Today we’d like to introduce you to Tim Miller, Ethan Wilcox and Ashton Gary.
Chelsea Days was formed in 2019 and is based out of Oklahoma City. The band came together when Tim Miller, Ashton Gary, and Alec Hamil met each other while attending The Academy of Contemporary Music at UCO. The 4th member, lead-guitarist Ethan Wilcox, is Gary’s cousin. All with previous musical experience in different endeavors, Chelsea Days draws from a wide variety of influences that inspire various genre-bending compositions. The band has played numerous shows around the Oklahoma City metro and surrounding areas. They have released a few collections of singles ahead of their debut album set to release later this year.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Trying to figure out how to manage finishing up college, working, and just life in general, it can be tough to find time where all of us can get together and explore our creativity. Despite this, every time we step in a room altogether, we are always able to tap into the special spirit that first inspired us to join together in the beginning.
Chelsea Days – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Chelsea Days make music for the people. We are known for our laid back recordings that translate nicely to our eccentric and unique live shows. We like to record with analog gear as much as possible which has become a staple to our brand. We are proud that we are able to remain independent in every aspect. We record all of our music at our home studio as well as book our own shows and run our own social media. This helps us give our fans the most intimate insight into our daily environment. We are currently setting up a cassette duplication business that will allow us to help other local artists create physical copies of their works.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
One of the proudest moments of our career was getting the opportunity to work with Derek Brown of The Flaming Lips. He helped engineer, produce, and even played Rhodes on our single “Girl.” Getting to see his professional outlook on the creative process has made a lasting impact on our own sonic journey.
