It’s simple, ‘A Day in the Life’ is a music series that’s recorded in an intimate setting with an iPhone. No microphones, no light kits, just the artist and their music in a natural environment.

Formerly known as Mahoney, iamdynamite is made up of the Chris’s (Martin and Phillips). Together they put together one of the best live performances these ears have heard. Having recently moved to North Carolina, they were in town passing through in between a show in Grand Rapids and Detroit and volunteered to shoot for A Day in the Life. The last song was played on Cross St. in Depot Town at a random piano that was on the sidewalk.
