“It takes a lot of time to accept who you are,” says Chris Daughtry. “You shave off the persona that you thought people expected, stop worrying about what anyone is going to think. You start to be comfortable with who you are onstage and off, and that all blends together. I think I finally know who I am as a person.”
As the frontman for the band bearing his name, Chris Daughtry has become one of the most visible and consistent rock & roll torchbearers of the 21st Century. Since Daughtry rose to prominence on the fifth season of American Idol, the band has released five albums, all of which reached the Billboard Top Ten and have combined sales over 8 million copies in the U.S.
On June 6, 2018, the band released their new single “Deep End” (click here to listen). The anthemic first single is featured on the band’s 5th studio album Cage To Rattle, which released on July 27th via 19 Recordings/RCA Records.
“Deep End” was produced by Jacquire King (Niall Horan, Kings of Leon, James Bay) and co-written by Chris Daughtry. “Cage to Rattle has been the most fun yet most challenging album we’ve ever made,” says Chris. “It’s a musical stew we’ve been cooking up for more than 2 years and we can’t wait to satisfy the appetites of our amazing fans who’ve been patiently waiting for this record!”
Jacquire King states, “The thought of working with Chris really intrigued me. Undoubtedly he’s truly a great singer and we took the opportunity to go on a creative journey with his band to find something new for them. The outcome will showcase new dimension and inspiration that hopefully shows new and old fans the evolution of an artist.”
