Carrie Day is an Edmonton, Alberta based folk/roots singer-songwriter who has gained a reputation for her breathy vocals, poetic lyrics and skilled arrangements that channel raw emotion straight to the listener’s heart. With a style of her own, Carrie Day's sound may be described as a cross between Joni Mitchell and Cat Power. Citing musical influences including Sarah Harmer, Feist, Joni Mitchell and Regina Spektor, Day also takes her inspiration from her daughter, who is featured on some of her recordings.
Day’s songs reflect her calling to create beauty, and understand the world around her, resulting in a unique sound that speaks to universal human experiences of love, loss, joy and sadness. A sense of wonder permeates Day’s songs, which enhance the listener’s own reflections on life and what it is to be human.
Day has been featured in local, national and international print (including the Edmonton Journal, CBC and Performing Songwriter Magazine), and is receiving airplay on CKUA, CBC, CJSR, Sirius XM, Now!Radio, and international stations as far away as Ireland and Australia. “A Glimpse of Heaven”, Day’s first music video, was nominated for a 2012 Alberta Film and Television Award. Day was nominated for the 2014 Edmonton Music Awards Female Artist of the Year. When she isn’t performing or writing music, Carrie focuses her creativity on home renovations, cooking, baking, reading, writing poetry, painting and doing yoga.
