“Will Day is a true songsmith with the ability to capture his audience in the stories he sings. A true gentleman of today’s hard music industry, there are exciting times ahead for Will Day and his music” – Country artist Col Finley
SURVIVING a decade as a full-time country artist, providing for his family by playing more than 250 gigs each year, is an achievement that Will Day is proud of.
Australia’s eastern seaboard has hosted the Brisbane-based country artist for much of the last few years, after his musical roots were sewn in the small town of Goondiwindi.
His early life inspired offerings such as Seasons, the award-winning first single off his debut EP released in late 2016, which enjoyed time in the top 10 of the iTunes chart.
This modern-day singer songwriter has had an exciting start to his career and achieved a swag of impressive milestones. His talent and hard work have led him to tour extensively with country music artist Col Finley.
In 2017 Will toured New Zealand for 10 days, headlined the Goondiwindi B’n’S with record crowds and was a finalist in three categories for the current Independent Country Music Association awards. 2017 also saw Will win the Male Rising Star awards at the Southern Stars Australian Independent Country Music awards in Mildura, Victoria.
“Audiences love Will… and with his all-round performing skills, it isn’t surprising. His original songs are thoughtful, well-crafted and polished – Will Day is the whole package” – award- winning singer-songwriter Allan Caswell.
Will’s latest single, This Country Life which reached the top ten on Australian Country Radio, was recorded and produced by Benji Pocock at Vibetone Studios and co-written with Troy Kemp, Damien Baguley and Col Finley. The upbeat and catchy country rock track is the first single from Will’s debut album which is set for release in 2018.
Will has kicked off 2018 with a very successful Tamworth Country Music Festival where he won the award for the most popular EP at the fan voted Independent Country Music Association Awards.
