In late 1990, Daly and guitarist John Reynolds, who were working as music journalists at a New Jersey-based alternative newspaper, The Aquarian Weekly, founded Every Damn Day based on demos of several original songs Daly had recorded using a drum machine. Also enlisted were another co-worker, Keith Lyle, on drums, and bassist Jim Van Sickle, a schoolmate of Daly’s who had been a member of four of his previous bands. Lyle was amicably replaced after a few rehearsals by Rich Stout, with whom Reynolds had played in a band while both attended Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania.
Every Damn Day recorded two full-length CDs and several EPs before going on indefinite hiatus in 2007 due to scheduling conflicts. In 2008, EDD was featured on “Beautiful Escape: The Songs of the Posies Revisited” (Burning Sky Records) a 3-CD collection of songs originated by the Seattle alternative rock/power pop group, The Posies. EDD contributed its version of “Help Yourself,” from the Posies’ “Dear 23” album. In 2011, the band reunited for a 20th Anniversary concert in Clifton, New Jersey.
EDD is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2021 with the release of a single, “Audio.” The band’s entire catalog is available here.
