Alternative soul singer/songwriter, Adrian Daniel, has been making his impressive mark in the R&B/Pop revitalization happening over the last few years and the music industry as a whole. The Brooklyn native has not only brought his own genre-blending mixture to the table but also revived some old-school flair with his lyrical storytelling. His ear-catching, evocative songs earned him a rapidly blossoming fan-base and garnered him support from Billboard, Spotify, TIDAL Rising, Fader, Complex, Source, VIBE, and more. His unyielding efforts and boundless creativity culminated in the release of his debut full-length album, Disillusions, which dropped April 1, 2016 to critical acclaim.
“At each peak in his falsetto, he makes unrequited dedication sound enchanting.” – FADER
“Reminiscent of Frank Ocean meets The Weeknd meets Childish Gambino” – VIBE
Adrian’s music influences include an eclectic group of artist such as Kanye West, Michael Jackson, Prince, Kid Cudi, Jay Z, Sade, Queen, Bob Dylan, Journey, Stevie Wonder, Coldplay, and Jimmy Hendrix. While Adrian’s art reflects these influences, it also simultaneously defies all genre or label to create something unparalleled.
This is an artist that wants to make a significant impact on the world, and with songs like “Pride” and “Devoted,” Adrian Daniel is set to do just that.
