Lazy Daze are a three-piece band based in Glastonbury, Somerset. All songwriters, the trio produce beautiful songs woven together by heart-felt harmonies and memorable melodies.
The influence of The Beatles and the Eagles can be heard in their harmonies, alongside that of Bruce Springsteen when you listen to the lyrics and vocal style of guitarist, lead singer and main songwriter, Davy. James and Gareth form the rhythm section, where again The Beatles influence shows in James’ drumming and Gareth’s bass playing, with subtle hints that Gareth has been a longtime fan of The Jam. This collaboration of different styles produces a unique blend of blues, rock and folk, all underpinned with a soulful vibe.
A Lazy Daze gig is very much a shared experience between performers and audience. Davy, James and Gareth have a tangible connection on stage, a connection they warmly invite the audience to share.
The overall effect may be best expressed by comments made by audience members at recent gigs:
“Beautiful songs. They sound totally famous!”
“Oooh, this is different.”
“That song brought goose bumps…”
The band are currently working on James’ solo album, due out on 1 May 2019, and plan to follow that up with solo releases from Gareth and Davy and closing the year with their first full album.
Below you will find a short making of slide show, tracks from their debut EP ‘Waters Rise’ (available as a Limited Edition CD or Digital Download) and some live videos from their Acoustic Kitchen Sessions.
In recent years they have performed at:
Glastonbury Fringe Launch Party in Glastonbury Abbey
Priddy Folk Festival

as well as at numerous pubs and clubs.

They have 2 hours of material so can happily perform an evening of original songs, or appear as part of a line-up. James, their drummer, can play full-kit or, for smaller spaces / venues, Cajon. They can also provide a PA and, if required, bring along their sound engineer, Mark O’Sullivan.
