Spencer Day Vagabond

Hearing Spencer Day for the first time, one could initially take him for a Harry Connick Jr. devotee, but as his excellent album Vagabond unfolds, so does Day’s own style. Joined by Ben Yonas on organ, Wurlitzer, and Mellotron, Day proves himself a talented pianist and singer who dresses his music in strong orchestration and makes his voice a definite focal point. That said, his jazzy piano work and solo on the second cut “Someday,” and on the oddly tender “Out of My Hands,” show his unmistakable sophistication on the keys. What separates Day from other singer/songwriters, though, is a uniquely professional veneer to his music, and I mean that as a compliment; the record sounds great. There is a lot to love on Vagabond if you are a fan of timeless crooners presenting stylish tunes. Spencer Day is off to a great start on what could be a fabulous career.
