As a teenager, Scott picked up the bass guitar on a whim. Natural talent and the lure of a challenge drove him to be the best musician he could and discover his love for singing, songwriting and the upright bass. With the encouragement of his teacher, he went on to study music in college.
Scott moved to Nashville after school, and he would meet American music icon Ricky Skaggs and join his Grammy winning band, Kentucky Thunder. He toured with Ricky for five years, and in that time, first started writing songs on his upright bass.
He has shared the stage with some of the greatest artists of modern music, such as: Alison Krauss, Barry Gibb of the BeeGees, Bruce Hornsby, Brad Paisley, Peter Frampton, Steven Curtis Chapman, Emmylou Harris, Dave Barnes, Ben Rector, and many more.
Scott’s songs have received honors or been featured in NPR’S Tiny Desk Contest, the International Songwriting Competition, John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and American Songwriter Magazine’s 30th Anniversary Contest, and he has had numerous cuts on other artists’ albums.
He’s currently touring in support of his September release, Top Of The Stairs(EP), which was produced by himself, Charlie Peacock (The Civil Wars, The Lone Bellow) Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Sarah Jarosz), and Shani Ghandi (Sarah Jarosz).
When Stephen Day performs he exudes an ethos that captivates the audience to another level. The twenty-two year old Georgia native is clearly the middle ground product of his contemporary influences. His crooning vocals matched with his eccentric stage presence bring you to a place where you’ll find the perfect combination of John Mayer and Allen Stone come to life. Noisetrade has even proclaimed, “Stephen Day is an artist that comes along once every decade.” The soulful singer-songwriter is best described as the New Retro.
Day’s musical journey started back in 2014 when he moved to Nashville, TN to attend Belmont University. He took his first two years of college to create and record his debut EP Undergrad Romance and The Moses in Me. Each of the six meticulously crafted works were written by Day in entirety. When the EP was officially released in April of 2016 it quickly gained popularity and “If You Were the Rain” found its place on Spotify’s Global Viral Chart. The song peaked at number two and has since racked up more than 1.4 MILLION streams on Spotify.
Day’s new single, “Dancing in the Street” takes him to the next level. The song was co-written and Produced by Nashville-based Producer, Quinn Redmond. The pulsing rhythms and striking guitar riffs paired with Day’s undeniable power vocal have formed what is destined to be the song of your summer.
