Peter Day is a musician and songwriter living in Burlington, Vermont. He plays bass, guitar, trumpet, and sings. He has won Vermont’s annual singer-songwriter competition and performs regularly with The Grift and The Sweet Remains. A wide array of musicians and styles have influenced his playing and songwriting over the years: Paul Simon, The Beatles, Peter Mulvey, Patty Griffin, Dawes, John Mayer, Ani DiFranco, Death Cab For Cutie (to name a few too many) as well as the many talented folks with whom he creates music.
Peter loves songs that tell stories. He loves a clever turn of phrase. But most of all he loves when a song makes you feel something. When a song resonates with you and becomes a fine mesh net for memory and feeling; when the strands of frequency and rhythm and the sentiment and soul of a song intertwine with and hold the emotion of a time and place in your life, that is when a song truly comes to life.
He is always hard at work writing new tunes, so stay tuned (or better yet, become a Patreon:) for sneak previews of the songs for the next album, to be released in 2021. You can find Peter's first release “Break Down the Heavy” (“...a warm suite of songs that could melt even the most cynical hearts." - Dan Bolles, Seven Days Vermont) on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon. Or you can download and purchase music from Peter's online store. Thanks for listening!
