Growing up in Brownsville Brooklyn, singer, songwriter, producer Adrian Daniel had to find inspiration from wherever he could. The harshness of his environment mixed with his love for art and music culminated into his Dark lush sound.
Since his critically acclaimed debut albums ‘Disillusions’ and Flawd were released, with Disillusions landing on RedBull Soul Select Top 100 Albums of 2016, Adrian Daniel continues to emerge, garnering support from the likes of Billboard, TIDAL Rising, Vibe, DJ Booth, The Fader, EarMilk, The Source, Highsnobiety, and Clash.
When Audiomack shared ‘It’s safe to say Brooklyn has found its R&B sound”, they may have been on to something. BET recently named Adrian Daniel as adding to the pantheon of new Neo-soul R&B artists setting the pace for the new decade.
He was noted as an artist who stood out from the crowd at SXSW 2018 Music Festival by DJ Booth, and Australia Review. NPR Austin 100 Ones to Watch describes his music as akin to the R&B greats but “a more modern version, ‘arousing, revealing’, propelled by a commanding falsetto that’s practically engineered to make knees quiver.” Noted by music journalists as “one of the reasons R&B is exciting again, pushing the genre into new territory.”
He has toured in the U.S and Europe, performed with Louis the Child and most recently with Grammy-nominated artist Jidenna. A review by Bandintown and PopDust shared, “The humble Pop R&B musician delivers an awesome performance.”
