Bio

'Phoebe Day has something special'
- Australianjazz.net


Rising R&B/Neo Soul songstress Phoebe Day, captivates listeners with an alluring vocal tone, emotive lyrics and dreamy soundscapes. Her voice bounces between a velvety lower register and a delicate, breathy falsetto. Day exudes speakeasy, golden-era charm whilst creating a sound that is fresh. Her music flirts with electronic production whilst keeping firm roots in acoustic instrumentation. Imagine hushed percussion, soulful and jazz-styled vocals, shimmering piano melodies and lush string arrangements.

Day's upcoming EP When Flowers Bloom is set for release on April 30th, 2020. After releasing lead single Glow in October 2019, Day has garnered much attention from fans and critics alike. Described as 'effortlessly cool, unapologetically feminine' and 'reminiscent of Sade and Erykah Badu with a nod to fashion icon Audrey Hepburn' (Onya Magazine, AU), one can begin to understand why she's turning heads both locally and internationally.

Phoebe Day is unafraid to blur the lines between jazz, soul and R&B. Day takes listeners back to her roots with latest single Break the Hold. Inspired by the cool jazz era and Neo Soul/R&B queens (Erykah Badu, Sade), Day has created a sound unto her own, described as 'Egyptian silk' by Triple J Unearthed.

After delivering sold-out performances in some of Australia's most established and underground jazz clubs, Phoebe Day was invited to make her debut at the 2019 Melbourne International Jazz Festival and Melbourne International Saxophone Festival. Both festivals featured an impressive lineup of artists including Herbie Hancock and Ambrose Akinmusire.

Phoebe Day will accompany the digital release of When Flowers Bloom with an exciting run of live shows in 2020 including her debut at the Melbourne Recital Centre and the Kew Court House.

You're at a high end bar ordering high end scotch surrounded by high end people. Phoebe's playing this song live in the corner-room stage. The scotch tastes better, the conversation is smooth. This is the sort of record that you enjoy but more than that, it makes you enjoy everything else around it. Egyptian silk, this.
