BIOGRAPHY

STAASIA DANIELS is an R&B singer/songwriter who has quietly established herself as “one to watch” for a collection of singles and videos in the past few years. Daniels’ take on R&B veers into the dreamy and steamy side of the genre. Her vocals are equal parts sultry and soulful, while her lyrics delve into levels of vulnerability that we all long for.

Daniels has performed at SXSW, A3C, Canadian Music Week, NXNE and Manifesto (with Ari Lennox). She has been featured in NOW, Exclaim! and Complex and can be found playing shows around the city at Mod Club, Drake Underground and Rivoli.

Supported by OAC and FACTOR, Staasia Daniels just released her latest EP Unheard Volumes – a complex dark horse confession that promises to claim her spot amongst the new wave of artists re-shaping the sounds of R&B.

Staasia Daniels featured in NOW Magazine

“The line between R&B and Soul is carefully blurred with mellifluous vocals by Staasia Daniels. The young singer propels listeners into a state of utter bliss with airy vocals on aggressive 808’s… It’s only a matter of time before Staasia gets an opportunity to truly shine.”
-JumpTheMagazine.com

“In fact, I’m willing to bet money that this soulful R&B crooner is the next big thing coming out of Toronto. She’d probably kill me for saying that, not because she doesn’t believe in her talent, but because she’s not one for bragging.”
-Talia Leacock

“R&B has never sounded sexier. One of the smoothest projects we heard all year, full of chilled out r&b flavor reminiscent of Aaliyah and Brandy. We are sure we will be hearing way more from the talented songstress.”
-MusicAndOtherDrugs.com

“Staasia Daniels has quietly established a ‘one to watch’ tag for a collection of singles and videos in the past few years… Daniels is deserving of all the attention that’s coming her way.”
-Ryan B. Patrick for Exclaim!
