Rebecca Day - Singer Songwriter



Rebecca Day is a singer, songwriter and recording artist based in Jacksonville, Florida. Originally from South Carolina, Day moved to Jacksonville with her family in 2002.
Day graduated from Douglas Anderson School of the Arts in 2007. DASOTA is a nationally acclaimed school of the arts, with admission by audition. Only a fraction of those who audition are accepted. Day majored in creative writing because she viewed that field as a resource for her songwriting. While at DASOTA, she was the only non-music major to win an annual contest at the school which selects songs for a professionally recorded CD. She composed both music and lyrics for her song, “Things Fall Into Place,” and performed it at various events and venues after the CD was released. 
While at DASOTA, Day also won awards for creative writing.

Day began to play guitar when she was young, starting formal lessons at the age of 11. After moving to Jacksonville she began to study under popular music instructor Kent Smedley. Smedley founded the popular rock band Prodigy, recipient of a Jam magazine award, and his students have gone on to play in bands like Evanescence.
Day attended Florida State College at Jacksonville, earning her associate degree after receiving a full academic scholarship. 
Day has won open mic contests in local venues like New Orleans CafĂ©, and those wins have often led to bookings for her solo act. 

Day is currently recording songs for her debut CD. Acclaimed musician, Chuck Nash, is the producer. She is self-employed, performing solo at venues in the Southeast and sometimes sitting in with different bands on request.

Day is a member of Nashville Songwriters Association International.
