Intent on creating music for broken people of all walks of life, A Day Awaits formed in 2009. Their plans were slowed, however, by broken moments of their own--departures, terrible timing, and just plain bad luck torpedoed plans before they ever left the ground.
But unashamed, battle-seasoned, and renewed, they emerged from the rubble. Intent on expanding the landscape of Christian music with their soaring vocals, blistering guitar riffs, and heart-wrenching lyrics, the band drew from a diverse set of influences (including classic rock, punk, metal, and alternative rock).
Two-time CFA Talent Search finalists (2016, 2018), A Day Awaits has performed at Kingdom Bound, Amplify Festival, Heavenfest, Ignite Festival, and many others, sharing the stage with the likes of Newsboys, Matthew West, Jordan Feliz, Paul Baloche, Sanctus Real, Seventh Time Down, Unspoken, Kutless, Chris August, Remedy Drive, Stellar Kart, and more.
Their song “Shattered Frames” was selected as a finalist in the Overall and Christian categories of the 2018 Unsigned Only Music Competition.
Satellites (2017), their most recent album, was produced by Jeff Quimby, who has worked with artists like Lincoln Brewster, Kari Jobe, Plumb, and Gungor. Their sophomore effort aims to bring a spirit of love and reconciliation to a world that seems to be so desperately looking for answers.
