Editorial Reviews

2009 debut album from the singer, songwriter and pianist. Vagabond is a refreshingly unique album cementing Spencer's reputation as a balladeer for the new century. Vagabond follows in the tradition of great albums by Rufus Wainwright, Norah Jones and Peter Cincotti. Spencer has already built up a name for himself in recent years with high profile live performances including appearances at The Kennedy Center (Washington DC), the Monterey Jazz Festival and The Great American Music Hall (San Francisco). "Put him in the company of Rufus Wainwright, Nellie McKay and other young singer-songwriters who have open hearts and something new to say."-Time Out New York.

Format: Audio CD
Following the critical reception of his previous albums, Spencer Day is back with "Vagabond", an eclectic collection of songs of differents styles and: folk, soul, jazz, cabaret and contemporary pop.
"I've drawn from the Great American Songbook quite a bit in the past, but I really wanted to infuse this album with a more contemporary aesthetic, and also draw on some influences from the early '60s, like Burt Bacharach, Roy Orbison and Dusty Springfield. I wanted to create a sound that could stand alone and not be easily put into one category, but at the same time appeal to a broad range of listeners".
And he has succeded.
One key element in Spencer Day's appeal, which has seen him hailed as a new jazz/crossover star to rival Norah Jones, was immediately apparent from the moment he sang on stage, while he was opening for Rufus Wainwright at the Napa Valley Opera House and at the Monterey Jazz Festival and the Tanglewood Jazz Festival.
Day's first album for the major label Concord Jazz is aimed fair and square at the middle-aged female demographic. Those women who still hanker after the singing legends of the Sixties such as Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Tom Jones and Paul Anka.
Not to mention the immediate comparisons with the new generation of jazz crooners such as Michael Buble, Harry Connick,Jr., Peter Concotti and Jamie Cullum.
Besides his look and personality and performance style, it's the way that Day's uncontrived eagerness and evident enjoyment feed into his music that explains his rapid success, combining as they do with a thorough understanding of vintage jazz idioms and the great American songbook.

This is a wonderful album by a most gifted musician! It's worth listening to any of Spencer Day's songs for the beauty of his voice, alone -- rich, mellow, clear, wide range. His interpretations of songs written by others are heartfelt and lovely. But listen to the quality of the lyrics and arrangements of Spencer's own work (some jointly written with colleagues). His lyrics are clever, poignant, whimsical, profound, and melancholy. His arrangements are unique, beautiful, playful, and haunting. I'd first heard of Spencer from reading a very positive review of him in The San Francisco Chronicle, when he performed here a year ago. I researched him on the internet, and immediately bought his first two albums, enjoying each one. Then I saw Spencer in concert this past July in Napa, where he was debuting this new album prior to its national release -- he is a most delightful and engaging performer. His accompanying musicians included violins, cello, electric guitar, percusion, and bass -- each contributed uniquely to his melodies and arrangements. I loved each of the songs he performed from his new album, plus every other song he played, whether already released or in the pipeline. There was no question about getting his new album. I never tire of listening to Spencer's voice, music, or lyrics. He's currently performing in S.F. again, and this time I'm taking my sister, visiting from out of town. Check out his website -- spencerday.com -- for more information about his artistry and performances. Catch him live, if you can -- he's that much better in person!

Just caught his show in Portland after not having seen him for five years, and like a fine wine he was amazing. I was captivated from the moment he opened his mouth. Original songs and a voice like warm butter generously drizzled over a warm stack of pancakes. Don't miss him. He's going to be huge.

Every song on this album is at least good and most of them are brilliant. "Joe" rips at your heart. "Vagabond" is thoughtful and tuneful. "Weeping Willow" is lush and poignant. "Better Way" makes you wish it came true. His big hit, "Till You Come to Me" is exotic and accessible at the same time. Nothing like a hot, crummy NYC hotel AND a broken heart. Spencer Day has the voice of a Michael Buble and the writing skills of Paul Simon, Elton John, Carole King and Cole Porter. Not only does he write memorable lyrics, he sings them so you can understand them. A radical but welcome idea.

I LOVE THIS ARTIST! His CD's are the ones I always grab whenever I am going on the road for business. Spencer Day's music is very enjoyable. I really enjoy singing along with him. I think I know all the words to the songs on the CD and I can't say that about the rest of my collection. I am really looking forward to more music from Mr. Day.

Wow! Sounds like a very young Michael Buble which I believe met his match! L0L.
Once I heard, "I Got A Mind To Tell You" was all it took for this girl!
Nice easy pleasant vocals one can listen to hundreds of times & never bored or
get tired listening to Spencer Day.

I was unaware of Spencer Day, until recently when I was in my local music store and this cd was in the listening station. So I said "why not give it a try". What I immediately realized is there is another male vocalist for me to admire and follow. I felt deprived, like someone had been keeping a huge secret from me. Who is this dude? Spencer's music is calming, refreshing, mature, and melodic. Musically and vocally, he falls somewhere between Harry Connick, Jr. and John Legend. My favorites so far are Weeping Willow, Vagabond, Someday, and Everybody Knows. Actually the entire cd has moments worth checking out. So as I look forward to hearing more from this man, I will look finding his previous releases at a decent price...wish me luck on that one, as you can probably tell it will be a challenge.
