You may remember the rich, sultry voice of Arizona native Zella Day from last year’s single “Sweet Ophelia” or her folky take on The White Stripes‘ “Seven Nation Army.” Now Zella’s full length debut album Kicker has arrived, featuring the songs you’ve heard from her EP and a lot of new material, running the gamut from from singer-songwriter fare to spaghetti western sounds to dance jams.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Zella to chat about the record and hear her perform (almost) acoustic versions of some of its tunes, including “East of Eden” and “Jameson,” for our latests Submodern Session. Listen to this exclusive session HERE and feel free to post it on your station’s website. Please contact me if you’re interested in airing this session on your show.
Of course I recommend delving deeper into Kicker as well, with songs like “Jerome,” “Hypnotic,” and current single “High” that would all sound great on the radio. Find out more about Zella Day and see videos at ZellaDay.com. Catch her live on tour this summer including stops at the Firefly Festival this weekend and Lollapalooza next month.
