Music with an Upbeat Feel: American Authors, Making Waves with Hit Single “Best Day of my Life”

Upbeat music seems to have taken over the airwave and digital devices these days with Pharrell’s (Pharrel Williams)
HAPPY song and video. Love this video- the background people especially the little girl make this a must watch video along with the magical hook of this tune. Love it.

Another song out there that has been running through my brain is American Author’s Best Day of My Life!


The SESAC-affiliated American Authors are taking the music world by storm on the strength of their single, “Best Day Of My Life.” The Brooklyn based group have seen their first single hit the #1 spot on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, as well as a feature in an advertisement for Toyota and Lowe’s, and in trailers for big budget movies Delivery Man and Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

The group recently performed on the highly rated “Ellen” show on Friday, Feb. 7 with a great response. The group is also a set to appear on “Conan” on March 4 and “Live with Kelly & Michael” on March 10.

Check out their EP now. Their CD will launch in early March and is on pre-sale now!

The band, who were recently named one of VH-1’s “You Oughta Know” artists, will be releasing their album Oh, What A Life on Island Records on March 4 and kicking off a spring tour with OneRepublic and The Script. For more information on American Authors, check out their website at
