ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
CD Reviews:

Contemporary Jazz
"Turning Point by daysahead features the compelling voice of Kim Leachman and energetic artistry of guitarist Steve Wright...near perfect marriage artistically...high energy music with lyrical substance that "rocks" embroidered with the fabric of jazz, soul and occasional Latin influences..."Tuck and Patty" reincarnated in a quartet setting."

Rhythmflow e-zine
"...Daysahead makes their mark on the scene, with an album, "Turning Point", thats soulful and revives the spirit of the golden era of R&B/Soul bands of the 70's & 80's...(the band) boasts a sound that criss-crosses R&B, jazz, funk and rock to create an intricate and intriguing musical stew...a sound thats both contemporary and timeless. With an air-tight band and a bewitching front woman..."

ROCKWIRED
"Daysahead is all about chemistry; that often times elusive element that makes everything come together. It is the combination of vocalist KIM LEACHMAN's impressive command of that indefinable voice that goes from gospel, to soul, to jazz and to rock in a seconds notice, and the dexterity of guitarist and partner-in-crime STEVE WRIGHT. Who knew such sounds, textures, and imagination could come from just six strings."

SoulTracks
"...one listen their eclectic, engaging brand of music shows that this is an original group bursting with its own distinct style...Using Wrights electric guitar as the musical centerpiece...Leachman, a wonderful smoky-voiced singer...the common theme (is) strong instrumentation and the "live" feel of the performance...the band is top notch and keeps the whole album sounding immediate...Turning Point (is) a great showcase for their expansive vision of popular music."

Funkjunkiez
"Turning Point"...deliberately seek to cross the genre boundaries...touching, emotive and walks the line between jazz and soul quite sublimely...Kims vocals are strong and vibrant and the jazzy riffs are quite catchy...excellent musicians and a great vocal talent...remind you of The Brand New Heavies...I can foresee nothing but successful Days Ahead."

Jazz-not-Jazz
"Daysahead is a band that has truly developed their own sound that sets them apart from the rest of the new/neo/nu soul movement. What may sound odd at first is that they hardly use any keys on their debut album Turning Point. Instead they rely on the strength of guitar (acoustic and electric), bass and drums and of course on the impressive voice of Kim Leachman. And it's this combination of musical instruments and Daysahead's own blend of soul, funk and rock that is a welcome breath of fresh air in today's music scene....a distinctive sound that's left field from the soul mainstream in a refreshing way."

Awesome and Rich! That's what you are!
Daysahead is a group to be taken seriously. From the vocals and acoustic guitar to the percussion, their soulful and unique quality of music adds diversity to the sound of jazz. I hope you start touring so the rest of the world can experience your special gift of music.

Nu-tiful !!
The song "Dont Fall Too Fast" caught my ear and caused me to hunt this cd down and oh it was worth it. The chemistry of Kim and Steve, deep lyrics and smoking arrangements are what makes this stand out from other groups on the neo soul vibe. Reminds me of early Incognito.

After hearing two Daysahead tunes on radioiojazz for the first time ever, I had to order this CD ! Steve and Kim are true pros, Steve with a super guitar style and sound, and Kim's vocal talents, which are just a good as all of the great singers out there !
Great bass and drum playing as well !

Now, I'm just hoping I can see Daysahead perform "live".
And for CD Baby as a distributor - very recommendable !

I always knew she would be great
I can't stop listening. Each time I listen, I hear something new which makes me play it again. I knew Kim would be a star from the moment I heard her sing in her dorm room. I am anticipating more from Days Ahead. This music is definitely refreshing and needed in the industry. I can't wait to hear them live. LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!!! LOVE IT!!!

Wow! The music and singing was very smooth.
I was expecting something totally different than what I heard. I was very impressed with the smooth tone and vocal presentation. A different kind of jazz. this is awesome music especially for the more mature audience. Keep the work coming out. I hope to see you when you tour outside of the Atlanta area.

Love it!!! Great CD, I bought two!!
I buy a lot of indie music, and this by far is the most beloved of them all. After witnessing Daysahead's performance at NBAF's Soul Suite, I was completely taken aback. I was surprised to learn that they were a local Atlanta indie act....wow!!! I can only imagine great things for them.

Inspired, soaring vocals and the band absolutely kicks! Real concert vibe. Reminiscent of Young Disciples. Love it.

Tracy

Kim's voice melted my heart. Steve's guitar riffs and chord changes were awsome.
The songwriting was so progressive and fresh. The music was not your run of the mill, garden variety stuff. It was intelligent, poetically correct, but not so far out there that you couldn't relate to it. Awesome!
