Los Angeles, CA - Acclaimed singer/songwriter Spencer Day returns to his musical roots with his fifth full-length album Daybreak, and his first independent album in seven years. His past two albums were released on the legendary Concord/Jazz label. With Daybreak, Spencer has created an album of signature interpretations of well-loved songs from the 1960’s along with five brand-new compositions written in homage of these classic American tunes.
There was a time, a sound, a feel, and a sensibility that defined the
California mid-century experience. Spencer calls Daybreak his “top-down
Chevy convertible on the Pacific Coast Highway” album, evoking 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.
Spencer Day is widely regarded for his original songs that blend
compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements. For Daybreak,
Spencer has crafted five new works that blend seamlessly with the cover
tunes to create a moving tribute to that special time and place that
gave rise to so many musical gems. Audiences around the world have
enthusiastically supported Spencer 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, Feinstein’s in San Francisco, Tanglewood, the Craig
Ferguson Show and at music venues and festivals across the U.S. and
worldwide. Spencer has a widely diverse and enthusiastic fan base in the
U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.
Missing Tonight is the first single from Daybreak to be released to
radio, and it reflects Spencer’s roots in the Great American Songbook,
with a contemporary, upbeat twist that has become Spencer’s signature
sound. Written with legendary composers Bill DeMain and Larry Goldings,
Missing, with its jazzy feel and persuasive lyrics, evokes the
of a new relationship and the universal allure of limitless possibilities.
Spencer will tour extensively with his band on his Daybreak CD Release
tour beginning May 10th in Georgia and continuing in San Francisco, New
York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Orange County, Europe, Mexico
(2015) and other venues and festivals in the U.S. and abroad.
The album’s first single Missing Tonight debuted tied for # 3 most added
on Billboard Magazine’s Smooth Jazz chart the week of its release.
Daybreak will be released “Direct to Fans” via Spencer’s website on
Friday May 16th, 2014 and Digitally and Physically, worldwide on June 10th, 2014.
