I’m not really one for vocal obsessions, but Daley’s something quite rare.

Despite his pasty complexion, his wiry frame, his coiffed shock of firey curls and his M1 postcode, he sings with the combined powers of Absolute R&B Anthems ’95 through ’99. It’s quite something.

When we featured him in the mag a few months back the writer smugly pointed out the similarities between him and Mick Hucknall. But to all those naysayers I say one thing only:

Daley’s kindly given us his song ‘Rainy Day’ to give you. Click the name below to download.
