You've probably never heard of Cael Dadian, but he's hoping you soon will! While many youth today are seemingly content with being teens and doing teen-things, aspiring musician Cael from San Diego, California has a music career in his sight. The 17-year-old high school student brings a little of everything musically to the table. His primary genre seems to be pop with some r&b and hip hop elements added. This young man also has a fluidity to his rap free style, that he proudly showcases on many of his tracks. His ability to play multiple instruments allows him to add "Acoustic Artist" to his growing resume.
Cael has been honing his skills for about nine years. He credits Drake Bell (actor/muscian), for peeking his music interest and in motivating him to learn to play the guitar. For inspiration the walls in Cael's room are covered with artists that inspire him like Justin Timberlake and Kanye West. West, whose past off-and-sometimes-on stage antics has made him a target for the paparazzi, at first glance may not seem like a likely choice as a role model. However, his talents and musical accomplishments are such, that any aspiring artist could admire. Cael enjoys playing his music in front of family and friends who lend their support to his craft by catching his sets at local coffee houses. But according to Cael, he feels more at home on the stage where he gets the opportunity to play in front of larger crowds like the ones at the El Ray (Los Angeles) or the House Of Blues (San Diego). Cael plans on releasing his first EP later this year, but for now you can listen to his music on soundcloud.com/caeldadian.
Once you meet Cael, you'll be able to see for yourself just how remarkable of a young man he is not only for his ability to sing and write songs, but for his drive and determination that rivals most adults. Cael has been able to open many doors for himself and to get his name out in the industry. At times chasing his dream can feel like a full-time job to him but it's one that he takes seriously. Though he does still allow time to be a kid, it's his hunger to succeed and no-quit-attitude that's going to help propel this young man into success.
