Background:

According to this prog rock trio, "The name New Day Mile is derived from a song lyric, and it symbolizes new chances and opportunities for everyday we're alive."

Born and raised in New Jersey, James Brady took guitar lessons from local guitar virtuoso Dave DiPietro. DiPietro's student roster included Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society, Ozzy Osbourne) and Dave "The Snake" Sabo (Skid Row). Brady's other San Diego bands have included Juiced and Crown 10.

Frank Dolan, a native of Ireland, has worked with Larry Mitchell, Fiction, and Fighting Iris. He co-wrote the Rhythm Knowledge drum instruction series with Berklee instructor and Pearl/Zildjian clinician Mike Mangini.

Bassist Jason Sikora joined in 2007, replaced two years later by Dave Garcia. The group's 2008 EP Damn Strate was produced by Alan Sanderson (Rolling Stones).

Brady and other members formed a new project called Dolan Brotherhood in late 2014, recording new tracks with Sanderson at Pacific Beat Recording. By 2017, he had left New Day Mile and cofounded Aether X, alongside Jeff Smith (drummer for Dazed and Confused) and bassist-singer Michael Alarid (formerly of Aghori).
