Audiences around the world have enthusiastically supported Spencer Day for over ten years at venues as diverse as Birdland in New York, the Hollywood Bowl, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival in Manila, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Tanglewood Music Center in Boston, and The Craig Ferguson Show. Day has been a perennial favorite in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, NY, and is widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements. He enjoys the versatility and flexibility of his music and performs shows that infuse elements of cabaret, storytelling, and comedy with his piano and vocals.
For his recent album Daybreak, debuting #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart, Day crafted five new works that blend seamlessly with the cover tunes to create a moving tribute to the time, sound, feel, and sensibility that defined the California mid-century experience. Daybreak evokes the breezy feel of a sunny Southern California afternoon. Classics including Groovin, A World Without Love, and Never My Love have been re-imagined and interpreted in Spencer’s trademark honey baritone voice. Daybreak reflects Spencer’s roots in the Great American Songbook, with a contemporary, upbeat twist that has become his signature sound.
