(New York, NY | April 1st) – True innovators thrive in today’s urban music, and Brooklyn native Adrian Daniel continues to fortify the resurgence of R&B and Hip-Hop. The alternative soul singer entrances listeners with his old-school flair, lyrical storytelling and signature genre-blending style. Propelled by a constant stream of ear-catching singles, Adrian has built impressive momentum that has garnered him support from Spotify, TIDAL Discovery, Complex, VIBE, The Fader, Okayplayer and more. His unyielding efforts and boundless creativity will culminate in the release of his debut full-length album, Disillusions, which is available today. Yesterday, Adrian partnered with Billboard to offer fans an exclusive first listen of the heartfelt project, which was a therapeutic endeavor for the young artist, sharing:
“Music is everything we hope life would be… At least that’s what I believe. That’s what I’ve tried to do with this album: with the storytelling, sonics and everything. I just think that’s the purpose of art, to push. I wrote this album to move past all the anger I had with myself and people… to keep from going insane at points in my life. Making this album was a labor of love for me. I never had to do anything this difficult in my life… but it was gratifying though. I learned so much in the process.” – Adrian Daniel

About Adrian Daniel
Brooklyn born creative Adrian Daniel can hardly recall a time when he wasn’t on stage. After starting a band called L.D.C. and watching musicians come and go, Adrian became 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. 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 “Pride” and “Wildfire,” Adrian Daniel is set to do just that.
