The world has come to understand R&B/Soul music as a multi-faceted genre that transcends soundwaves into the inner core of our existence — a genre that makes listeners feel, rather than just hear. For 21-year-old Toronto native Daniel Caesar, the R&B/Soul genre serves as a skeleton to which he builds up with jarring gospel undertones, heart-tugging guitar chords, and soothing harmonious vocals.
His debut effort, Praise Break, successfully captured the attention of many major publications and outlets, and was ranked in the 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014 by Rolling Stone Magazine. 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.
Sampha is set to have a big 2017 with the release of his new album Process due soon in February.
the British singer-songwriter is sharing a new single, “(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano,” which he’s dedicated to his Sierra Leonean mother, Binty Sisay.
“The more time that passes, the more I see the extent of her love for me,” Sampha wrote on Twitter.
It’s a delicate tune that sees Sampha singing, “no one knows me like the piano in my mother’s home.”
“(No One Knows Me) Like The Piano” follows the release of “Timmy’s Prayer” last year, as well as Sampha’s collaborations with Solange for A Seat at the Table.
