Manchester born singer-songwriter Daley has been making music in his bedroom since his teens, and now seems destined to fulfil the potential that has been brewing over the past two years.
Daley first came to prominence when he uploaded track Rainy Day to the BBC Introducing website. Soon it made its way to the ears of 1Xtra's Ras Kwame, who gave it regular airplay on his 100% Homegrown show. It wasn't long before MistaJam took note and the singer was on his way to Maida Vale studio to appear as part of BBC Inroducing's 1Xtra night at 2009's Electric Proms. Daley soon re-located to the capital permanently, developing an expanding fan base with a series of live appearances.
NME complimented the singer on his ""smooth neo-soul"" style and the music blogs soon began to rave about his guest vocal on the Gorillaz track Doncamatic, which the Manchester singer co-wrote with Damon Albarn. Albarn told Zane Lowe that Daley had ""one of those voices that don't come around very often"" as the track got its first play on Radio 1. Now signed to A&M records the music industry is waiting with bated breath to see what Daley and producer Bernard Butler conjure up with his debut album, released later in 2011.
