Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1995, Canadian rapper/singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar launched his musical career around 2015, slowly releasing tracks online, 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, became massively popular, 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, and 2017 brought more well-received material: the single "We Find Love" and his debut album Freudian. Grammy nominations followed in the categories of Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance (for "Get You"). ~ Fred Thomas, Rovi
