Is it possible to make jazz music mainstream? Utah native Spencer Day might be the guy to do that in the very near future.
The astonishingly good looking singer (who also blends pop into his stellar songs) has been in the spotlight for close to 20 years now. He appeared on the CBS reboot of Star Search in 2002 and is best known for his 2009 song “Til You Come to Me” which peaked at number three on the jazz charts.
He has also released six stellar albums over his illustrious career that include Vagabond, The Mystery of You and Daybreak, all of which did well on the Jazz charts. The 40-year-old has also performed on major programs like The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson.
Oh, one more thing. He’s gay, and happy to be so. Spencer came out publicly almost a decade ago but doesn’t see his sexuality defining who he is as an entertainer nor person which he talks about in my exclusive with him.
Spencer spoke with me about his views on the Jazz world in 2019, his sexuality, how he spent Los Angeles pride in a very friendly manor and his excitement over his latest show taking place tonight in California.
