemporary Jazz (Rob Young)

"Turning Point by DaysAhead features the compelling voice of Kim Wright and energetic artistry of guitarist Steve Wright...a near perfect marriage artistically...high energy music with lyrical substance that rocks embroidered with the fabric of jazz, soul and occasional Latin influences."

 

Rockwired (Brian Lush) 

"DaysAhead's sound is the combination of vocalist Kim Wright's impressive command of that indefinable voice that goes from gospel, to soul, to jazz and to rock in a seconds notice; and the dexterity of guitarist and partner-in-crime Steve Wright. Who knew such sounds, textures, and imagination could come from just six strings."

 

Funjunkiez (Alfie da Funkjunky)

"DaysAhead deliberately seeks to cross the genre boundaries...touching, emotive and walks the line between jazz and soul quite sublimely...strong and vibrant and catchy...excellent musicians and a great vocal talent...remind you of The Brand New Heavies."

 

Jazz-not-Jazz (Dirk Binsau) 

"DaysAhead's own blend of soul, funk and rock is a welcome breath of fresh air...a distinctive sound that’s left field from the soul mainstream in a refreshing way."

 

RhythmFlow (Michael Heyliger) 

"DaysAhead revives the spirit of the golden era of bands from the 70's & 80's...an air-tight band and a bewitching front woman."

 

Bayfest Music Festival (WALA TV)

"Music lovers poured into downtown Mobile to hear the tunes of their favorite artists like DaysAhead, who got the crowd excited."

 

EyeDrum (Priscilla Smith, Executive Director)  

"DaysAhead got rave reviews from everybody on the Atlanta BeltLine. They truly rocked with hot guitar solos, and a rhythm section with deep soul. Kim holds nothing back in her vocals and has the chops to pull it off."

 

Richmond Music and Arts Festival (Clarence Nicholas, Director) 

"Special Guest DaysAhead has a jazz-rock-soul sound all their own...this band brought good music crossing all ages, genders, and cultures. It's what the people, young and old, want and need to hear."
