Daley
Pop
Singer-Songwriter

Daley is a singer, songwriter and recording artist hailing from Manchester, UK.

A British boy who grew up to the sounds of Prince, Chaka Khan, Sade, Radiohead and Oasis - Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on the Gorillaz hit ‘Doncamatic' under the wing of the band's creator Damon Albarn in London. He has since become one of the UK's most respected soulful exports, recording and touring on both sides of the Atlantic, working with the likes of Pharrell Williams, Miguel, Jessie J, Emeli Sande, Maxwell, Jill Scott and Marsha Ambrosius.

His first solo work the 'Those Who Wait' EP was independently released and introduced the world to Daley's brand of Alternative R&B / Soul experimental Pop - and an undeniable male voice. It gave rise to an unexpected surge of popularity in the US with Marsha Ambrosius assisted duet 'Alone Together' - which after a tentative release became a runaway Top 5 hit at R&B radio. Largely hailed a 'new classic' the project garnered Daley kudos from The Grammys, BET, Soul Train and MOBO awards and a loyal international fanbase.

His debut album 'Days & Nights' was released shortly after via Universal Republic Records to critical acclaim, boasting contributions from Pharrell Williams, Illangelo (The Weeknd) Bernard Butler (Suede) and Andre Harris (Usher, Jill Scott) and saw Top 20 singles in the UK charts - 'Remember Me' featuring Jessie J and 'Broken'. The album also gave rise to Top 10 R&B radio single 'Look Up' and was followed by sold-out headline tours around the US and Europe. Daley described his debut album as a ‘diary of sorts’, showcasing some of his most vulnerable creative and carefully-crafted songs to date.

With new single 'Until The Pain Is Gone' now Top 10 and climbing, Daley is poised to release his second album project 'The Spectrum' with which he draws on experiences professional and personal of the last two years, honouring the loss of close friend and manager Richard Antwi, and opening the door on the next chapter of his musical journey with renewed perspective... and eagerly awaited new music!

Hailing from a family of renowned musicians, Inglewood, CA native Tiffany Gouché has demanded her way to the forefront of the independent R&B/Soul scene for the past 3 years. With her 2014 Fantasy EP, and her 2015 Pillow Talk EP, the singer/songwriter/producer unapologetically brings authenticity to her music and has a refined sound that has garnered her many praises and accolades by music’s elite.

Known for her jazzy, futuristic-soul sound with a hip-hop influence, Tiffany has been a key innovator in the resurgence of traditional R&B. Named by Okayplayer as a Top Artists to Watch in 2017, the knob-twiddling multi-instrumentalist has been blazing the West Coast indie scene collaborating and touring with the UK’s charismatic, emcee/musician Little Simz and sharing stages with free-spirited genre-benders Anderson Paak, Solonge, KING, JMSN, and Soulection. Most recently opening for Ms. Lauryn Hill at the Los Angeles stop of her tour, Tiffany showed us that there is not a crowd that she cannot compel.

Impressing the hell out of music snobs from both sides of the U.S. coasts is an understatement. Currently, Tiffany is writing and producing an album with and for three-time Grammy Award winning Lalah Hathaway and is currently a featured artist on the Grammy Nominated album Velvet Portraits for her song“Never Enough”, with Jazz extraordinaire Terrace Martin.

Anyone that has ever witnessed Tiffany Gouché live will testify that her authenticity will excite ears, ignite inner passions and soothe the soul. With having toured on over 50 dates in 2016 alone; one may say that she simply lives on stage.
