Born as David Debrandon Brown in September 25, 1985 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is signed to Keep Cool Records and RCA Records. He released his first EP, I on November 9, 2018, and his second EP, II, on February 6, 2019. The EP’s were part of a series leading up to his debut studio album Painted, which was released on May 24, 2019.
He was raised in a cult that forbade secular music, but he discovered an innate knack for singing and taught himself melodies by turning children books into songs of his own. After his mother left the cult, Brown found himself going back to immerse himself in classic R&B and eventually fell hard for the likes of Prince, Rick James, Lauryn Hill, and Stevie Wonder. He soon relocated to Atlanta, Georgia to pursue music.
He previously competed on American Idol (Season 4 in 2005), at age 19. He auditioned with “A Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke, and was given four “yes” votes. He was eliminated shortly after reaching the Top 20.
Daye established himself as a songwriter and background vocalist and landed credits in 2008 on songs by Keith Sweat on his album Just Me and Ne-Yo on “She Got Her Own“. During this time, he briefly went under the alias of “D. Brown.” In 2014, he wrote for Boyz II Men on the song “Believe Us”. During 2016 and 2017, he co-wrote songs released by Keke Palmer (“Enemiez”), Ella Mai (“10,000 Hours,” “Down”), Trey Songz (“Song Goes Off”), and two tracks from the album Strength of a Woman by Mary J. Blige, among other contemporary R&B artists.
