Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1996, Canadian rapper/singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar launched into a musical life around 2015, slowly releasing tracks online and ranging in styles from acoustic pop fare to soul songs bathed in ambient electronics.
Early singles included collaborations with renowned live hip-hop/rock hybridists BADBADNOTGOOD
. Following several self-released online EPs, a 2016 single entitled "Get You" featuring vocalist Kali Uchis
broke through to massive popularity, garnering millions of plays and video views within a relatively short span of time. Following the enormous exposure of "Get You," Caesar began performing live more frequently, in order to quell the newfound demand for his music. Work on new tracks continued between his concert and festival appearances. ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
