Andra Day is probably THE up and coming music artist based in Los Angeles today. Day’s retro-influenced sound and powerful vocals have already seen her build up a large global fan base, and her recently released cover versions of international hit-makers on social media platforms have lead to a huge buzz within the music and entertainment industries.
FAULT caught up with rising star and found out more about Day’s musical influences, personal style and what her plans are for 2013. …
FAULT: Andra, your story is pretty incredible, you put a few covers out on YouTube and the rest is history, in a way: some important people took notice from the start and here you are, on the verge of releasing your debut album.
Andra: You know, that was not the plan at all! Not that we had a specific time line but, within a week to a couple of weeks the public response has been amazing. I got a call from Ellen DeGeneres and it’s really been a whirlwind since then, adjusting and adapting to what’s been happening.
Did you have a theme in mind for the LP before you started the recording process?
I really didn’t have a specific theme in mind, no. I just wanted to make an album that was honest, authentic and that people can relate too. Songs about heartbreak, for example, and telling that story from both sides.
