Gracie Day released her first EP in November of 2017 and quickly won attention for her songwriting, singing and performances, taking home “Best New Act” in 2017 and “Best in State for CT” in 2018 at the New England Music Awards, an organization that acknowledges musical acts throughout all six states. Also in 2018, Day was a semi-finalist in the international Unsigned Only Songwriting Contest, and nominated in the prestigious Boston Music Awards for “Best Country Act.” Traveling back and forth from Nashville, Day has been recording her latest songs at the famous Sound Emporium, a legendary studio with a roster of everyone from Johnny Cash to Alabama Shakes. Gracie Day’s summer single, “Tennessee” is steadily climbing on Spotify, gaining thousands of plays.
Before her recent move to Massachusetts, Gracie Day lived in the greater Hartford, Connecticut area where she first started performing music and establishing herself in the art community. Despite winning “Best Folk Band” in CTNow’s Best of Hartford Reader’s Poll in 2017, the genre “Folk” does not quite describe the mixture of rock, soul and country in her sound. Day cites her parent’s music of the 60’s and 70’s having the largest influence on her, especially artists like Simon & Garfunkel, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, Etta James, Bob Dylan, records from Motown, Joni Mitchell, Sam Cooke, the Rolling Stones and James Taylor.
