Jazz newbie Spencer Day interviews with Seattle Gay News
He's the freshest face of America's most vintage genre, and the opportunity to meet him is a newstand or mouse click away.
Spencer Day, a Utah-born singer-songwriter brought up in rural Arizona by a single mom who still teaches music, is being compared to Michael Buble and Harry Connick Jr. His vocals are smooth and seductive, his arrangements are sophisticated and dreamy, and his looks...well, you can arrive at your opinion.
Day gives his first headlining appearance in Seattle with back-to-back performances at Dimitriou's Jazz Alley (www.jazzalley.com) on July 28 and 29. Visit the venue's website for admission price and show details. This is your chance to see a young star at a very early point in his career, and we should point out that film scripts are already being sent his way. Interesting sidenote: Peter Cincotti gave his first headlining performance at the Jazz Alley.
Pick up a copy of Seattle Gay News at your favorite bar or coffeeshop or visit www.sgn.org and look for "The Music Lounge" column for an interview with Spencer Day. You can also ear-sample his songs at www.spencerday.com.
