Next up in R&B Adrian Daniel

Crooners don’t get as much shine as they should…some of the most legendary songs came from crooner aka real singers. Upstart singer Adrian Daniel has the voice and music to create lasting benchmark memories.

Whether he was singing or dancing, Brooklyn born creative Adrian Daniel can hardly recall a time when he wasn’t on stage. Early on, Adrian invested six years of his life to being a professional dancer and his focused determination landed him on some of the most infamous stages in the business. He brought his passion to the Apollo Theater, New Jersey Performing Arts Center, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music where he performed annually for half a decade.

Eventually, Adrian’s heart pushed him to focus his creative energy on pursuing a career as a singer/songwriter. After starting a band called L.D.C. and watching musicians come and go, Adrian became further determined to embark on a solo career. The artist prides himself on commitment, a true drive, and having an insatiable hunger to succeed in the business. Those qualities combined with his natural talent and a fierce desire to pave his own path are what sets him apart from the pack.

Adrian partnered with a prodigiously talented group of young producers while in college to craft his first EP as a solo artist. ‘Memoirs of a Stoner’ – an eclectic blend of soul, alternative and hip-hop songs that speak from his personal experiences – personifies Adrian’s rejection of all things ordinary. At only 24, Adrian’s raw talent, songwriting ability, showmanship, and unique voice have earned him a stellar reputation. One of his live performances moved a music critic to note his charisma and the “thought provoking” nature of his music while pinning him as “the next riveting R&B/Pop sensation”.

Adrian’s music influences include an eclectic group of artist such as Kanye West, 30 Seconds to Mars, Kid Cudi, Jay Z, Sade, Queen, Bob Dylan, Journey, Lauren Hill, 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 “Wildfire,” Adrian Daniel is set to do just that.
