Day was signed in 2011 to a development deal with Buskin Records founded by Jeffrey Evans, who Day asked to be her manager in 2013. Later Day & Buskin earned a record deal with Warner Bros.

You remind them that you are not here just to exist, you're here to impact people in their lives...I think it just reinforces that." (Source: en.wikipedia.org)
