Named after the amount of time they had to record their first record, ninedays began in around 1994 when talented songwriters Brian Desveaux and John Hampson started writing songs together after spending years in other bands playing in and around New York.
Once joined by bassist Nick Dimichino, drummer Vincent Tattanelli and keyboardist Jeremy Dean, the band began to write and record a vast array of songs full of heartfelt emotion, personal triumphs and tragedies, together with melodic hooks, quickly turning this fresh new band into an exciting live act.
The hurried recording of their first album, 1995's Something To Listen To, then gave ninedays the impetus to follow that with an album named after their Monday night residency at a local popular club, Monday Songs, a year later. Further success followed as they were winners of WBAB's Home-grown Talent Search and WLIR's Best Unsigned band competition and with the recording of yet another album, 1998's simply titled Three, it wouldn't be long before the major labels would show their interest.
ninedays then signed with Sony's 550 Music (a label also home to North Carolina's Ben Folds Five) and released their major label debut, The Madding Crowd in 2000, winning the band both critical and comercial acclaim. Due to the phenomenal success of the single Absolutely (Story of a Girl), the album went gold, making the world stand up and take notice of this band from Long Island. The album, named after Thomas Hardy's novel 'Far From The Madding Crowd' contained a range of songs that audiences could not only love but also relate to and so the focus then turned to the writing and recording of the follow-up,
but a dispute with Sony left the group with an album that could not be
released The record label and ninedays parted company.
In 2013, ninedays returned to their Americana roots with a brand new album, Something Out Of Nothing. John Hampson is currently working on a follow-up full-length solo album, and he continues to do live shows, both solo and with the group.
