Steve & Kim Wright have been creating music together for 15 years, and this husband & wife duo share a connection that's awesome to hear! With a musical style self-coined as "Jazz-n-Roll", a jazz approach to rock and soul music, their recorded material and live performances take you on a Jamband ride of sonic sounds and emotions as the two weave in-and-out of Soul, Rock, and Jazz seamlessly.
Daysahead has co-billed with some of the best in the business including Chaka Khan, Al Green, Gnarls Barkley, The Brand New Heavies, Rachelle Ferrell and many more.
Steve and Kim's courage and comfort to ‘leap without looking’ is refreshing and “revises the spirit of the golden era of bands from the 70's & 80’s" (Michael Heyliger, Rhythmflow). The release of their 2005 debut cd Turning Point garnered rave reviews, national and international radio play, as well as award recognitions. As one reviewer puts it, “The compelling voice of Kim Wright and energetic artistry of guitarist Steve Wright (is) a near perfect marriage artistically” (Rob Young, Contemporary Jazz Magazine).
