Q: Tell the readers who you are and what you do
A: Greetings! I am the goth pop songstress -flute player Margot Day known for conjuring
music while fronting the legendary NYC 80’s band “The Plague”, and various projects,
most notably, Metamorph. Timeless music, gothic love songs of broken hearts, power,
and the insatiable desire for love. Music to transport my audience to realms unseen.
Q: Favorite road snack?
A: On my musical tour journeys, my favorite road snack is a concoction of crunchy
dragonfruit chips and juicy, spellbinding berries. This mix keeps me energized and
ready to cast musical spells wherever I go.
Q: If you were a salad what dressing would it have?
A: If I were a salad, it would be a salad of moonlit greens drizzled with an elixir of honey
and lavender with some walnuts for crunch. It would be a symphony of flavors that
dance upon the taste buds, leaving a trail of enchantment and excitement with every
Q: Tell a story about a song that had a big impact on you when you were growing up?
A: Once upon a time, when I was a baby, I sang and sang in some strange unknown
tongue. Melodies haunted me even then. Natures songs were my inspiration while I
searched for fairies in in the mossy hills behind my home in Vermont where I heard
ancient whispers of secrets from other realms while watching the dance of fireflies
under a bewitching moon. As a young musician, I played classical flute with my father
on the piano. I watched my dancer mother dance and put on productions. I developed
an early love for the theater being on the stage first when I was 2. Ignited with a passion
for music, and connected with nature and the mystical world, this led me to forge the
creation of my own songs.
Q: How did you develop your sound?
A: My sound developed like a magical potion, a concoction of diverse influences. I traveled
a lot with my family as a child, so I was exposed to the musical variety of other
countries. And being a native new yorker I had the opportunity to see Broadway shows,
dance, theater, jazz, and classical music from a very young age. I am a yoga teacher
and reiki master influenced by Hindu chants. I had a time in my life when I was crippled
and then had what I feel was a miracle healing - this influenced my music too – you can
view the “Metamorph healing documentary” on my YouTube channel. My mother and
grandma were deep into nature magic, witches, I am a legacy witch - this mysticism is
part of my music. So, with a blend of ethereal flute, haunting melodic vocals, pounding
danceable rhythms, and power goth pop arrangements, I created Metamorph - music
that resonates with the hearts of my listeners. It is always my intent to inspire, heal, and
save the world with a song…
Q: Who is your dream collab?
A: I am living my dream collab with the Metamorph producer and Cleopatra Records
recording artist Erik Gustafson. Erik is the Metamorph Alchemist. Erik brings talent and
expertise to the recent Metamorph album “Kiss of the Witch” and our new singles
“Witchlit” and the “Spellbound Empress” EP. The new single and lyric video “Woo Woo”
drops in August, and we have a new Metamorph album is in the cauldron.
Q: If you couldn’t do what you do, what would you do?
A: If I couldn't pursue my mystical musical path, I think I would just wither and die….
Q: What is your motivation?
A: My motivation comes from my sadness of the state of the world. My motivation comes
from the whispers of the wind, the rustle of leaves, the pounding of the waves, other
dimensions, and the unseen forces of the universe. The desire to share my music, to
perform and to create moments of magical connection with my audience, this propels
me forward on my musical journey.
Q: Have you had any weird fan interactions?
A: While touring and performing fans have been welcoming and kind and encouraging. I
feel the love. Which is beautiful. Nothing weird has happened – I suppose that’s kinda
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: I share my life with my witch’s familiar “Melody” the Metamorph mascot. Sometimes
nicknamed Mini Morph – she comes on tour. Melody is a silky teacup yorkie-poo, teeny
tiny only 3 pounds. Melody loves to snuggle and always has my back.
