I first saw a clip of Daley's "Remember Me" featuring Jessie J on Sunday Brunch. Just the short clip they showed before the break was enough to pique my interest, so I looked him up on Amazon and then iTunes. What I found was that there was actually very little released by him, apart from this EP. However, on the strength of hearing one short clip, I decided to part with my money. Now, after having it for a few weeks, I am hoping that there will be an album out very soon. "Remember Me" and "Blame the World" are perhaps the strongest songs here, but the quality is very strong. Daley has quite an unusual voice - his range is quite high, but this makes it very distinctive. The collaboration with Jessie J works perfectly; their voices compliment each other very well.
Although it is sometimes difficult to try and pigeon-hole music, his sound is perhaps best described as a mix of soul and R&B. Certainly, if you appreciate talented songwriters and original music, you are sure to like this.
Watch out for him - he deserves to be very successful.

I love this EP, Daley is a true and genuine artist. The song with Marsha Ambrose is simply beautiful whereas the song "Those who wait" continues to awe and inspire me. It's refreshing to hear an artist who can create music that does not only focus on sex, drinking as much as you can and living only for today.
