    I love artist that write and sing this type of music. The whole CD jams! I agree that more people should be more open & support artist like Daley. The music industry isn’t what it used to be. So many great’s have passed on or been booted out… we’re really not left with many quilty singers/songwriters, so when one comes along, such as Daley, we need to grab’em-take hold of them-and build them up! I’ll be sure to continue to encourage and support great artist who are classic and original. I look forward to his future albums.
    Keep at it Daley;-))

    I was asleep, when I heard this beautiful song. As tired as I was and didn’t want to open my eyes, I had to see who was singing this song before it went off. To my surprise it was this soulfull young man and one of my favorite woman..Marsha Ambrosius from the fromer group Floetry. The words to this song really knows how to touch your heart, it made me listen to more of his music and I must say I love him…can’t wait to hear more!!
