Nik Day grew up on a small farm in Idaho Falls, ID. He was constantly surrounded by music – Billy Joel, Enya, Yanni, Church hymns, and Broadway musicals were the soundtrack to his childhood. He began writing his own piano songs at the early age of seven, and eventually created a piano book of his own compositions. As he began writing pop songs and performing at local venues, he decided that he wanted to be a recording artist and travel the world. After serving an LDS mission for two years in Mexico City and transferring to BYU from BYU-Idaho, he started an internship with the LDS Church, writing religious songs with a team of four college students for the first Mutual Album. He was still performing at venues in Provo and Salt Lake City, trying to build his career, but after a lot of soul searching and self-discovery, he decided to stop performing all together and focus on music production and songwriting. Through the next few years he continued doing free-lance work for the LDS Church, scoring short films and writing music for the annual Mutual albums. To further pursue his songwriting career, he decided to move to Nashville, Tennessee, but while he was visiting some friends there he distinctly felt that he should move to Salt Lake City and start working for the LDS Church full time. He followed that prompting, and eventually got a job offer. He currently works as the International Music Manager in the Priesthood and Family Department, and travels to different countries to mentor young LDS talent in songwriting, recording, and performing. He also manages the Annual Mutual album, a collection of Christian music written by LDS youth for international youth camps. Aside from his job, he helps write and produce the Especially For Youth albums, films music videos, and works on various media projects. In 2015 he decided to pick up where he left off with his solo career, but this time he decided to write contemporary Christian songs. He released his first Christian album, “Miracle,” in April of 2016. “Miracle” is full of anthemic, Indie-rock songs about having a personal relationship with Christ. He is currently writing for his second album, which will be released in 2017. Going forward, he hopes to continue creating media that uplifts others and inspires people to come closer to Christ.
