R&B/Soul Recording of the Year 2017

Daniel Caesar

Pilgrim’s Paradise


R&B/Soul Recording of the Year





The world has come to understand R&B and soul music as a multi-faceted genre that transcends sound waves into the inner core of our existence – a genre that makes listeners feel, rather than just hear. For 21-year-old Toronto native Daniel Caesar, the R&B/soul genre serves as a skeleton to which he builds up with jarring gospel undertones, heart-tugging guitar chords, and soothing harmonious vocals.His debut effort

His debut effort Praise Break successfully captured the attention of many major publications and outlets, and was ranked in the 20 Best R&B Albums of 2014 by Rolling Stone Magazine. Caesar’s follow-up project Pilgrim’s Paradise was met with even greater praise, subsequently capturing the attention of both the Canadian and international music markets. Conveying moody anecdotes about life’s most pertinent lessons – love, loss, faith, desire and determination, Caesar tells a coming-of-age tale that is not only relatable, but genuine. With raw talent and an unwavering mystic, layer by layer, Caesar is writing a melodic story rooted in his authentic self — a story that has only just begun.
