Their time is now.

All Day Sucker is the new California sound. Their music is an inspired take on the sounds of the classic rock era reinvented for modern ears. A treasure trove made up of expertly crafted pop songs layered with influences ranging from ELO, Elvis Costello to The Eagles, Elton John and that\'s just the E\'s!

“As musicians, we use the framework of pop music aesthetics to make pop music wonderful, be it through song structure, melody or harmonies,” All Day Sucker singer Morty Coyle states. “We’ve been praying at the altar of pop music our entire lives. Now we’re ready to take our place in the church.”

All Day Sucker are brimming with heady, street-smart yet refreshingly sweet, sophisticated melodic rock. What gives their instantly memorable hooks a soulful resonance are sharp musicianship and a grounded lyrical sense that illuminates mature, authentic feelings.

This isn’t a group conceived in a flash-in-the pan marketing plan, or thrown together to appeal to someone’s idea of a target demographic. Core members singer Morty Coyle and keyboardist Jordan Summers started playing together in high school, fronting bands that cut its teeth in jazz, as well as pop, R&B, new wave and blues classics. While recording original material, they became an underground sensation, performing those jaw-dropping covers at Canter’s Kibitz room open jam in Hollywood.

Eventually, Coyle and Summers decided to get serious with their music career and formed All Day Sucker—although they almost gave that name away. “During rehearsals, we realized that we didn’t have a name, then someone mentioned the Stevie Wonder song, ‘All Day Sucker,’ and we all thought it would be a great name for a band,” Summers recalls. “At the same time, we were friends with Maroon 5, who were originally known as Kara’s Flowers—but they didn’t like their name. We told them to use All Day Sucker, but they told us to use it. It went back and forth for a while until we settled on our respective names.”

With band name in hand, they continued to hone their original material, showcasing their improving musical chops and wizened lyrical perspective. “It was an evolutionary thing,” Summers says. “After listening too much to others early on, we decided to trust our own instincts, bringing in more of our personalities and presenting more rock-pop harmonies that people like to listen to.”

“The difference in our music is as stark as comparing a sandbox star with a professional athlete,” Coyle adds. “In our early songs, we were a force of adolescent hero worship. We were trying to be something that we wanted to be, not what we were. When we finally started All Day Sucker, we wanted to truly represent what we are. Our influences include everything we\'ve ever heard whether it was rock, pop, soul, jazz, show tunes, TV themes or any other music that has fallen on our ears.


Blessed with great songs, sharp chops, a cunning attitude and a mature sense of self, All Day Sucker is ready to venture into the seen-it-all music scene and emerge as a fresh, clever and unique musical presence. “Jordan and I have never been completely starry-eyed about this, as there always has been a certain level of understanding of what we were doing,” Coyle says. “Now we realize that it’s a much a folly for a 30-year-old to sing about hating his parents, as it is for a 16-year-old to explain what’s it’s like to live in real world. At a certain point in your creative life, you have to speak with your own voice. All Day Sucker has enabled us to find our voice.” With a feature article in Rolling Stone, as well as raves in Details, Detour, and many favorable words in the Los Angeles Times, they are known as a “great band, with great musicians, who were even better songwriters”.


“Melodies and lyrics make an impact no matter what style they are in. A good song is a good song and will be remembered far after we are gone. Hey, that kind of rhymes. But can you dance to it?”

-America Online’s Digital City,


Insanely catchy! Been a long time since I could say that a band could pull off the sound of the very best of The New Radicals, but All Day Sucker do that and much, much more(Motown, ELO, Jellyfish, early 70`s Stevie Wonder, Elvis Costello, Prince, Weezer and,yes, more)! Big Time Extremely Highly Recommended!
-Not Lame Recordings

All Day Sucker are an impressive band with spot-on performances, perfectly composed tunes and a charismatic sound overall
-Amy McGill (State Of Emergency UK/USA)


\"The fact that All Day Sucker still haven\'t got a recording contract is a mystery to me! Their charming mixture of soul, pop/rock and some funk is sheer joy listening to. Sometimes it could get a bit too much, and you get some sort of bad \"Sugar Ray-vibes\", but for the most part it\'s fun, fun, fun until the cows comes home! Susanna

Having seen them live plenty of times was a blast already, but driving to work with "blue", going home with "Rub it in" and relaxing on my sofa with "heavy weather" is just...
YEAH! Last but not least, "Die together" makes me wanna get down on my knees at the Sucker's Altar!
Thanks, Mo'!

If there are more undiscovered bands like All Day Sucker lurking out there, powe
Full Review
Mmm... Pixie Stix. Is there a more perfect candy out there? Sure, you can go to your big name candy bars and your specialty gourmet sweets, but you can beat Pixie Stix for their pure simplicity. Loads of sugar with just a hint of flavoring to keep things exciting. No fancy gimmicks, no bait and switch trickery, just a pure, unadulterated sugar rush. Pixie Stix may not be the biggest name in candy these days, but I and so many others keep going back to them.

So much of modern pop music bears that same big name candy bar feel. There may be slight differences, but overall, everyone's doing the same thing. Moreover, they're all dressed up in big marketing campaigns that may be flashy and eye-catching, but ultimately end up hollow and void of any genuine feeling.

But then there are those pure, simple, unadulterated treasures, where all of the please lies in the content, rather than the packaging. Small, independent bands that pack an intense sugar rush into their outwardly plain packaging. They may be on top of the market, but they pack a helluva punch.

Enter All Day Sucker. Right from the very first audacious strains of their self-titled 2004 debut, it's a pure sugar rush that heads straight through the ears and into the bloodstream. The lead-off track, Get High, bursts forth with crunchy power chords and swirling keyboards, reminiscent of the classic power pop bands back in the seventies. Mere seconds into the song, we're clipping along in fifth gear, but that sugar rush really kicks in as soon as lead singer Morty Coyle starts in with the vocals, giddily singing the chorus of "buh buh bah, buh buh ba ba bah, buh buh bah, buh buh ba ba bah" (still the most genuinely honest lyrics in all of pop music, no matter who sings it). It's solid and powerful, rich and layered, without ever feeling forced or overproduced. Echoes of Big Star, Matthew Sweet, Pezband, Jellyfish, and The Raspberries? Yeah, they're all here, but they never crowd the spotlight. Instead, they're here as footnotes as All Day Sucker burst towards us with their distinctive sound.

Power pop fans will find so much to rejoice about here. Throughout the album, All Day Sucker give us that solid wall of sound feel, bearing down on us with chunky guitar rhythms and light, bubbly keyboards. The rhythms are built on equal parts driving drum beats and playful hand claps. They even know just the right way to weave horns into the arrangements, as with the subtle trombone behind the verses in Get High or the full horn section that punches up the transition to the choruses in the heavy blues rocker, Blue (Hours at Canter's). Even when they slow things down, as on the more relaxed but sinister sounding Accident Prone and Heavy Weather, there remains a powerful pop sensibility to keep that adrenaline rush going.

But I don't mean to make them seem like some sort of one trick pony. The album serves up plenty of musical flavors through its three-quarters of an hour run. Rub It In finds the band playing a bit of laid-back, Caribbean ska, while Die Together builds to an anthemic rock climate akin to Elvis Costello's early work. Smooth R&B strains even show up in the album's closer, Soul Kleptomaniac. All Day Sucker are pure sugary power pop at heart, but they certainly don't stick to it so closely that they fall into a rut.

It's certainly impressive that all the songs on All Day Sucker are solid and enjoyable, with no songs that call out for us to hit that skip button. More impressive, though, is just how many of the tracks take that extra step and make the leap to absolutely unforgettable. The opening track takes everything great about old school power pop and brings it up to modern times, with fantastic results, but there's so much more. Take Worst Case Scenario. The mixture of keyboard fueled pop sweetness of The Cars with a solid dance club beat gives the song an undeniable hook, but it's Coyne's cheeky lyrics about a new wave fan lost is a rave club that really sells the song. He sings about the rejections from the women he finds:

? she said you seem really nice but you refuse to evolve
I bet you're still listening to Rumors, Glass Houses, and Revolver
we'll I've never seen Star Wars and I don't think I gonna
get involved with a guy who used to used to masturbate to Madonna... ?

and it's impossible for die hard power pop fans not relate in some way. By the end, we can't help sympathizing with his simple admission of defeat with, "now I'm just a guy who goes to raves and I rant."

Loving Room brings us another sweet, sugary highlight. Set to a relaxed pop-funk rhythm, Coyne and guest vocalist Monique Powell from Save Ferris croon out one of those irreverent love duets like Don't Go Breakin' My Heart or Love Will Keep Us Together, full of playful teasing and sublime harmonies. Deep? Of course not, but along with the song's slight cheesy flavor there's an endearing charm that can't be escaped. There's also Camila Rose, the album's most instantly addicting track. Coyle and his bandmates blend old Beach Boys style harmonies with tight guitar and electric piano arrangements such as might be found on a new wave hits of the eighties compilation. As the lyrics unfold, we get the nostalgic trip down memory lane that every suburban boy born back in the seventies had for the neighborhood cutie:

? this is the ode to Camila Rose
the first on our block to wear fluorescent clothes...
my best friend since we were three
we communicate through ESP
We tried LSD, the trip wasn't bad
until she told her mom
and then her mom told my dad ?

As the chorus hits, Coyle even manages to make the valley girl-esque catchphrase "oh my god, you guys, you know what?" sound, if not deep, at least charming.

By the time All Day Sucker's eleven tracks spin down, the whole album hits us like a breath of fresh air in the modern pop scene. It's pure energy, pure joy, and pure excitement, just like the simple rush from a handful of Pixie Stix. There are no gimmicks, no attempts to cash in on the latest trends, and no filler just to stretch the length of the album. All we've got is tight pop craftsmanship and musicians playing for the sheer joy of the song.

Maybe it's the current corporate climate of pop music that's keeping these guys an unjustly guarded secret outside of their native Los Angeles. Whatever the cause, though, it's a genuine shame. Give it time, though. Next big things will come and go, but this is music simply can't be ignored forever.

ALL DAY SUCKER are plenty polished and impressive. With fun funky riffs, clever lyrics and Coyle's own distinctive vocals, ALL DAY SUCKER is pop art disguised as a party album. The album kicks off on a high note with "Get High", which is not, despite the title, a pro-drug anthem. The obvious single on the album is "Worst Case Scenario", which is the story of a man-child of the late 70's/early 80's trying to bridge the gap... and perhaps bed... a younger, raver-type chick... and failing. The cheeky lyrics and fun pop culture references ("I've never seen 'Star Wars' and I don't think I'm gonna get involved with a guy who used to masturbate to Madonna.") are accented beautifully by the faux Cars/E.L.O. production touches. Other highlights on the album include "Heavy Weather", which ends on an enjoyably shameless Beatles-eque refrain; "Loving Room", the spirited duet with Save Ferris' Monique Powell; "Hey Kid" (Angry Young Mantra) and "Foundation"... the last two of which feature Coyle's most impressive and passionate vocals. By the final track, "Rub It In", ALL DAY SUCKER feels wrapped up in a fun, tidy package which left this listener wanting more.
