Biography

Division Day is Rohner Segnitz (vocals, keyboards), Ryan Wilson (guitar), Seb Bailey (bass, guitar, vocals), and Kevin Lenhart (drums).

“That period was disheartening. I think a lot of bands would have called it a day. But we were determined,” says guitarist Ryan Wilson, who along with Rohner Segnitz (keyboards/vocals), Kevin Lenhart (drums) and Seb Bailey (bass/vocals), make up the Los Angeles band (some members have known each other since childhood).

The guys took a year to narrow their musical lens, explore new ways of recording, and hone in on a directive and focus that they could all get excited about. Or as Segnitz puts it, “do that Division Day thing

    Their name is 'Division Day,' but nowhere is Elliot Smith mentioned. Come on, guys.

    They do amazing covers, but I can't find the original stuff anywhere. I'm wondering if that means something.

    I saw them back in 04 open for Dredg in Hollywood and I've been in love ever since, even though all they had released was their little 4-track EP
