Bio

Perth’s Demon Days are the exciting five member Jazz Funk/Neo Soul collective set to captivate audiences and “transform any group of 20-somethings into an appreciative audience of jazz cats” (themusic.com.au). The group garner influences from Hip Hop, Soul, Funk, Jazz, Fusion, and everything in between.

The band have earned a solid place in the Perth scene in under two years of existence, appearing on line-ups in almost every venue in the western capital. They’ve played alongside some big names as well, including Nai-Palm, Willow Beats, Sex on Toast, POW Negro, Stella Donelly, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, and have played on festivals including Falls Festival, Groovin The Moo and Fairbridge Festival.

In 2017 the band earned 2 nominations at the WAM awards for “Best New Act” and “Best Urban Act” and vocalist Bella Nicholls warned a nomination for “Best Vocalist” at the 2017 NLMA’s.

Their debut single Lost In Translation, received praises from Triple J and RTR and was bought home with a sold out launch, as was Hurricanes of Light. The band have gone on to take their knowledge and work on their follow up single Killer Bees, which received yet more praise and landed air-time and rotation with numerous community radio stations Nationally including 3RRR, FBi, RTRfm, Radio Adelaide and 4ZZZ.

In November of 2017, Demon Days signed with Dominic Miller of renowned agency New World Artists and have since toured the country playing to packed venues nation wide.

The band is now gearing up for the release of their debut EP Magic Eye in August of 2018, produced by Grammy award nominated engineer Nick Hererra (Hiatus Kaiyote, Jaala, Sex On Toast).
With an eclectic mix of styles and influences, the band has flourished into something greater than the sum of it’s parts, with a high-energy live set with dexterity and the chops to show it. Demon Days have their sights set high and won’t be stopped.

I never like saying effortless, because it assumes no effort has gone into making the music and clearly there's a lot going on here! But this rolls so smoothly and dances around so many great jazzy curves.. it's a pleasure to be on the ride.
