Album Notes
The Daylights: bio

There is a new band in Los Angeles. Unafraid and optimistic, The Daylights are a three-piece demanding attention, whether they mean to or not. Ran Jackson (guitars/piano) and his brother Ricky Jackson (bass/guitars) split time at the mics, while Adam Farley sits content to beat the paint off his drum kit. After just a year in LA, the band is packing out clubs and drawing loyal supporters nationwide. With the release of their first offering, The Shift and Blur EP, The Daylights set a daring tone, being just as much inspired by The Beatles and Led Zeppelin as they are by John Steinbeck, Radiohead or even Frederic Chopin, for that matter. It is music that is vast and cinematic in nature, inevitably becoming a sort of soundtrack to life. The Daylights' trademark: giant melodies that sink in for days. The band recently signed with Daylight/Epic Records and are currently in preparation to record their first full length LP. Expect a national release date sometime in early summer '07.

Appeared at:
New York - Mercury Lounge, Arlene's Grocer
L.A. - The Viper Room, The Troubadour, The Roxy, The Whisky, & Café Largo
Nashville - Exit/In, 12th & Porter, Dancin' in the District, 3rd & Lindsley
Austin - SouthXSouthwest

Best CD that I have listened to in a long time!!!
This album is very eclectic with great melodies. They don't have a definitive sound which keeps the album from becoming monotonous. They sound like Third Eye Blind, Rooney, Zero 7, Jeff Buckley, or Radiohead in any given song. I can't wait for their next album. Thanks to the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson for giving them some national exposure.


pretty good
i bought the CD for the song "outsider". the other songs on the CD are alright but the only one that stands out for me is track one "outsider".

***Welcome These Ousiders Into Your CD Collection***
Shift & Blur is cruising under the radar right now but soars above just about everything else that was released this year. The first cut "Outsider" acknowledges and celebrates uniqueness with a great mid-tempo melody complemented by lyrics that liberate. "If Words Were Bullets" is fun & clever. The "Boy On The Moon" will break your heart when he tells his tale backed by beautfully melancholy arrangement and instrumentation. Anyone in love will find the ironic misery that lingers throughout "Happy" all too familiar. Finally, "You Know Who You Are" ends the CD on a hopeful note with great vocals, guitar, and simulated strings. I hope the guys will fill out the last cut with more percussion and maybe a little electric guitar. It would make a great ballad reminiscent of "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls. Ran, Ricky, Adam & Co. have assembled a musical package of refreshing musical diversity with sincere expression and skillful storytelling. Shift & Blur is in my top 5 CDs released in 2004. The Daylights have a new fan!


rocking my world and making all my dreams come true.
I love the CD, the service to get the CD, and everything that each involves. The music is fantastic. CD Baby and The Daylights (Shift and Blur EP) rock by world.


WOW!! best album I think I've ever bought.
This is the first time I've bought a CD and loved every song! The songwriting is amazing and you guys sound phenomenal! I can't believe you don't have a record deal already- you will soon though. Good luck and God bless.

It only took twenty seconds of play to do a little Shift and Blur
I love this sound. A salute to the early 80's Brit Pop sound with a Beatles influence thrown in. Intelligent writing. (Lennon without the bitter sweet depression maybe? Hmmm...) Twenty seconds into "Outsider" and I wanted to click, "add to cart" right away, but, rather than be impulsive I also gave "Weapons," "You Know Who You Are," and "Boy On The Moon" a listen too. I was sold. Now I really want to catch them live next time I'm down in L.A.....Lovin' The Daylights.


I love this CD and the band itself! Outsider is my favorite song of all time by far! Great job guys!


I'm in love with it!
The Daylights Ep is awesome, I can not believe this guys are not signed by a major label, they much derseve the support. Honestly it's one of the best cd's I've purchased in the last 6 months.

Shift and Blur
I first saw this group open for OneRepublic in Columbus, Ohio and was blown away by their haunting melodies. Usually the opening bands are a time to go to the bathroom and get snacks, but this band caught my attention and held it. Their powerful ballads, each building on the momentum from the last had me screaming for them by the end of the performance. The band also has excellent stage presence and knows how to work and audience. After their performance I bought their Limited Edition EP, available only at the shows and was mesmerized on the drive home. The next day I was online buying Shift and Blur and singing along. I also met the guys after their performance and they signed my cd. They were really sweet which only made me love them even more. I recommend any lover of good music pick up this cd and try to catch one of their shows to see them live. I can't wait until they come back to Ohio.

This is some gooood stuff. Amazing music.
Whether you are breaking free from being held captive in the trunk of a Lincoln Town Car, hauling firearms across the Valley, or cruising the hood in search of you homees, this is the music that will carry you along--no matter the situation.
