It's impossible to feel lonely when you've got good music pumping through your speakers.
Daley's six-song debut EP for Republic Records, Alone Together, is good music. Sometimes, it's sexy. Other times, it's stirring. However, it's always soulful.
Over a short period of time, the 23-year-old R&B impresario has made a name for himself in his native United Kingdom and beyond. His voice fuelled "Doncamatic", the chart-topping single from Gorillaz and "Long Way Home", a standout from Wretch 32. His celebrated independent mixtape, Those Who Wait, has been downloaded over 50,000 times and landed him live gigs stateside for the first time, drawing the attention of the American audience. Now, Alone Together serves as a proper introduction to his distinct style and savvy.
"If you’re expecting a straight-up soul singer, that's not necessarily who I am” he declares. “I'm exploring different sounds with the music. However, I am tying it all together with the songs and how I sing them. It’s important for me to write about aspects of life that people can relate to. Any time a drastic change occurs in my life, it ends up as a song."
Those moments live on tangibly within the music. The first single, "Alone Together", sees the singer team up with modern soul favorite Marsha Ambrosious. It's a careful distillation of divine delivery and seductive grooves. Elsewhere on the EP, 21st century diva Jessie J joins Daley for "Remember Me", a bluesy and brilliant anthem in its own right.
