Daniel Caesar Triumphs At CMW Radio Awards

By Nick Krewen

It seems as though Daniel Caesar can't stop racking up the awards.


The Oshawa-born neo-soul singer and songwriter added two Canadian Radio Music Awards to his mantle for 2018 - FACTOR Breakthrough Artist of the Year and Nielsen Talent Development Story of the Year - at the Wednesday, May 9, 2018 edition of the awards show, now in its 21st year.

"Thank you all very much. This means a lot," said Caesar as he stepped up to the podium in the Sheraton Centre's Dominion Ballroom. "I wanted to thank FACTOR and Nielsen and you guys - I wouldn't be here if you weren't listening. I appreciate it very much, thank you."

The Neilsen Talent Development Story Award was a debut, awarded to emerging artists and their extended teams based on the metrics recorded by Nielsen through their airplay, data-streaming and sales partners. 

Hosted by Letterkenny's  K. Trevor Wilson, this Bell Media presentation honoured musicians in 11 categories and featured performances by Felix Cartal, The Reklaws, New City, Romes and River Town Saints.
