Recorded at the famous Sound Emporium, a legendary studio with a roster of everyone from Johnny Cash, REM, to Alabama Shakes, Gracie Day’s new EP “The Nashville Sessions” was just released in June 2019 .

Before her recent move to Massachusetts, Gracie Day lived in the greater Hartford, Connecticut area where she first started performing music and establishing herself in the arts community. Her episode of the TV show “Amplify” on Connecticut’s PBS was nominated for an Emmy in the New England Chapter. Despite winning “Best Folk Band” in CTNow’s Best of Hartford Reader’s Poll in 2017, the genre “Folk” does not quite describe the mixture of rock and soul in her sound. Day cites her parents' music of the 60’s and 70’s having the largest initial influence on her love of music.
