BIOGRAPHY

 

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, Sade, Radiohead and George Michael - Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on Gorillaz hit ‘Doncamatic'. He has since become one of the UK's most respected soulful exports, recording and touring on both sides of the Atlantic, working with the likes of Pharrell WilliamsStevie Wonder, Miguel, Jessie JMaxwell, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius.

 

His first solo work - the Those Who Wait EP - introduced the world to Daley's brand of Alternative R&B/Soul/Pop - and an undeniable vocal talent. The project gave rise to an unexpected surge of popularity in the US with Marsha Ambrosius assisted duet 'Alone Together' - which after a tentative release became a runaway Top 5 hit at R&B radio. Largely hailed a 'new classic' the song earned Daley kudos from The Grammys, BET, Billboard, Soul Train and the MOBOs, and a loyal international fanbase. 

 

His debut album Days & Nights was released shortly after via Universal Republic Records to critical acclaim, with contributions from Pharrell Williams, Illangelo (The Weeknd), Bernard Butler (Suede) and Andre Harris (Usher) and saw Top 20 singles in the UK charts - 'Remember Me' featuring Jessie J and 'Broken'. The album also birthed Top 10 R&B radio single 'Look Up' and was followed by sold-out headline tours around the US and Europe.

 

After a brief hiatus Daley returned to radio with soaring  Top 5 single 'Until The Pain Is Gone' featuring Grammy alum Jill Scott, the lead song from current album The Spectrum. The autobiographical project honours Daley's soulful roots while continuing to push sonic and creative boundaries, drawing on life experience of the last two years, and honouring the loss of close friend and manager Richard Antwi.  Sold out headline tours of the US and Europe accompanied this album, along with a special run of 'Spectrum Unplugged' dates.

Daley is currently working on his third album offering, due for a 2020 release.
