Daniel Richter - The journey from "Eleven Past One" to an emerging indie pop solo career!

For Immediate Release:
March 2023 (Ottawa/ Toronto, ON)

Future 5th in partnership SGMGroupArtists are proud to announce the release of Daniel Richter's new single "Forget You" on Future Sound/The Orchard, March 24th, 2023!!

Daniel Richter is making a bold move!” From his solo venture under the name Valdii, Daniel has made the decision to re-brand and restart his solo music career!

Daniel is taking the driver’s seat and speeding into the spotlight with new releases and a fresh eye on the future. With a solid history of making pop rock hits, and a voice that will send shivers down your spine, this classically trained pianist and quintessential front man / stage performer brings a ton of experience and talent into the spotlight!

Daniel comes to us from Toronto, Canada where he originally fronted the band Eleven Past One. They signed a deal with Warner Music Canada and were on their roster from 2013 until 2016. Best known for their breakout gold selling single 'The World Is Ours' circa 2013, the song dominated the radio charts in Canada, and established Daniel as a formidable songwriter and entertainer. Daniel has since worked with numerous artists, writers, and producers both as the leader of Eleven Past One and as a solo artist. With almost 3 million streams accumulated from the band’s top 5 Spotify tracks, and a quick approach to a million streams on his solo top 10 under the name Valdii!

Daniel is preparing for new releases and a fresh approach to making the world his again!

When asked, this is what Daniel had to say: "When I say I’m ready to release new music, it’s an understatement! For the past while now I’ve been putting together a new team and I'm excited to see what that brings! I think it just makes the most sense for me to be known as Daniel Richter from the band Eleven Past One, I might as well celebrate my past while I embrace the future! After working on new music for about a year now, my first song as Daniel Richter is called FORGET YOU. It’s pretty amazing how this ‘forgotten’ song was brought to life four years after being written. So that in itself is even more of a reason to be excited to release new music. I really hope my fans enjoy this song. I’m not going to tell you what I wrote this song about just yet. I’ll tell you one thing though… you’ll most likely think it’s about a relationship, but its definitely not!"

The new single "Forget You" comes out on March 24th. With fresh music, branding and a reignited team, Daniel is very much looking forward to the future! The Valdii catalogue will slowly move over to Daniel's new music profile soon after the release, and his career will be riding a wave, and chasing the sun!

We wish Daniel the best of luck on this new adventure!
