Hailing from Manchester, UK, singer, songwriter, and recording artist Daly first came to prominence with his co-write and feature on the Gorillaz hit "Doncamatic," under the wing of the band's creator Damon Albarn. He has since become one of the UK's most respected musical exports, recording and touring both sides of the Atlantic, and working with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Miguel, Jessie J, Emeli Sande, Maxwell, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius.
His first solo work, the EP entitled Those Who Wait, was released independently, introducing the world to Daley's unmistakable voice and own brand of Alternative R&B / Soul / Experimental Pop. The EP gave rise to an unexpected surge of popularity in the U.S. with the Marsha Ambrosius-assisted duet "Alone Together" - which became a runaway Top 5 hit at R&B radio. Largely hailed a 'new classic’ the song garnered Daley kudos from The Grammys, BET, Soul Train and MOBO awards and his loyal State-side fanbase.
The following year saw Top 20 singles in the UK charts - "Remember Me" featuring Jessie J and "Broken." His debut album Days & Nights was released to critical acclaim shortly thereafter via Universal Republic Records, and boasted contributions from Pharrell Williams, Illangelo (The Weeknd), Bernard Butler (Suede) and Andre Harris (Usher, Jill Scott). The album gave rise to another Top 10 R&B radio single "Look Up" and was followed by several sold-out headline tours around the U.S. and Europe.
