Torch song stylist Spencer Day joins host Robin Milling at Henry's restaurant in New York City to talk about his latest release Daybreak; a combination of cover tunes and originals where Spencer blends his signature sultry jazz with a little bit country. He puts his own spin on Nancy Sinatra's These Boots Are Made For Walkin', The Association's Never My Love, Creedance Clearwater Revival's Bad Moon Rising, and Lennon/McCartney's A World Without Love.
Spencer tells Robin his originals such as Naturally and You Don't Know You're Lonely pay homage to Roy Orbison and Dusty Springfield. The writings are a reflection of 'one of the most consistently stable and happy periods' of his life. Spencer candidly talks about his struggles with depression and how he has learned to cope with disappointment in a healthier way. As a result he shares his story, involving himself with organizations such as NAMI (National Association of Mental Illness). He says, 'if you're a sensitive and artistic person the world can be a really hard place to be. If you can channel positivity into your art then what you perceive as your weaknesses can be your biggest strengths.'
Stay tuned for a possible part two of Daybreak which would feature Bobby Vinton's Sealed With A Kiss and Terry Stafford's Suspicion.
