When you think of the Toronto music scene, the first names that come to mind probably include Drake, PARTYNEXTDOOR, and pretty much the whole OVO movement in general. But there's a lot more the 6 has to offer, like singer-songwriter Daniel Caesar, who is making moves in his own lane. The 21-year-old artist began singing as early as he can remember, and started to take things more seriously when he graduated high school. It was after this that Caesar met some big names in the scene, and began to work on his first EP, Praise Break. His music focuses on themes of love, the millennial generation, and religion—something that played a large role in his upbringing. 

It's hard to distinguish Daniel's sound as one genre in particular. Rather, his style is an amalgamation of his influences, which includes everything from rock, R&B, soul, and gospel. While he already has four EPs under his belt, Daniel Caesar is just getting started. To get to know more about Daniel and what brought him to where he is today, check out the video above.
