Daley Biography (Wikipedia)
Gareth Daley (born 29 September 1989), known mononymously as Daley, is a British singer-songwriter. Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on the Gorillaz single "Doncamatic", having been spotted by the band's co-creator/lead singer Damon Albarn early in his career as an underground artist on the UK music scene. Shortly afterwards, his first solo album Those Who Wait was independently released and achieved 150,000 downloads over its first few months. Its success saw him promptly signed to Universal Music.
The next two years saw him release top 5 radio single “Alone Together” with Marsha Ambrosius (of Floetry), "Remember Me" featuring singer Jessie J and 2013's "Broken". Daley's debut album Days & Nights was released in February 2014 to critical acclaim and generated the Pharrell Williams-produced top ten hit "Look Up" on the Billboard's Adult R&B Songs.
After a two year hiatus Daley returned with his sophomore album 2017's The Spectrum, with lead single "Until The Pain Is Gone' (featuring three time Grammy winner Jill Scott) catapulting the singer back to the top of the US R&B charts. The 13 song set saw Daley expand on his soulful beginnings while experimenting with new sounds and sonics, auto-biographical emotional lyrical content, incorporating elements of R&B, P-funk, alternative, UK garage and orchestral arrangement. The album was accompanied by sold out headline tour runs in the US and Europe.
