Day heads to Bun­bury for a good night

Folk-roots artist spreads wings on na­tional tour

South Western Times - - Times Life -

UP and com­ing Mar­garet River folk-roots artist Tom Day will kick off his first ever na­tional tour in Bun­bury at a secret Bun­bury venue as he per­forms at an in­ti­mate Good Nights gig to­mor­row night.

Day promised fans to ex­pect “a night full of mu­sic, songs and sto­ries” and will share his newly re­leased sin­gle When I Fall, pro­duced by Gelorup’s own award-win­ning en­gi­neer James Ne­w­house and well-known singer-song­writer Dave Mann.

With 18 shows lined up across four states, Day is ea­ger to spread his wings.

“I just can­not wait to start and to just get up and go,” he said.

Day is rapidly mak­ing a name for him­self thanks to his phe­nom­e­nal gui­tar work and foot-thump­ing, en­er­getic stage pres­ence.

The sin­gle lyri­cally tack­les the se­ri­ous topic of men­tal health is­sues and the re­la­tion­ship strains that are rife within the mu­sic in­dus­try.

“It was writ­ten at a time where there was a lot of talk of that go­ing around in the mu­sic in­dus­try and a lot of pretty nasty stuff was hap­pen­ing,” he said. “There are a lot of sad songs about de­pres­sion, so I thought I would write a song that makes me feel happy when I play it, so that was the thought process when I was writ­ing it.”

Day said Good Nights was the per­fect plat­form to tell the sto­ries be­hind the songs rather than “just play­ing to a rowdy pub”. Tick­ets are avail­able from www.al­ways­good­nights.com.
