Samuel Day's recent Christmas release "Better Than Before" earned over 14,000 views between Facebook and YouTube in the short 9 days it was released before Christmas, and his first music video "The Roses" is sitting pretty at over 20,00 views between the two channels.
Day and his energetic live band have performed at Bunbury Festival, the Champion's Club at PNC Park (Home of the Pittsburgh Steelers), and has opened for American Idol Top-10er Colton Dixon.
Day has received airplay from some of Cincinnati's top stations like WEBN and 96Rock, The Project, as well as WAIF fm and WUDR.
His eclectic and radio-ready music spans a wide gamut from pop to pop/rock, often bringing listeners from both camps together with captivating vocals, energetic synths, keys, and guitars, and even the occasional saxophone solo.
Samuel Day began his musical journey in his single digits. Writing led him to music production, which started with only a Packard-Bell chat mic and and a home PC. Fast forward a few years and a lot of learning later, and Day was producing, mixing, and mastering for bands in and out of state, including heavy metal, funk, and hip-hop acts, contributing arrangements and performances to their projects as well as guesting with them live. All while playing saxophone in UD's top jazz band, and being a church pianist/vocalist/guitarist. During this time he also became the President of UD's StreetSounds Recording Studio, doing everything from from being on major event committees to schlepping equipment. And despite the demanding schedule of a commuter/music major/producer, the dream remained alive.
Day's music has been performed at rock and pop concerts, composer's recitals, and jazz concerts, such as when he created four arrangements of his music for a full big band. It was a hard rock/big band crossover event full of surprising cohesiveness.
His energetic live band brings a new dimension to each song, always engaging audiences with something fresh and exciting.
