Biography

With a captivating and intimate approach to songwriting, Canadian R&B singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar broke through in 2017 with several collaborative singles from his debut album Freudian. Duets with peers like H.E.R. and Kali Uchis were streamed in hundreds of million times, and even brought Caesar Juno awards, multiple Grammy nominations in 2018, and a win at the next year's Grammys for Best R&B Performance. Born Ashton Simmonds in Toronto in 1995, Canadian rapper/singer/songwriter Daniel Caesar launched his musical career around 2015, slowly releasing tracks online, ranging in style 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. The album featured several special guests, including Charlotte Day Wilson, Syd, and H.E.R. Grammy nominations followed in the categories of Best R&B Album and Best R&B Performance (for "Get You"). The single "Who Hurt You?" arrived in late 2018. At the 2019 Grammys, Caesar took home the title of Best R&B Performance for "Best Part," his duet with H.E.R. that appeared on Freudian. ~ Fred Thomas
