ABOUT ANDRA DAY
Andra Day is ready to share her candid, 13-song tale about truth, fearlessness, vulnerability, forgiveness and love with the world on her debut album Cheers To The Fall (Buskin/Warner Bros. Records). With a vintage flair and voice for the ages, the San Diego native began her career by posting covers of famous artists using her unique blend of jazz, hip-hop and soul. Inspired by artists such as Nina Simone, Etta James, Lauren Hill and Janis Joplin, her alluring, powerful alto has resonated with audiences across the spectrum as evidenced in the resounding single “Rise Up.”
