THE DAYBREAKS

With The Daybreaks, Holland's varied sensibility of sound, plus Bond's piano prowess, paired with Jones' bold guitar playing, is at once immediately welcoming and uncharted territory. The blend of Bond's and Jones' voices is beautiful; Jones' vocal power is skillfully matched by Bond's celestial sound, with the combination intensified by Holland's production. The Daybreaks have written electrifying lyrics that intrigue the listener and beg for repeat spins. Lightning 100, Nashville's independent radio, quickly dubbed the band a "Nashville super-group."

The songs are theatrical and haunting, but never melodramatic, with substantive verses that keep the listener firmly on solid ground. The Daybreaks eponymous album is pure cinematic pop.
