#1 BILLBOARD VOCALIST AND SONGWRITER
WITH THE NEW YORK LAUNCH OF HIS ACCLAIMED NEW ALBUM
" BROADWAY BY DAY"
TWO NIGHTS - JUNE 10 AND 11
CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE - New York's newest hotspot for intimate dining and extraordinary music - will present Spencer Day, the #1 Billboard jazz/pop singer and songwriter seen everywhere from Lincoln Center to the Hollywood Bowl, for two shows on Friday, June 10 and Saturday, June 11 at 7:00 PM. These concerts will celebrate the New York launch of Broadway By Day, Spencer's new album from Club44 Records. Tickets are $55, which includes a $15 food and beverage credit. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street.
Spencer's Broadway By Day - called "an excellent new album" by The New York Sun - features theater songs not typically heard in a pop/jazz context, reimagining them with surprising and creative genre-blurring arrangements from swing to Latin. The album is at once a cohesive reexamination of beloved musical theater songs and a dazzlingly eclectic showcase for Day's various talents and styles. Highlights include a simmering take on Rodgers & Hammerstein's "Bali Ha'i" (South Pacific), an inventive reworking of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's "I'd Be Surprisingly Good For You" (Evita), and a pensive exploration of Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin's "Maybe" (Annie).
Spencer Day is one of the most acclaimed young artists creating witty and sophisticated pop songs in the tradition of the classic American writers. NPR raved that he has "one of the most beautiful singing voices around today." He's also been hailed as "sensual and intimate" by The Huffington Post , "compelling" by Time Out New York, and "brilliant" by the San Francisco Chronicle. The Washington Post praised his "cool jazz sensibilities" and "cleverly crafted tales." His 2018 release Angel City was recorded will full orchestra at Capitol Studios. People.com premiered the video to the first single, "72 and Sunny." A special remix of the song, which was put into rotation by Sirius XM Chill and featured in DJ Kygo's "Palm Tree Summer Playlist," is available on Apple Music. The album's second single, "Angel City," was the #1 Most Added track from the Billboard Contemporary Jazz Chart, in addition to being #1 Most Added track on the Groove Jazz Music Chart. Day's earlier album Vagabond peaked at #11 on the Billboard Album Chart and stayed on the chart for 47 weeks. The lead single, "Til You Come To Me," peaked at #3 and was played on national radio and late night on CBS-TV. His recent album, Daybreak, debuted at #1 on the iTunes Jazz Chart.

New Sounds from the Ancient Instruments of Korea
In partnership with The World Music Institute & Korean Cultural Center New York
"Towering, hypnotic, psychedelic Korean post-rock majesty" is how New York Music Daily describes this edgy and improvisational foursome led by Yoon Jeong Heo, an educator, Artistic Director of Seoul's Bukchon Changwoo Theater, and one of few female masters of the geomungo (a traditional Korean zither, the inspiration for the band's name). The ensemble mixes centuries-old instruments with electric guitar and beats, creating a unique and timeless percussive sound, at once modern and ancient, that is all their own. Black String is a quartet named after the Korean zither, geomungo, with percussion, bamboo flutes, guitar and electronica also in a mix that swings comfortably between east and west, Korean folk and jazz. Led by Korean traditional music virtuoso Yoon Jeong Heo, Black String creates a unique musical language drawing on Korean traditional music, jazz and free improvisation, presenting extraordinary, enigmatic music that wells up from silence and grasps the senses. The group's recognitions include Asia & South Pacific Winner at the 2018 Songlines Music Awards, Best Jazz & Crossover Album at the 2020 Korean Music Awards (Best Performance in 2017), and official showcase artist at WOMEX (World Music Expo) 2016.
