Will Dailey & The Faithless Electors
Though fortune and fame have never been of main concern, Daileys music has been amplified by acclaim: He is a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter and his songs have been featured on more than 50 shows and films. Critics agree that he holds his ground performing next to artists like Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews, and John Mellencamp. He was unfazed by the call from Oscar and Grammy-winning producer T Bone Burnett to join Elvis Costello, Sheryl Crowe, and Rosanne Cash in the studio. All this from a man who has never, ever been anything but a musician.
But with his latest release, National Throat, Dailey risked the potential to obtain an even broader reach by parting with a major label after realizing his goals and theirs were out of whack. This time he counted on a solid fan base to save him from a failing partnership, the inspiration for one of the albums most talked-about songs. Im jumping overboard /And Im swimming back to shore, Dailey sings over a Burnett-inspired tune in Sunken Ship. Somewhat stranded but never alone, he took charge and involved his fans in a communal creative process through Pledge Music. It will be a unique experience, he wrote to his fans, a one of a kind process. When the day is done, you will have elevated my music to a whole new level. A true artistic community will be built here.
And build it they did. Daileys fans admiration feeds National Throat from the inside out like gas to an engine.
