White soul singer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

He had previously recorded for the [l=Parkway] and [l=Jomada] labels (where he enjoyed minor success with the single "Marry Me"), before being brought to [l=Stax] records by none other than [a=Otis Redding]. Says [l=Stax] producer - songwriter [a=Steve Cropper] of Daye: [i]"The kid was dynamite. Otis really wanted to do a lot with him. Had Otis lived he probably would have."[/i] He released two singles for [l=Stax], "What'll I Do For Satisfaction" (remade several years later by [a=Janet Jackson] as "What'll I Do") and "Stay Baby Stay" (which is widely regarded as a classic among soul enthusiasts).
