Meetup Description: You already may have heard of Will Dailey without even knowing it. His songs have appeared on numerous network and cable TV shows such as What About Brian, The Hills, Army Wives, NCIS, The Young and The Restless, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York, where Will himself performed on camera.
Will Daily is a widely known talent on the east coast- he?s been playing in bars and clubs in the Boston area since he was 16 and won the Boston Music Award (best male Singer Songwriter) in 2006- but is poised to take the West Coast by storm on his current EP-release tour.
A bit of history:
After moving to LA several years back, Dailey was on the verge of Hollywood music fame when he was hospitalized with appendicitis. At the time, Dailey had no health insurance, so he came home from the hospital with a $50,000 bill. To get back on his feet, Dailey returned to Boston (home), and decided that he and his manager would put out an album on their own. (Previously, they were entertaining production offers from prestigious industry talents, foremost Neil Young?s crew.) To finance the album, Dailey sold his precious tour-mobile, a red Honda Civic, and named the forthcoming album ?GoodbyeRedBullet,? in it?s honor. With the help of friends and family, Dailey generated enough publicity to sell more than 10,000 copies. As luck would have it, the album?s producer, Tom Polce, later helped Dailey become the first artist signed to now-industry-giant CBS Records!
Always putting his own twist to classic rock, Dailey?s newest project ?Torrent? is a four-part album to be released as distinctive EPs, every three months. Instead of having a full album that is thematically consistent, Dailey?s various EPs will each reflect certain stories or moods (60?s and early 70?s music in ?The Fashion of Distraction,? and later, a Boston-influenced EP featuring local artistic colleagues in ?By The Blue Hills.?)
Dailey?s music may be rooted in classic rock ? as he says, ?It?s part of your vernacular growing up? ? but his songs aren?t stuck in the past, they?re vital, beautiful tunes about the here and now.
