Style: Pop, R&B

Danjul channels his early childhood influences (Brandy, *NSYNC) into a well-executed modern brand of pop. Production style is rich, even bombastic at times, like on the 3/4 waltz-time tune “Scarecrow,” which features the artist’s soulful, heartfelt voice. Meanwhile, the downcast but danceable “Faded Destiny” (“I’m so tired of waiting”) adds some hip-hop/rap to the mix. We not only love the march-time snare drum, but also the bold synth keys whose texture and shear vitality inject plenty of life into songs like “Eyes on You.” Overall, Danjul is expert at his craft, and his tendency to sound quite a bit like The Weeknd, though it might turn some off, will likely be of interest to film/TV music supervisors.
