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 just 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, Jungle Love 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 and then in 2018 the band has earned a WAM Award nomination for the debut EP “Magic Eye”.
Their singles Lost In Translation, Killer Bees and No Winners all received praises and plenty of airplay from Triple J and have landed rotation on stations including RTRFM, 3RRR, FBi, 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.
In August of 2018, the band released their debut EP Magic Eye produced by Grammy award nominated engineer Nick Hererra (Hiatus Kaiyote, Jaala, Sex On Toast).
With an eclectic mix of styles and influences, Demon Days have 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.

happy to announce that me and that jaunty keyboard tone are going halvsies in a boat. Yes, it's a big commitment but we're serious.

Bella Nicholl's vocals are so beautiful and whimsical. She has a Jill Scott quality with a tasteful delicateness that reassures you everything is going to be fine.
I also dig a band that can be so present but respects it's lead vocals enough to stay out of their way. listening to this is like watching poetry in motion - fascinating!
