Singer/songwriter Spencer Day kept himself busy this summer. He released his fifth studio album “Daybreak” in June and even performed some one off shows beforehand to promote the disc. This fall, he'll be back on the road to support the new LP and will make a Chicago stop. The crooner will be in the city September 9 at Mayne Stage. Tickets are available now.
For his fifth release, Day combined his original tunes with covers of well-known songs from the 1960's. The songwriter re-imagines classics such as Nancy Sinatra's “These Boots are Made for Walking,” Creedence Clearwater Revival's “Bad Moon Rising,” “Groovin'” by Young Rascals, and “World Without Love” by Peter and Gordon. “Missing You” is the first single from the new release. The song debuted at #3 on Billboard Magazine's Smooth Jazz chart the week it came out. This record is the follow up to 2013's “The Mystery of You.”
Spencer Day began his music career in the early 2000's playing at piano bars and retirement homes. In 2004 he released his self-titled debut with his sophomore effort “Movie of Your Life” the following year. The title track won the San Francisco Academy of Art University’s competition for best original song. His third LP 2009's “Vagabond” peaked at #11 on Billboard's Jazz album charts where it remained for 47 weeks. Aside from making music, Day is an activist for several causes including Catholic Charities, the Horizons Foundation, ONEXONE, and the Human Rights Campaign.
