ASO Presents is proud to welcome Leela James and Daley to the Atlanta Symphony Hall stage this April! Tickets for this performance will go on sale this Friday, February 10th at 10:00 am at Ticketmaster and the Woodruff Arts Center Box Office.
Leela James sings because the music is in her blood. It always has been. Rhythm accompanied her as a child in Compton, CA. Melody is what got her her first major label deal at 20 years old. And now, set to release her sixth studio album Did It For Love on 3/31/17, a personal magnum opus written with her two beautiful children in mind? Harmony and Soul.
This spring, James will embark on a headlining nationwide tour in support of Did It For Love. The album’s first single, ‘Don’t Want You Back’, is already top 5 on the Urban AC charts and continues to rise. For James, dedicating her energy entirely to writing and recording Did It For Love left her aching to get back on the road. “I am so excited to be going back on tour. There’s nothing like interacting with people and seeing how the crowd reacts to my new music. This album has been a wonderful experience, just an incredible project to work on. I feel so positive and I want to try to bring that on stage, and to everyone I meet.” Leela James can be followed online at http://www.facebook.com/LeelaJames/ and http://www.twitter.com/LeelaJames.
Daley is a singer, songwriter and recording artist hailing from Manchester, UK. A British boy who grew up to the sounds of Prince, Chaka Khan, D’Angelo, Radiohead and Oasis – Daley first became prominent after co-writing and featuring on the Gorillaz hit ‘Doncamatic’ under the wing of the band’s creator Damon Albarn in London. He has since become one of the UK’s most respected soulful exports, recording and touring on both sides of the Atlantic.
With a new single arriving Spring 2017 and currently adding the final touches to his second album project, Daley is drawing on experiences both professional and personal of the last two years, honoring the loss of close friend and manager Richard Antwi. Daley is also poised to open the door on the next chapter of his musical journey with renewed perspective… and eagerly awaited new music!
