First/Last-A Day Without Love

September 24, 2015

“A Day Without Love has existed in many forms. Started as a solo act by frontman Brian Walker during his college years, the music took on the shape of a full-band when Walker collaborated with Philadelphia producer Jake Detwiler in 2013. The resulting debut EP, “Island”, was a sharp contrast from the mellow acoustic musings that Walker had leaned on in the past – it was aggressive, grungy, and energetic. Since then, A Day Without Love has seen a rotating cast of musicians surround the singer/songwriter for a handful of short releases (“Confessions of the Innocent Mind” single and “A Day Without Oscar” split EP, both in 2014). Currently Brian has recently released his last EP before LP 1 entitled Young Professionals. Young Professionals is a split EP with his old college friend , Sam Christie from Chicago. It is a true contrast between two different forms of underground music, combined on one record. A Day Without Love is currently seeking new members, while playing/touring in the east coast regional area while writing LP1.”

Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?

I have always thought of Pittsburgh to be a golden hill of awesomeness. I have done charity events, shows, and visited friends here and every time I go I enjoy the Primanti sandwiches, make new friends and enjoy how kind everyone is. It’s a good time all around.

Thanks, Brian. Our town’s new slogan… ‘Golden Hills of Awesomeness’! Love it!
