Andra Day is obsessed with jazz, soul, and rock. The 30-year old singer skillfully weaves these elements into her classically trained vocals to create a modern vintage sound. A native of San Diego, Day attended a performing arts high school while working with various producers to develop her powerful alto voice that has inspired comparisons to Amy Winehouse and Adele. When a tape of a live performance found its way to Stevie Wonder, it blew him away and the musical legend introduced Day to songwriter-producer Adrian Gurvitz.

Day and Gurvitz spent a year together working on her debut album, Cheers To The Fall, an alluring collection of “retro-pop-soul” sounds. Listen to this acoustic version of “Rise Up,” a song that Day describes as anthem to encourage people to be there for one another.

As an added treat, listen to Day’s amazing cover of Eminem’s “Lose Yourself.”
