After years of performing and recording as a multi-instrumentalist/background vocalist for various bands across the country, Midwest native Katie Day packed up her life (mostly instruments & Chicago Cubs merch) to head west. It was there that a barrage of growing pains led her to find her voice, put her foot down, and enter the studio to record her debut solo EP, Burn It to the Ground. Burn It has been featured both on Mtv’s The Real World and on the big screen. Following the success of her debut EP, Day once again hit the studio to produce her latest work, Kids. An homage to her Midwestern upbringing, Kids is deemed as “dreamy indie pop” and likened to Washed Out, Tame Impala, and M83. Kids was written (with the exception of Foo Fighters cover, “Everlong”), co-produced, and performed almost exclusively by Day. With such a diverse range of talents, Katie Day is surely an artist to keep your eye on. Currently based out of LA, Day is in the studio working on a third EP due out in spring 2017.
Burn It to the Ground EP – June 2014
Kids – September 2015
By the Lakeside (single) – September 2015
We Got the Fire (single) – September 2016
Currently available on all streaming and download sites.
