She has been raised from the production labels of Buskin and Warner Bros in which she has created her debut album 'Cheers To The Fall' released on August 28 of last year. Her varied music style includes blends of genres, including American soul, R&B, jazz, blues, disco and pop.

A recent project for Day was being commissioned for the recent film MERU in which she wrote and performed the song 'The Light That Never Fails'. The film follows the story of three climbers who attempt the feat of climbing Mount Meru exposing their grapples with obsession and loss. Meru is a treacherous mountain in the Himalayas and the film shows the incredible challenges in endeavouring to reach the summit.
