Once Upon A Time Zella Day’s Soundcloud biography insists on her American roots: raised in a small mountain town in the depths of Arizona, she grew up singing Bob Dylan and Elvis Presley covers in her family’s coffee shop. Strongly felt in the “Seven Nation Army” cover that first brought her to our attention, these influences are still there on “1965″ and yet make way for a pop twist as Zella Day’s captivating vocals expand to tell a beautiful, nostalgic tale.
