From having fun and jamming in a small music studio located on 14 Batstone's Rd., local rock band Anyday is hitting the right musical note with a record label in Music City.

With vocalist and guitarist Clint Curtis, Devin Robinson keeping the beat on drums and Glenn Thomas playing the bass, the trio will soon sign a record deal with Broken Records.

The musicians go way back, but have only been making music together for over a year. Their debut album, Got Extraordinary, started when the trio began playing and mixing their talents together on a handheld digital recorder.

And when it meshed together, they decided to professionally record their first song titled Heaven Come Down.

"We just looked at each other and said 'what's going on,'" said Mr. Robinson. "So we let that go for about a month and then Clint and Glenn said 'lets start recording.'"

But making music and performing for crowds wasn't the end of the road.

Mr. Thomas decided to link the band's music to indieheaven.com, a website for indie bands to get their music out to the new listeners. After a few weeks, their song Life is Good started to climb up the charts, where it now sits at number one for the last three weeks in the rock category.

"We're not sitting and waiting, we're pushing it and grabbing the bull by the horns," said Mr. Thomas.

From there Keith Mohr, owner of Broken Records, heard the their music and wanted the band to be a part of his label.

"He liked where we're coming from and what we stand for," said Mr. Thomas.

Getting noticed by a record label was never their first goal, said Mr. Curtis. They're first priority was to have fun.

"We enjoy what we're doing (just playing) on the weekends and trying to build a small fan base and have fun with it," said Mr. Curtis.

And building a fan base will be on their agenda when they travel to Nashville on April 14 to play a show on the 16th, and so will signing the record deal.

While the band gets ready for the concert, Joy FM in Fredericton, New Brunswick, recently contacted them to get their music across the airwaves.

"It's starting to really pick up speed," said Mr. Thomas. "It's one of those things we were looking for but never expected."

But it's not all about getting recognized for the trio.

"Our focus is to bring a positive message and go out and have fun," said Mr. Robinson.
