Tiffany Day went viral in 2017 after a video of her singing “Hallelujah” into a well in Italy while on a school field. The video garnered several million views and inspired Day(born Tiffany Ruan) to post covers on YouTube and eventually multiple EPs and singles as a college student at Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles, CA. Inspired by a wide variety of artists like Louis The Child, Whethan and Medasin, Day is also informed by the likes of Lorde, Daniel Caesar and Jessie Reyez amongst others. Born in Toronto and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Day has continued to grow in popularity and recently wrapped up her first U.S. headlining tour across both coasts in support of her latest EP ‘The Gratitude Project’.
Tiffany Day spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about her struggles growing up as one of the few Asian Americans in Kansas, finding confidence as a songwriter and artist in the music community, her connection to San Francisco and more.
