Thank you to everyone who came out to Fresh 102.7’s Up Close & Personal with Zella Day on Wednesday February 10th at the Adorama LIVE Theatre in NYC, courtesy of Disney Music Group.
Watch Christine Richie and Zella in the video above as they talk about music, small town life and Zella’s big Hollywood *gasp* moment when she found out that Kate Hudson was into her music — while in a room with Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry!
“I have never been a part of anything,” Zella joked about the event. “And the all of a sudden I was thrown into a room with all these ‘A-list’ celebrities, and I was like, ‘I don’t know if I like this’.”
“But it was cool, the Kate Hudson thing was great!”
Zella got her start performing in Arizona at the age of nine, blocking out sets at her family’s coffee shop – where she surprisingly wasn’t so good at making coffee, just sweet, sweet music. It was when she moved to the “land of hipsters”, Silver Lake (outside of Los Angeles), where she perfected her cuppa Joe using her Chemix and fancy filter. “I’m like, really annoying about it,” Zella laughed.
Moving on to relationship talk, something Christine likes to torture herself with on a daily basis, she asked Zella if she agrees with a recent study that says women are more likely to give their number to a man who is carrying a guitar case.
“I believe this, actually” says Zella.
But does it work for Zella as a guitarist?
“As a woman, no. I think it’s different. I think holding a guitar case is a little more intimidating than it is inviting,” says Zella. “I have friends in L.A. who are doing the same kinds of things that I am and playing the same kinds of shows and when they get off stage there’s like a whole group of hot chicks waiting there… I don’t get a group of hot guys waiting when I walk off stage — it’s very different.”
“It’s OK… I don’t think I want that… It’s fine!”
But Zella does get to make out with a pretty hot guy in her video for “Hypnotic.”
