Cael Dadian – ‘Or So I Thought’
San Diego-based artist Cael Dadian has released the magnificent single ‘Or So I Thought’ today, 18th February 2022. It is a contemporary R&B song that needs to be added to your weekend playlist!
A skilful electric guitar opens the single before Cael Dadian’s soulful vocals enter. The vocals instantly take the reins of the song. Dadian’s voice has a rich tone that is warm and inviting. His performance is intimate, and it feels as though Dadian is singing directly to you.
The chordal progression is unexpected, adding layers of interest and intrigue to the piece. The guitar and vocal melodies effortlessly weave their way in and out of one another. Never crowding one another and always complementing the other’s performance.
The layered vocals, bass, and guitar create vivid colours within the track. In addition, the main hook is memorable and stays with the listener long after the music has ended.
Guitarist Jonah Cuddy has joined Dadian on this latest release. After seeing a Tiktok video of Cuddy’s, Danian reached out and ‘Or So I Thought’ is the divine result. Cuddy is currently a student at Berklee School of music. He is a super talented musician, and the duo compliments each other’s styles well.
Dadian says about the release, “Musically, ‘Or So I Thought’ combines both of our strong suits – Jonah is an extremely smooth jazz-oriented guitarist, and I love writing concept-driven jazzy/mellow R&B songs.” He continues, “I’ve had this title in my notes for a while and immediately thought of it when I heard Jonah’s playing.”

It is truly a superb release that sets Cael Dadian as an artist to watch in 2022. He is a musician who is on the rise, making waves, and we can not wait to hear what he will do next!
