Biography

Alex Day is unsigned musician, YouTuber, and writer.

YouTube and Hiatus
Prior to March 2014, Alex Day was the biggest UK solo artist on YouTube with an audience of over a million people. However, in March 2014, accusations of Day’s participation in “manipulative relationships,” likely with minors, arose. This accusations were not refuted by Day, leading to widespread outcry by his audience and much of the YouTube community. Day’s merchandise was removed from DFTBA. com, his upcoming publication of his first book (The Underground Storyteller) was dropped by Ebury, and no posts were made on his social media sites of YouTube, Facebook, Tumblr, or Twitter from March 2014 until October 2014.

As of October 2014, Day has uploaded videos to his channel telling his side of the scandal and is independently publishing his book through his website. He is still on musical hiatus.

Musical Success
Day’s first two albums, Parrot Stories (2009) and The World Is Mine (I Don’t Know Anything) (2010) received marginal success, although mostly contained in Day’s YouTube audience.

His 2011 winter single “Forever Yours” sold a hundred thousand copies worldwide in one week without any record label support or major radio airplay, landing on the UK Official Chart at #4 on Christmas Day. “Forever Yours” sales beat out singles by artists such as Coldplay, Rihanna, and Katy Perry.

    they are true though, he admitted it. he just manipulates everyone into thinking what he did was a 'misunderstanding' because he's a manipulator, but there's no such thing as a misunderstanding when it comes to rape. you can still enjoy his music, what he did doesn't mean his music is suddenly shit, just don't deny he's a piece of trash.

    the allegations against him are not true, he never 'raped' anyone, nor did he 'manipulate' anybody. He had some misunderstandings with girls in the past and they decided to winge about it on tumblr and blow it way out of proportion. Alex is a hugely talented musician and I will continue to love his music, end of story. Perhaps before casting your judgement you should hear his side of the story, which is on his youtube channel for you to view.

    If he makes another album/EP like 117% Complete, I will be happy for days. But artists always have to evolve, like Pokémon. Keep progressing, Alex.
