The Daymons

The Daymons

Formed in 2012, the daymons grew from a renewed partnership between Chester based singer-songwriters Guy Bengree and Tim Chapman. Tim and Guy were quickly joined by Richard Bratt, another singing, song writing guitarist, and trumpet player “Magic” Jim Donaldson.

Initially working as a four piece acoustic act whilst writing a fresh batch of songs, the band expanded into the finished line up in the summer with the addition of Fran Martinez on bass guitar and Rich Goss on drums.

High-quality song writing, coupled with a unique blend of voices and a mix of acoustic, electric guitars and trumpet have built the band a strong reputation locally following appearances at Chester’s Northgate Festival and Music Earth Rise events.

Described by audiences as a fusion of Indie/Folk/Rock or “Rolkie” (sorry about that) the band continue to write as a six piece, with a pop sensibility and no fear of a big, catchy chorus.

An EP is on its way in 2013

Indigo Sky

Indigo Sky have been officially going since September 2011 when we got into a studio and recorded our 1st EP. Over the first year we had tried to push into the cities around us such as Chester, Manchester and Liverpool. We succeeded and managed to work our way through the Surface Unsigned Festival in the Northern region which lead us to play venues such as Jabez Clegg, Dry Live and Academy 3 in Manchester. Out of the 200+ bands that entered in our region we managed to come 8th and just missed out on going to the international showcase.

Whilst in Surface Festival we were also in the middle of recording where the songs kept coming, in the end the project turned into an album! It has taken almost a year in completion and is now available (Since 13/12/12).

In 2013 we recruited a new guitarist and we’re looking forward to a busy year of shows and new music!
