Music brought us together and here we are...

Rising out of Southern California’s San Fernando Valley directly from the souls of a life long partnership...

Mini Diaz and Jorgen Carlsson met at The Grove School of Music in 1991. Jorgen was enrolled in the bass program while Mini worked there as a supervisor for the students in the recording engineering program. They hit it off so well, they became life partners. Mini writes, sings, plays guitar, ukulele and has occasionally been playing the role of a co-producer and recording engineer.  Jorgen produces as well as writes, engineers, and plays various instruments.  In the turn of the millennium, two records were conceived when they began to release their independent albums in the hopes of getting a publishing deal for the studio band they affectionately call “Little Days”.  In 2008, Jorgen joined Gov’t Mule, but in between a busy touring schedule these last several years, they have found time to rekindle Little Days and continue working on new song ideas.

Jorgen and Mini have put together a collection of songs for the studio project called Pop & Tacos coming out spring in 2019. These recordings hold a familiar retro sound-perhaps it’s a missing tape reel found in a vault circa 1978 paying homage to bands like ABBA, Pink Floyd and 10cc, yet undeniably unique while Little Days beckons the listener to simply dive in and enjoy their own ride.

The duo have their own hybrid recording studio called Roger’s Boat using both the digital platform as well as a 24-track analog machine in the making of Pop & Tacos.  Their new release brings their collective affinity to the music they grew up loving to listen to. 

In January of 2019 Little Days was asked to perform at Gov’t Mule's annual Island Exodus in Jamaica coinciding with guest hosting their own show on SiriusXM JamOn’s “Roll your own” where they invited The Heartbreaker’s drummer Steve Ferrone and touched on how they ended up getting fellow Heartbreaker guitarist Mike Campbell to record for one of Little Days’ tracks.  A few years back, Jorgen started another project called Nerve Bundle with Toto’s guitarist Steve Lukather who also recorded guitar on 2 songs for Pop & Tacos, one of which also has Warren Haynes of Gov’t Mule playing slide guitar.

Needless to say, the making of Pop & Tacos has been an extraordinary experience for these two lost kids of the 60’s & 70’s...
