Zella has recently graced the stage of several television programs including Late Night with Seth Meyers, Last Call with Carson Daly live from a recent LA show at The Fonda Theatre, and her television debut on CONAN last year.
The Arizona native released her debut album KICKER last year via Pinetop Records / Hollywood Records. A bold statement for the budding singer-songwriter exploring the depths of toxic relationships and modes for resilience, The New York Times lauds KICKER’s depth finding “…a hint of genuine darkness behind each treacherous romance.”
2015 saw Zella embark on an expansive U.S. and European tour that included highlight plays at Billboard Hot 100 Fest, iHeartRadio Music Fest and Lollapalooza, of which the Chicago Tribune proclaimed, “Hooks galore, and choruses that swing for the fences.”
Since her self-titled debut EP fall 2014 via tastemaker label B3SCI Records, Zella Day has seen support from the likes of The FADER, The Guardian, SPIN, Pigeons and Planes, Noisey (VICE), Interview Magazine, and Paste Magazine.
Zella continues to trailblaze a distinct edge in the fashion world via partnerships with clothing brands Coach, Maje, and Free People, appearances at several NYFW 2016 shows (including a performance at Rebecca Minkoff), as well as editorial features with Vogue, ELLE,Vanity Fair, W Magazine,Harper's Bazaar,Refinery29,FLAUNT,PAPER Mag, V Magazine,NYLON, LADYGUNN, The LATERALS,WhoWhatWear, and Playboy (fully-clothed 'Artist to Watch').
Zella Day first made a splash in 2012 with a cover of The White Stripe’s “Seven Nation Army,” which topped the Hype Machine. Raised in Pinetop, Arizona, a small mountain town of 7,000, Zella embraced creativity early on inspired by a vast backdrop of natural beauty. Surrounding herself with other musicians, Zella’s family-owned Mor Mor Coffee House became a sanctuary for budding artists. Pulling dually from songwriting legends and her old-West, Clint Eastwood-clad surroundings, Zella began writing songs with a distinct raw grit that continues to define her sound today.
Now based in Los Angeles, Zella continues her strong upward momentum with a debut album out now and a riveting live show that will captivate many more audiences in 2016.
