Daley is a singer, songwriter and recording artist hailing from Manchester, UK.
A British boy who grew up to the sounds of Prince, Chaka Khan, D’Angelo, Radiohead and Oasis – Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on the Gorillaz hit ‘Doncamatic’ under the wing of the band’s creator Damon Albarn in London. He has since become one of the UK’s most respected soulful exports, recording and touring on both sides of the Atlantic and working with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Miguel, Jessie J, Emeli Sande, Maxwell, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius.
With a new single arriving Spring 2017, and adding the last touches to his second album project Daley is drawing on experiences both professional and personal of the last two years, honoring the loss of close friend and manager Richard Antwi, and is poised to open the door on the next chapter of his musical journey with renewed perspective… and eagerly awaited new music!
The 13-track album has been led by the Top 10 Adult R&B hit single “Until The Pain is Gone” featuring Jill Scott. Fans that pre-order the set will receive the aforementioned song, plus the funky “Sympathy” featuring Swindle.
This is the kind of music that is great for any time of day. I especially enjoy it when I am working. The melodies, the voice, and the beats, remind me of the feeling I used to get from listening to classic R and B. Music is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it. Feelings aroused by the touch of someone’s hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith – all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well. As for Daley, some of the songs he creates, have an ephemeral quality that helps me collect my bad mood when I’m ready to push my computer off the desk, LOL.
