Singer-songwriter Howie Day, best known for the platinum single “Collide” from his 2005 major-label debut Stop All The World Now, will headline The Forvm in Amherst on Wednesday, November 6 at 7:00 p.m.
Beginning his solo career in the late 1990s, Day became known for his relentless touring schedule and in-concert use of loop-sampling and effects pedals. He wrote, financed and self-released his first album, Australia, in 2000. The album was named Best Debut Album at the 2001 Boston Music Awards and went on to sell over 30,000 copies. In 2002, the singer-songwriter signed with Epic Records and released his major-label debut, Stop All The World Now, which was certified gold in the U.S. and spawned two top 10 hits: “She Says” and “Collide.” Day’s third album, Sound The Alarm featuring the single “Be There,” was released in 2009.
Day is back on tour showcasing fan favorites, as well as new material from his upcoming fourth studio release, which he is recording with the help of longtime friend and producer Mike Denneen.
