Desmond Day lives and breathes music. Writing and recording by day, and performing lounges and small concert venues by night, hard work is why Des’ voice is destined for the stage. With the highly anticipated release of his first full-length record, tracked with producer/writer Jeff Dawson (Daniel Powter, Kelly Rowland, State Of Shock, and Marcy Playground), the future is looking bright for this Vancouver artist. Happy to be living out his dream Desmond never loses sight of his grass roots upbringing in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island.

Her music has been featured on CBC, X92.9, and CJSW. S.K. can be seen performing solo, or with a four or five piece band. The performances are equal parts refreshing, energizing, and grounding.
