Dayton James is a Toronto-based singer-songwriter and musician from the U.K. Not too long ago, he released an adorable R&B tune, entitled, “Already Won”.

“I don’t know why I catch you staring. I still know nothing when it comes to you. You build empires with walls so daring. So why would you fall just to let me in? You could have anyone you could want. But look at you here in my arms. Not going nowhere, so let’s take it somewhere.” – lyrics

‘Already Won’ tells a charming tale of a young guy who obtains the woman who his heart desires for him to have.

Later, he admits that he’s lost for words because his sweetheart could’ve had anyone in the world, but she chose him.

‘Already Won’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and well-placed melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses intimate instrumentation scented with a contemporary R&B aroma and warm candlelight setting.

“‘Already Won’ is the song that made me embark on this project. I was in the studio with Tee (the producer) and an artist, working on her project. I suggested a lyric idea, and she responded, ‘I wouldn’t say that’. 9 times out of 10, when writing for other artists, they don’t take from their own vocabulary and brain and leave it up to me to decide for them. So when she said that I had to take a step back. It had me thinking, ‘I wonder what it would be like to be able to take my own stories but actually write them for myself’. So when she left the session, I voiced this to Tee and we decided to try it out. The first thing we made was ‘Already Won’.” – Dayton James

Dayton James is a name you should remember.

As a teenager, music was not always an outlet that he could rely on because singing wasn’t always deemed as the cool thing to do.

But, James was forced to embrace who he is after a YouTube video of him singing was uploaded by his mother. Shortly afterward, the video made its way around his school, and the rest is history. 

Since then, James has traveled the world, writing a string of songs for other artists such as Shaggy, etc. Also, not too long ago, he signed a publishing deal with Black Butter/Kobalt.

“Recording “Already Won” was surreal because, before this moment, I would vocal songs in the style of the artist. I would be trying to pitch it to. This time, I had to sing it in my style, something I had no idea of. I was about to find out.” – Dayton James
