Formation

'Halcyon Daze' is ultimately a project conceived by Rob Baxter that consists of a number of transient musicians... The story of 'Decodance' (and ultimately the formation of Halcyon Daze) began after Rob had shown Greg Schultz (a well known local musician) a set of lyrics for a new song. Rob wanted this song to have an 80's pop feel to it, to which Greg duly obliged by utilising his considerable keyboard and production talents. Add to the mix an assorted array of musicians and Halcyon Daze was born. Not to be pigeon holed, Halcyon Daze even turn their hand to a bit of Johnny Cash in their inspired re-work of Rob Baxter's 'The Moon and the Thief'!

Influences

Morrisey, Kraftwerk, Sisters Of Mercy, Johnny Cash, Boney M, Jimmy Nail

Shared Bills With

HALCYON DAZE was born out of necessity when Rob had shown Greg Schultz (a well-known local musician) a set of lyrics to a new song he called Decodance. He wanted the song to have an 80's pop feel to it. Schultz provided his considerable keyboard and production talents to the project and with an assorted array of musicians assembled, Halcyon Daze was born. They derive their music from an eclectic mix of influences infused with sounds reminiscent of 80’s and 90’s pop, with lead singer Rob Baxter channelling his inner Big Red Tractor persona.
