Nine Days (stylized as ninedays) is an American rock band from Long Island, New York. It was formed in 1994 by John Hampson and Brian Desveaux, and released three independent albums in the 1990s before their mainstream debut album, The Madding Crowd, released in 2000. The band scored a hit in the United States from the album The Madding Crowd, with the single "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)", which reached number six.

A second mainstream album, So Happily Unsatisfied, was scheduled for release in 2003. However, due to complications with their record label, Sony, the album was never actually released as the band was no longer in possession of the rights of the songs. In 2006, Nine Days' official website updated with a statement that the album would finally see an actual release, but no other specifics were given.

After the split with Sony, the band released another album under their own record label titled Flying The Corporate Jet.

Although the band is for the most part still together and occasionally performs shows, both vocal artists, John Hampson and Brian Desveaux, have pursued solo careers.

In mid-August 2006, Nine Days reunited and went back to the studio to record. Slow Motion Life (Part One), a new EP with 6 songs, was released on January 19, 2007.

In July 2016 Nine Days released a new album called Snapshots, which included an updated 'sweet sixteen' edition of "Absolutely (Story of a Girl)".


Hampson was most recently working on a follow-up full-length solo album. The album has been promised for the past several years, with the release date being pushed back repeatedly due to Hampson's busy schedule juggling school, family, and music. However, Hampson does have copies of this album on hand at concerts.. Hampson continues to do live shows (both solo and with Nine Days) and post on the Nine Days message board through his website. A few demos of the upcoming album are on the internet for legal download, along with unreleased music by Nine Days and Brian Desveaux, bandmate of Nine Days. Brian Desveaux is writing, recording and performing for himself and other artists in Nashville, Tennessee.
