On Sunday, May 28th we competed in the Road to Homegrown show to see if Modern Daybreak would qualify to be a part of the Homegrown Art and Music Festival. Each act that night was truly unique and talented, which we're sure made the judges' jobs that much harder. The judges had told us two acts were going through to the fest, but after their deliberation, they decided on three. Brad Yeoman had a sweet performance on the acoustic guitar and his personality showed through his lyrics. It was great to get to talk to him after the show! Keep an eye on him and check out his Spotify here. The other qualifying band, Comin Up, was simply a joy to listen to. They put on a great show and are masters of audience engagement! Keep track of their goings-on on their Facebook page. Modern Daybreak was the final winner of the night, and we were beyond happy. Thanks to all of our friends and family who came out to support us, you truly made the night that much more special!
The past few years have been challenging for us as a band, personally and musically. We finally got our shtuff back together and are in a place where we can move FORWARD. Taking action toward our EP (our single is being mastered as I type) and getting into this music fest is exactly the momentum we needed.
All this to say: MARK YOUR CALENDARS FOR JULY 29TH, 2023! Homegrown Fest is such a great event and we would have been there regardless if we were performing or not. Stay tuned for details and how to get tickets.
Keep it light and keep it bright, y'all!
