With each song, Daniel Caesar reaches out and makes a connection. His debut album, Freudian was released on August 25, to an immense about of rave reviews. It is a compilation of melodies tied together to amplify the R&B singer’s distinct, soothing voice and writing skills. Upon debut, Freudian reached #1 on the ITunes charts and it’s lead single, “Get You” (Feat. Kali Uchis) recently hit Gold in both the U.S and Canada.
Caesar’s musical style is a deep connection in the classic sense of R&B/Soul and its transcendent power to affect the very core of our existence. His voice, songwriting, and presence immediately elicit feeling, especially on the pair of 2017 singles “Blessed” and “We Find Love”-which The Fader praised as “Gorgeous.” Musicians from Chis Martin of Coldplay to Erykah Badu have celebrated Caesar’s work and Apple Music chose him to be September’s Up Next Artist.
That level of connectivity is becoming a tradition for the artist. With jarring gospel undertones, heart-tugging guitar chords, and soothing harmonious vocals, his 2014 debut effort, Praise Break, earned critical acclaim and would be ranked in the 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014 by Rolling Stone. Caesar’s follow-up project, Pilgrim’s Paradise, was met with even greater praise, subsequently capturing the attention of both the Canadian and international music markets.
Conveying moody anecdotes about life’s most pertinent lessons – love, loss, faith, desire and determination, Caesar tells a coming-of-age tale that is not only relatable, but genuine. With raw talent and an unwavering mystic, layer by layer, Daniel Caesar is writing a melodic story rooted in his authentic self – a story that has only just begun.
“If Daniel Caesar is honest with himself, his natural skill set lies in his artistic ability more so than his business savvy. Still, the 21-year-old singer-songwriter claims to have aspirations to be like Jay Z.
Born in Toronto, Canada, Caesar is slowly adapting to life outside of his hometown. He’s played a handful of shows in the U.S., particularly in Los Angeles where he sold out the 700-capacity Echoplex at an average ticket price of $14.
His breakout single “Get You” amassed over 10 million streams on Apple Music since its October 2016 release; he’s nestled in with The Weeknd, Childish Gambino and Chris Brown on the platform’s charts. According to his management, the singer’s catalog has garnered over 20 million global streams on Apple Music and 12 million streams on Spotify, with a listenership of over 740,000 per month.
Clearly, he’s struck a nerve with his audience artistically. He may have to trade in his lyric sheet for a spreadsheet soon.”
