Much of the collaboration between Adam, Jesse, David and AJ (DSA) revolves around spiritual and eternal theories of the divine nature inherent in all the forms of human artistic expression. We are aware that simply establishing catchy musical phrases, witty lyrics, and memorable airs for the masses, is not nearly enough to justify our love of the art form. Our vision is to provide an alternative; a highly thoughtful and channeled expression of music as pure energy and love.To those who share these ideals, we have planted the seeds and ask you to join us in the effort of sowing them.

Friday, December 12
Daylight Savings Account is playing its first Dubuque Gig since the release of their EP Phone Home EP at the Voices Warehouse Gallery Last June. Daylight Savings Account draws on a variety of influences from classic hard rock, prog-rock, and psychedelia to more modern strains of indie rock. The group avoids channeling any one genre as young bands sometimes do, instead integrating their various influences into a layered, complex sound that is their own. Chad says, "Daylight has continued to evolve, and improve. Adam Hartig is one of the most natural vocal talents Eastern Iowa has seen in recent years."

Voices Warehouse Gallery
Dubuque indie band Daylight Savings Account celebrates the release of their new EP with a performance at the Voices
Warehouse Gallery, Saturday, June 7, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Also performing will be local band BlackBloom and Cedar Falls trio 3 Lbs. Of Love. Being held in a
warehouse gallery space, the event will also feature a an exhibit of artwork by Dubuque painter Carey Welch, Dubuque photographer Karina Schroeder, and Colombian-born Clarke College graphic design student Ivonne Simmonds.
Daylight Savings Account consists of Adam Hartig (vocals, keys, guitar), David Pauly (lead guitar), Adam Zeimet (drums and
percussion) and Jesse Luke (bass & cello).
Hartig and Pauly were next-door neighbors growing up and have been longtime friends and musical collaborators, writing original
material and playing in a four-piece band, Acouasm, that eventually disbanded as people graduated from school and moved on.
Having known Jesse Luke since high school, Pauly contacted the music performance major, who was at the time finishing a degree
in cello performance. Luke knew of a drummer, Adam Zeimet, a recent graduate from Clarke with a Music Performance degree in percussion and the band that became Daylight
Savings Account was formed.
With a back catalog of original material, the band quickly set about recording an EP. Pauly was familiar with Dubuque musician and inventor Hans Becker, who agreed to record the band in his home studio, HBS Studios. Pauly mixed the tracks on his laptop. The resulting recording, EP Phone Home, displays the band’s talents
as musicians, songwriters, arrangers and producers. Daylight Savings Account draws on a variety of influences from classic hard rock, prog-rock, and psychedelia
to more modern strains of indie rock. The group avoids channeling any one genre as young bands sometimes do, instead integrating their various influences into a layered, complex sound that is their own.
As an art exhibit, the CD release
event will feature the paintings of
Carey Welch, whose artwork is featured on Daylight Savings
Account’s CD cover.
The Voices Warehouse Gallery
is located on the second floor
of Wilmac Properties Warehouse,
at the corner of 10th
and Jackson Streets. To learn
