Derek Day is a screaming, 23 year-old Los Angelino solo artist from Eaglerock , CA that infuses the power of Rock N' Roll N' Other Genres (R&B,Soul,Progressive Rock,Punk) who engages with and captures the audience theatrically. He's on the lead, licky, riffy, stylistic Electric Guitar to accompany his lead, burning, gritty, soulful contralto Vocals. Finally releasing his first EP in Spring 2017, he's been performing over 10 years with influences ranging from Led Zeppelin through Coltrane, stopping for minute at Tom Waits, to Kendrick Lamar meets GN'R while Stevie Ray Vaughan has breakfast with Mercury n' MJ. It's always a BLAST!
For Derek Day, “3” seems to be his lucky number: He had 3 brothers who gave him a passion for literature and music; at age 13 he watched a video of the G3 CONCERT— Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen — and fell in love with the sound of electric guitar; after his first 3 years as a professional musician in LA, Steve Vai saw a video of Derek on Santa Monica’s Third Street Promenade and saw a spark of magic that inspired him to say, “This guy has a nice fire in him…he has a powerful charisma…”. Via then invited the wild, young Pop/Rock Derek Day to open for him in concert on 3 concert dates. So, on Saturday, December 10, 2016, Derek Day got to do what others only dream of: open for his guitar idol, Steve Vai.
