Audiences around the world have enthusiastically supported Spencer Day for over ten years at venues as diverse as Birdland, Town Hall and Joe's Pub all in New York, the Hollywood Bowl, Jazz Alley in Seattle, the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, Tanglewood Music Center in Boston, and The Craig Ferguson Show. Day has been a perennial favorite in the San Francisco Bay Area, New York, NY, and is widely regarded for his original songs that blend compelling melodies, smart lyrics and lush arrangements. He enjoys the versatility and flexibility of his music and performs shows that infuse elements of cabaret, storytelling, and comedy with his piano and vocals. The much anticipated release of Spencer's seventh album, "Angel City," is called his most complex concept album to date.

 

 

 

 

Angel City is also the title of Spencer's new show and will feature all-new original songs, as well as concert favorites and a few reimagined interpretations of previous recordings. The city of dreams is built on projections and fantasy, light and darkness. Using the fabled City of Angels as a backdrop, "Angel City" continues Spencer's meditations on love, fame and narcissism. The inspiration for the show comes from Spencer's struggles to maintain his own artistic integrity and authenticity in a world which so often values neither. Incorporating slices of life from the legends and nobodies who built the place, "Angel City" will include some concert favorites including "The Ghost of the Chateau Marmont" and "72 and Sunny." Hailed as "immaculate," "classic Spencer" and "deeply moving and often surprising," early reviews of "Angel City" have been enthusiastic. "Angel City" lyrics and melodies reveal something of a stylistic departure from Spencer's previous records, though listeners will certainly find his unique blend of blue-eyed soul, pop and the film noir moodiness from the classic jazz era.
