San Francisco, CA - The music press worldwide is buzzing with excitement about the release of jazz/pop crooner Spencer Day's critically acclaimed CD Daybreak! Spencer Day is widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements.

Spencer has a widely diverse and enthusiastic fan base in the U.S., Asia, Latin America and Europe.
In response to the positive press his new CD has been garnering, Spencer has this to say, “Once again I am amazed and humbled by the reaction we have gotten both from friends, fans and from the media. This has been a delightfully grassroots effort all around and I'm so happy it continues to have such far reaching appeal. In an age where there is so much media noise, the referrals of well-respected friends and critics can be the difference between getting your music out there and having it lost in the fray. Thanks to all those who continue to give voice to our artistic efforts.”
Spencer Day recently returned 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.
