Broken Flight is a neo soul band led by guitarist, vocalist and composer Alaska Day. Alaska Day is compositionally influenced by the complex and beautiful harmonies of Antonio Carlos Jobim and Esperanza Spalding. She draws from a variety of generes such as pop, bossa nova and nu jazz. Her songs are known for their eclectic harmonies, grooves and catchy melodies. She fell in love with Joao Gilberto's and Lionel Loueke's solo guitar/vocal works and Gretchen Parlato's soft, intimate vocals. She has strived to create a sound that is both reflective of her influences and unique in its own way.
