I was stunned to discover that US radio station, JazzVnU.com has been giving lots of love and airplay to Day Dawns after I got in touch with them to introduce myself.
I Need You Here, in particular, has been playing on their airwaves and they’ve very kindly added details of the album to their “New & Upcoming Artists” page.
Day Dawns’ sexy track, You Make Me Feel Good made an appearance in the Pop Jazz Radio chart last month and has since been gathering a number of votes, placing it at no. 8 which means it’s also in rotation.
Nicely seated just behind Gregory Porter’s single, it’s in a good spot and if you fancy adding your vote too, well go ahead. You can head through to the Pop Jazz Radio voting page by clicking here and scrolling down to Melissa James.
Big thanks to Pop Jazz Radio for selecting the track.
…and it’s great that they do. Last week online magazine, FATEA published a glowing report on Day Dawns written by Neil King.

Both Tom Robinson and his Fresh on the Net site and team should be lauded for helping plug many a new artist and their music. Day Dawns track Long Road Travelled got selected as one of 10 top picks this week and Johnno Casson gave the track a lovely write up which you can see here.
Day Dawns retains its position at no. 10 in the EuroAmericana Chart this month which is fab news. Sitting alongside the likes of Kelly Joe Phelps, it’s in pretty good company.
The album’s been doing really well in the EuroAmericana chart with many of the Chart “reporters” doing their own bit in trying to plug the album. Latest in line to add his piece is Martin Overheul of the AltCountryForum site in Belgium. Every plug helps so I’m very grateful to Martin for this one.
…which is great news. Country File is a roots/country show which plays on Havenstad FM in the Netherlands and presenter, Roel Stäbler has selected Day Dawns as his CD of the week. Lovely stuff.
…and it’s another good one. Have a read here.
I have long been a fan and listener of Robert Elms’ show on BBC Radio London and have been keen for him to hear the music of Day Dawns.
It was therefore a real pleasure to hand him a copy of the album personally, which I did at the weekend, and a further thrill to hear the opening track, Don’t You Keep Yourself Down, playing on his show on Monday afternoon. I switched on the radio, and there it was. A very nice surprise indeed.
I was delighted to learn this week that Day Dawns has entered the EuroAmericana chart at no.10. Many of the chart representatives have been very supportive and enthusiastic about the album too which is great news. It all helps in taking the music of Day Dawns on its journey around Europe.
