Get To Know: Lucky Daye

Lucky Daye makes music for everyone…it’s time to add him to your playlists...

It’s hard to believe that what was once forbidden to New Orleans-born singer Lucky Daye, is now his career. In fact, he is one of the most intriguing acts in modern R&B.

Growing up as part of a strict Christian church which enforced strict rules, Lucky’s earliest memories of music were in church. This experience taught the artist to make music from nothing, making the most of his voice as his only instrument.

To anyone who listens to Lucky’s honest, self-reflective music, it’s obvious that this is what he was meant to do in life… His tracks cover a range of emotions, which Lucky is able to do beautifully with his voice.

This week we sit down with Lucky to get to know all about his music, what he listens to and his favourite career moments…
