EDITORS’ NOTES

In the opening moments of Cheers to the Fall, Andra Day sings, “There’s nothin’ I can sing now, that ain’t been sung before.” It might seem like a confession, but as Day blasts through her debut album with grit and style to spare, she proves to be a soul revivalist with refreshing verve—and a kindred spirit to powerhouse singers like Etta James and Amy Winehouse. Most of the music is brassy retro-soul with a sweltering Stax inflection (“Forever Mine,” “Gold,” “Gin & Juice”), but when Day opens up with a big-hearted ballad like “Rise Up,” she’s just as stunning.

A Day to Admire

Andra mixes old doo-wop, soul and jazz to embody the magic that leaves her lips. She sends shivers through her lyrics with the comfort of a riff, while bringing us to our knees for more. Definitely a second coming of yesteryear music. Truly magnetic.

True Artistry

This album has been three years in the making and it is well worth the wait. This is a biography of truth and faithfulness told thru music. Andra Day is an artist molded from an industry that no longer exists. Each song is heart felt because they represent true experiences of hers that only she could tell. This album will be a source of heeling to many. Enjoy.
