Biography

Daysleeper, the band, began to form two years ago when singer/songwriter, Patrick Gemkow, and jazz bassist, Alex Austin, started performing as an acoustic duo, including guitar and upright bass. As their repetoire and audience grew, Daysleeper was in need of a more powerful sound. After adding drummer Oliver Hunt, the band spent a short time as an all electric power trio. Presently, Daysleeper has found its unique voice by adding Brandon Thies on guitar and Evan Laflamme on saxophones.

Daysleeper's music is an organic mix of rock, country and jazz, executed with a blend of electric and acoustic sounds, which create the perfect vehicle for Gemkow's powerful compositions and superb vocals.

The world is sure to hear more from Daysleeper in the future. For now, the band continues to impress audiences and club owners at a number of venues in and around Chicago. As their popularity grows Daysleeper is sure to be an important and innovative part of the music community.
