Will Dailey is an acclaimed independent recording and performing artist who has toured North America and EU with his authentic DIY approach for over a decade. His sound has been described as having a rich vintage appreciation of song craft and a live show that echos Springsteen energy and dynamic set lists leading famed Rock journalist Dan Aquilante to declare Dailey “the real deal”. Dailey's last album was met with stellar reviews over 11 million spins on Spotify top 20 on Billboard Heat Seeker chart and won Album of the Year in the Boston Music Awards New England Music Awards and Improper Bostonian Magazine. Dailey who is already a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter also won Artist of the Year in 2014 and best male vocalist in 2015 and 2016.
