Gareth Daley (born 29 September 1989), better known professionally as Daley (pronounced day-lee), is a British recording artist and songwriter. Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on the Gorillaz 2010 single “Doncamatic”, having been spotted by the band’s creator Damon Albarn early in his career as an underground artist on the London music scene.
The song exposed him to a wider international audience. In 2011, his mixtape Those Who Wait mixtape was independently released and achieved 150,000 downloads over its first twelve months. Its success saw him promptly signed to Universal Music.
The next two years saw him releasing two top 30 singles on the UK Singles Chart, including 2012’s “Remember Me” featuring singer Jessie J and 2013’s “Broken”. Daley’s debut album Days & Nights was released in February 2014 to critical acclaim and generated the Pharrell Williams produced top ten hit “Look Up” on the Billboard’s Adult R&B Songs. Next to opening for the likes of Miguel, Maxwell, Emeli Sande, Jill Scott and Maverick Sabre, Daley has headlined venues like KOKO, Highline Ballroom, El Rey Theatre, 930 Club, and the Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta.
