An up-and-coming acoustic rock band based in Chapel Hill, NC.

Biography


allday afternoon presents Open Ended, their first full-length album. Formed in May 2001, allday afternoon features the talents of songwriters Joel Turner, Alex Rhodes, KJ Straub, and Keith Sigel who collectively cite diverse influences such as Guster, Pete Yorn, Toad the Wet Sprocket, the Beatles, Ryan Adams, the Connells and Ben Harper. The band completed their lineup in the fall of 2001, with Nick Wagner joining on as drummer. Despite busy schedules as full time UNC students, the band completed 2001 with a hectic live schedule, playing several shows a week throughout the triangle area, including opening spots for popular regional bands Cravin Melon and Weekend Excursion. In January 2002, the band recorded the Everything After North St. EP at Studioworks in Durham. Described as “beautiful,” with “priceless melodies,” (leftoffthedial.com) putting the band in “a dreamy, thoughtful league of their own,” (raleighmusic.com) the EP received local radio airplay.
In August of 2002, after several months of intense songwriting and rehearsal, the band re-entered the studio to record Open-Ended, their debut album. Recorded and mixed at Downtown Sound Studios in Raleigh, and produced by allday afternoon and Chip Birge, the album contains 11 original songs. The album will be sold in area stores and on the internet beginning September 26, 2002.
The band has an extensive schedule of live shows planned to support their new release, and recently performed on WXII TV Channel 12 in Winston-Salem.
