The singer-songwriter also premieres the video to first 'Praise Break' single, 'Violet'
Daniel Caesar is a new artist that’s bound to break out. The Toronto-based singer-songwriter has the vocal and lyrical clout that can pacify the most heavy hearted, which one can experience in his new EP, Praise Break.
Check out Daniel Caesar’s 7-song below, premiered here on The Juice.
Praise Break follows an inquisitive Caesar navigating through experiences in love (first love in this case) to religion, which Caesar says specifically inspired the EP heavily.
"The phrase has a double meaning. Usually in church, when the congregation is overcome by the Holy Spirit for a moment, the people will interrupt the sermon to yell their praises, and dance for joy. I think the idea of a break from praise has taken on a more literal meaning in my life today. I was raised in an intensely religious household and I think the influence shows through my music," he tells Billboard. "In [the] 11th grade, I was kicked out of a Christian private school. I got caught selling weed to the resident students. Simply put, my parents found out and told the school; that kind of started me on the path I'm on now. I ended up having to leave home to make the music I wanted to make, and to find myself. As cliche as that sounds; I like to think I'm getting closer."
