Biography
The members of MayDay Mile intersected in May of 2006. Their paths started years and several states apart, but have converged in Seattle. Rising from the ashes of his former band, Brady recruited Megan Jones from said band to play bass and his co-worker Jeff who had recently become a free agent without a band to handle the drums. In their quest for a guitar player, they found Marc and in their first jam lay the foundations for several songs that the group still plays today. In the fall of 2006, Megan announced her upcoming departure from MayDay Mile to start a family. The rest of MayDay Mile wished her the best of luck and carried on with Jake bringing in a new rhythmic bottom sound on bass. And just most recently Jake has moved on to pursue his solo music career. Now, we have our newest member to date Robin (Red Robin) "Cape Crusader" holding down the bass thump throttle....This is the story so far

The band's “Highly Anticipated” CD ‘Walking Wounded’ was released in July/August 2007. Available online at www.CDBaby.com now!

ROCK mayday mile
Mayday Mile’s lead singer resembles Johnny Knoxville with the same “give a shit” attitude. If that’s not reason enough to check out this band, allow me to elaborate. The band formed just last year when Brady (vocals) snatched up Megan Jones (bass) from his former band and her co-worker Jeff (drums). Soon after, Marc (guitar) joined up, and the band was ready to kick some ass. But Megan left and was replaced by Jake. Are you following?

No fluff here, just good old fashion rock. Relying on heavy-handed riffs, powerful drumming and volume, the Seattle quartet sports the guts and glory that a straight ahead rock and roll band needs. While they are very 21st century radio friendly, I think I could go so far as to call them indie or alternative.

These new kids on the rock block just dropped their debut, Walking Wounded, this past summer. The first track, “Stretch Out on the Back Lawn,” hits you like a freight train with an Iggy and the Stooges pitch that is as rebellious as it is melodic. It’s balls to the wall throughout the entire CD. They go sensitive on our asses with “Pure As,” which cops a LIVE Throwing Copper feel toward the end. Forgiven. — TE
