Bond, Holland, and Jones are all music industry veterans. Both Jones and Bond have successful solo careers; Bond with her eloquent debut album "So Long" (2015) produced by GRAMMY award winner Matthew Odmark, her vivid "Walk Alone" EP, and various international advertising placements, and Jones as the frontman of Lorien, The Young International, and INTL, along with "Open Ocean," and success on NBC's hit series 'The Sing Off." Holland's mixing and producer credits run the gamut from Meghan Linsey, to Sam and Ruby, to Reece Mastin, to Milktooth, as well as INTL's 'Mystery,' and he is a respected multi-instrumentalist.
With The Daybreaks, Holland's varied sensibility of sound, plus Bond's piano prowess, paired with Jones' bold guitar playing, is at once immediately welcoming and uncharted territory. The blend of Bond's and Jones' voices is beautiful; Jones' vocal power is skillfully matched by Bond's celestial sound, with the combination intensified by Holland's production. The Daybreaks have written electrifying lyrics that intrigue the listener and beg for repeat spins. Lightning 100, Nashville's independent radio, quickly dubbed the band a "Nashville super-group."
The songs are theatrical and haunting, but never melodramatic, with substantive verses that keep the listener firmly on solid ground. The Daybreaks eponymous album is pure cinematic pop.
are all the pertinent informational points for Airpark’s upcoming EP release...
-Airpark is a Nashville-based duo - comprised of brothers Ben Ford and Michael Ford, Jr. – that
formed in early 2017. People often think that they're twins, but they're not; however, the
archetypal mystic sibling connection is very much there.
-Alaina Moore and Patrick Riley (Tennis) produced and recorded the band’s new record in Denver,
CO over nine days at their studio, Mutually Detrimental.
-Said EP is entitled Songs of Airpark and features five tracks mostly about confronting and
overcoming conflict, but there’s definitely one tune about lust. The collection of songs will be released
October 12 on the brothers’ own Eugenia Hall Records.
-While in the studio, the group would reference and channel the music of Serge Gainsbourg, The
Zombies and America, to name a few.
-Ben and Michael found the recording process to be truly collaborative and thoroughly enjoyable.
Furthermore, they feel that Pat and Alaina are “the real deal” and “exactly what we hoped they would
-A discerning ear would say the new music feels like a healthy evolution of the Airpark sound with an
emphasis on soulful vocals, drums that groove particularly hard and the occasional nod to ‘70s pop
jams. The first single ‘Devotion’ is a shining technicolor example of all of the above.
-The record was mastered by Mark Chalecki at Little Red Book Mastering in L.A. He’s also worked
with Cass McCombs and A.A. Bondy, whom Ben and Michael are big fans.
-What’s next you ask? Heavy fall touring. The live show has taken on new life with frontman Michael
using a mid ‘60s Hofner violin bass that sounds fantastic and enhances the aforementioned
“particularly hard” groove found in their songs. Witness it for yourself in a major city near you…
