Daley Finding Success With 'Throwback Soul'

(Radio.com) Some artists are discovered in back room deals by industry insiders who package them and turn them into a commodity that the iTunes buying public can stomach. And some artists, like Manchester's blue-eyed soulful son Daley, spring (nearly) fully formed from their own imagination with accolades from their peers.

Daley is part of the burgeoning soul and R&B movement out of the UK. He came on the heels of Adele and Amy Winehouse, whose "Love Is A Losing Game" he covered and released on the date of her untimely passing, but he's very much his own man. Daley's music at times harkens back to the '90s, and at others takes listeners back to the Sade vibe of the '80s. Sometimes he can even go further back to the '60s, but his music never seems to rely very much on the idea of being grounded in modern day production and style.

"I think the term that I've come up with that I really feel like works is future throwback soul, if I was going to have to put it in a little phrase, because it is literally what it says," Daley said in an interview with Radio.com.

"The music I make definitely always has soul at the core. When I write, I write from a very honest place and hopefully a very relatable place. In terms of where it is musically, it's definitely inspired by music from the past and the things I've been influenced by and inspired by. I really want my music to feel of its time and even a little futuristic. Although there are many artists who pull it off very well, I don't want to be an artist who is retro or old school." more on this story
