Biography

Herne Bay, United Kingdom (2008 – present, 2012 – present)

Formed in November 2008 and based in Herne Bay, UK, DaylightSaving is a songwriting duo with a sound that combines elements of jazz, pop, folk and Latin. Having been told they weren’t ‘pure jazz enough’ by a UK radio station that shall remain nameless, Richard and Kate delight in describing themselves as ‘mongrel dogs of jazz-pop fusion and proud of it’. That half of their songs sound more like contemporary folk than either pop or jazz is neither here nor there.

In May 2012, DaylightSaving shed two thirds of their personnel to become an acoustic duo with Richard Eady playing guitar and melodica, and Kate Lynn-Devere on vocals, and flute, as well as percussion.
Their lyrics plot Kate’s course through the highs and lows of Bipolar Affective Disorder and describe Richard’s delight at being alive and in love with the world.

    DaylightSaving need your help. They're through to round 3 (semi-finals) of the Facebook competition to get an unsigned band into the charts. Although they're signed to C3U Records, a university-owned label, the organisers of the competition have said it's so teensy-tiny that it doesn't count, so they're eligible - woop! We all know jazz bands don't beat rock or pop bands in popularity contests and they probably won't win, but just getting this far has brought the band some great radio exposure and introduced us to some great people, and it would be so cool to see them get through to the final round of the top ten bands. Please vote for DaylightSaving, and if you have another minute to spare, vote for the band's friends Robert Page and Limeshark (looking likely to win) as well. Thanks! http://www.french4tots.co.uk/unsignedbands/daylight.php
