Days Nights

Although Wikipedia states that Daley “received his mainstream breakthrough when he became the guest vocalist” on Gorillaz’s Doncamatic in 2010, chances are that his is a name most people on the street won’t recognise if you ask them. For anyone who wrote him off on the basis of that track, you’re missing out on one of the most promising British R&B/soul singers of the past couple years.

So what’s happened in the past three and a half years?

  • 4 EPs.
  • Guest features on singles by Wretch 32 and Nelly (yes, that Nelly. ‘Hot in Herre’ Nelly.)

  • Shortlisted for the BBC Sound of 2011.
  • Touring with Emeli Sandé, Maverick Sabre, Jessie J and Miguel.
  • And a year and a bit of work on his debut album
