Album:Days + Nights
British soul singer Gareth Daley is frequently compared to Mick Hucknall of Simply Red as they are both from Manchester. This slow jam Alone Together made a bit of a splash on the R & B charts despite never being released as a single. Daley was born Sept. 29, 1989 in Manchester, England. He was the featured vocalist on Gorillaz 2010 top 40 hit Doncamatic. Daley wrote the song with Gorillaz leader Damon Albarn. He also appeared on the debut CD by rapper Wretch 32. Then he released an EP Those Who Wait through his website. He signed with Universal Republic in the US and Polydor in England. The EP was rereleased as Alone Together and it reached #5 on the R & B chart despite never being released as a single. The song features former Floetry member Marsha Ambrosius who is a budding solo artist too. The record was produced and co-written by Canei Finch who produced some of Marsha's album. Daley's first full length CD Days + Nights was released Feb. 2014. Pharrell Williams and Andre Harris are among the producers on the album. Daley toured England with Miguel and has also done some gigs in the US. It says on his website he plans a British tour this year. My guess is he will start working on his next album shortly. Here's the video for Alone Together by Daley featuring Marsha Ambrosius.
