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 has received airplay from some of Cincinnati's top stations like WEBN and 96Rock, as well as WAIF fm and WUDR, as well as performing at venues such as the Champion's Club at PNC Park (Home of the Steelers) Thompson House, and The Underground. He also had the privilege of opening up for American Idol Top-10er Colton Dixon in Cincinnati.
Day's eclectic and radio-ready music spans a wide gambit from pop to hard rock, often bringing listeners from both camps together with captivating vocals, energetic synths and keys, powerful 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 new music video for The Roses has experienced energetic reception, garnering radio interviews and online press.
Day sings and plays the piano, guitar, bass, sax, and drums and is a proficient songwriter. He also has aspirations in acting and filmmaking, and has done a fair amount of work in digital art.
