Mayday In-depth Biography

Omaha mainstay Ted Stevens} put time in with a number of influential acts, but Mayday} was his most personal. Stevens} began his esteemed career in the brooding chamber pop} outfit Lullaby for the Working Class}, an act whose trio of late-'90s albums pushed the boundaries of quiet melodic dirges and complex orchestration. After 1999's Song} the members parted ways without officially disbanding, and Stevens} found himself replacing Steve Pedersen} on guitar and second vocals in Omaha's Cursive}. After settling in on the group's breakthrough hit Domestica}, Stevens} went on to assume an even more commanding role with his powerful vocal presence. He also became a touring member of his Cursive} bandmate Tim Kasher}'s the Good Life}. Still, the quieter work of his past wasn't out of his system.

Named after an annual concert that Stevens} and his friends threw on the first day of May, Mayday} was the songwriter's return to his earlier style of composition. Fitting that it also featured a some of his Lullaby for the Working Class} bandmates. Brothers Mike} and A.J. Mogis} and violinist Tiffany Kowalski} all returned to the fold, and the result was a natural progression from where Lullaby} left off. With a cast of players that also included members of Azure Ray}, Now It's Overhead}, Bright Eyes}, and Cursive}, as well as a musical palette almost as diverse as the company, Stevens} put together Mayday's solid 2002 debut Old Blood}. A mix of the lilting and quiet sounds of Lullaby} and detours into Spanish flavored guitar workouts and sea shantey} themes, the disc was clearly a release for years of Stevens} original material that had been gathering in the vaults. Subsequent full-band tours proved that Mayday could be much more than a one-off solo project. Sure enough, the band returned in May 2003 with the inward-turned gothic country of I Know Your Troubles Been Long}, released through Bar/None}. Mayday returned to Saddle Creek} for 2005's Bushido Karaoke}. By that point its lineup included Stevens, Kowalski, Dan McCarthy}, and Pat Oakes}. ~ Peter J. D'Angelo, All Music Guide
