My whole life is a breakup song,” jokes Thomas Day. Though he’s only 19, the Brentwood, Tenn. native has had his fair share of heartbreaks. Lucky for him, he has a pretty great outlet: Songwriting.
“Music is like a cheat code to finding my emotions,” Thomas says. He adds with a laugh, “Half the time I'm running from my emotions. The only way I can really deal with any emotion is to write songs.”
Before he started writing his own music, Thomas knew that heartfelt songs were what he connected with most. His earliest memories include listening to Maroon 5’s Songs About Jane in the car with his dad and singing The Beatles’ “Yesterday” (“probably my favorite song ever,” he gushes). Growing up in a musical family and getting his start in musical theater, Thomas says he realized that music was his future when he was just 9 years old. (thomasdaymusic.com)
