Name: Staasia Daniels
Tell us about yourself: Staasia Daniels is a singer/songwriter from Brampton, Ontario. When she was younger, she was inspired by many R&B greats (everything from Whitney to Beyonce) and sang their songs all day. When she started doing YouTube covers at the suggestion of her friends, she started getting worldwide recognition, which prompted her to take being an artist seriously. After enrolling in a college music program, she met her producer and GSX label-mate, Xpress aka DJXP, and the rest is future history. In 2016, she debuted an EP called “Hidden Gems”, which propelled her name into publications like Complex and NOW!, and earned her the opportunity to share her highly energetic performances in various stages and festivals, including Canadian Music Week, A3C in Atlanta, and SXSW. Her current sound ranges from smooth, silly, and sexy (such as “Peanut Butter”) to hard and trappy (in “Moretimes”), displaying a unique versatility in contemporary female R&B. Her latest EP “Mood Roulette” was released in January 2018 and offers yet another peek at all that Staasia has to offer, with hints of much more to come.
