The 2008 release of "Grains of Sand" marks the third decade that eclectic pop-rock musician Peter Day has produced and released his own solo albums. First starting with simplistic multi-track recordings made by bouncing tracks between two portable cassette recorders, "Grains of Sand" was created on GarageBand and complimented with acoustic and electric guitars and fretted and fretless basses.

Made over a four-year period, no two songs on "Grains of Sand" are alike. Featuring the romantic acoustic pop of "Sunset to Sunset," the album explores the twisted complexities of acid jazz ("The Lithium Limbo") and symphonic explorations of instrumental music ("Turkish Tryst" and "The Last Grain of Sand"). Day even taps into contemporary dance beats with "QuinceaƱera Crush." But the surprise of the album is "Ghosts," a haunting bossa nova whose words were written by teenager Joe Herrera. The collaboration came when Herrera''s middle school English teacher shared the boy''s award-winning poem with musician Day.

Joining the project are longtime music buddy Ben Brooks on flute and jazz player Kevin Mahan on flugelhorn. Day performs and sings on all other tracks.

Over the years, Day has played guitar and piano in diverse musical situations. In the 1970s, he played keyboard in an R&B band called Torage that featured actor Michael Dorn on bass. He also played guitar in the dance band ensemble, Jesse James Church III and the Reverend Angels, which was the starting place for Mercy Powell of Mercy and the Merkettes. Later, he performed in several church bands, including the Kids Church band at Christian Assembly Church in Los Angeles, whose main worship band features the extraordinary gifts of Tommy Walker. Day is a member of the Glen Gang band in Pasadena with Brooks, Oskar Kirby (co-writer along with Brooks on "Gazing Right Through Me") and Rick Mapel. He also had two songs on the Dr. Demento syndicated radio show.
