In 2014, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jackson Philips packed his bags, left his previous electro-pop band Carousel, and traded Los Angeles for Oakland. That’s when his musical persona Day Wave came to life. Inspired by a healthy dose of The Beach Boys, Joy Division, and New Order, he started writing on guitar, bass, and drums. Day Wave is a one man band, with accompanying musicians for live performances. In just a few short years, his ethereal dream-pop has captivated thousands of fans and reached international stages, along with appearances at world renowned festivals like Lollapalooza.
