Biography

Nine Days is a / band that was popular in the early . Formed in New York by musicians John Hampson and Brian Desveaux in 1994, they released three albums independently during the before their mainstream debut album, ‘The Madding Crowd’, was released in 2000. Their greatest popularity came from a handful of songs from said album (which took its title from the 1874 romantic drama novel ‘Far From the Madding Crowd’) such as the tracks “Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)” and “If I Am”.

Stylistically, the band took influence from both contemporary bands as well as earlier and Bob Dylan-like music. ‘The Madding Crowd’ generally received positive critical reviews and reached the #67 slot on the Billboard 200, eventually being certified as gold by the RIAA. Yet Nine Days’ acclaim ended up being brief. Despite the popularity of “Absolutely (Story Of A Girl)”, which reached the #1 slot on Billboard’s ‘Top 40 Mainstream’ chart and raced up in other charts, the group’s mainstream success quickly faded, and they became saddled with the ‘ tag because of that single’s ubiquitous nature. They’re also sometimes labeled as a ‘ (due to the major airplay of “If I Am” as well).

Their next album, ‘So Happily Unsatisfied’, was scheduled for a release in 2002. Unfortunately due to complications with their label, Sony Records, this album became delayed and the group was no longer in possession of the rights of the songs.
