    Spencer Day

    Contemporary Jazz

    Widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements SPENCER DAY has wooed audiences around the world, and they have enthusiastically supported him for over ten years at venues as diverse as Birdland in New York, the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Pacific Rim Jazz Festival in Manila, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Tanglewood Music Center in Boston, and on national television on The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

    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.

    For his upcoming tour dates, Day’s new show Lovefool will take on love gone right, love gone wrong and, of course, love that's fit for song. This versatile and unique show features classic standards, original compositions, and interesting takes on new standards by the Cardigans, Michael Jackson, and more. Lovefool is sure to get even the most cynical romantics in the mood.
