Biography

Will Dailey started playing his wee guitar through a wee amp--bought with money from his piggy-bank savings--at age twelve. He played his first pub show at 16, and has been playing theaters, clubs, living-rooms, and local drinking establishments across the country ever since. Dailey is dedicated to the musician’s lifestyle, saying, “It is all I have ever done and all I will ever do.”

It is well documented that Dailey sold his little red Civic to pay for the release of his debut album, aptly named Goodbyeredbullet. With no money left over for touring, Dailey relied on the support of friends, family, fans, and the generous hearts of the world to help him get his music out to audiences around the U.S. He says of his life on the road, “I was making a living. Not by Rolling Stone standards, but it was certainly a success to be doing what I wanted.” Dailey became a testament to the fact that DIY artists can, and do, succeed.

On his own, without the backing of a major label, Will amassed a mailing list of over 25,000 and developed street teams not only around the States, but in Brazil, Canada, and reaching as far as Australia. His songs have appeared in shows like, “Surface”, GQ’s 2003 Awards show for segments honoring Peter Jackson (Lord OfThe Rings) & Johnny Depp, VH1 Fashion Awards shows, MTV Real World’s Battle of the Sexes (credits theme), MTV spring break commercials & fother Viacom commercials, Boston Red Sox Friday Night Home Game Commercials 2004 UPN 38, and in many independent movies, skateboard, snowboard and ski videos.

After discovering great success with his first independently released 2004 album, Goodbyeredbullet, and using the money from the 10,000 albums that he sold from out of the back of his car, Dailey headed to Los Angeles, where he began extensive touring of the west coast and exhaustive hustling of the LA music scene. After many successful shows at such landmark venues as The Viper Room and Hotel Café, he hit his first indie artist road bump: He wound up in the emergency room with appendicitis and without health insurance. And with more medical bills than Ron Burgundy has chest hair, Dailey had to abandon the pursuit of recording a new album. Playing shows became a means of survival as he tried to earn enough money to pay off hospital bills. Dailey managed to return to Boston, but almost immediately got a call from his manager in LA saying that he had a record deal for him and that his next album could begin ASAP.

The new album, Back Flipping Forward, is already generating tremendous buzz even before its release. Dailey is being compared to artists like Jeff Buckley, Martin Sexton, and Ben Harper. Dailey can’t wait for the release and subsequent tour, saying: “I have a car, a real guitar, an amazing band backing me up, fans all over the country that are like family and family that are like fans.” Things are certainly looking up for Will Dailey, so be sure to look out for him in 2006.

Lyrics

I Have To Get You Off Of My Mind

Written By: Will Dailey

It’s tuesday already the 22nd of july
and I have to get you off of my mind

the world is still spinning and I’m falling behind
so I have to get you off of my mind

and in these days with all I do
I can’t seem to mail my letters
there’s no right to write about it
there’s no science in an other
and whether we’re meeting, well
I think I’d walk the line
but I have to get you off of my mind

darling, honey, feel the fire when
noone, not anybody has turned their smile
around, around

the telephone is humming now to no other line
and it says I have to get you off of my mind

and darling, and honey, the feel the fire when
noone, not anybody has turned their smile
around, around

and I sleep all day cause it’s always night
who would have thought it
Lyrics
now I know I am breakable
and you could piece me back together

and whether we’re meeting, well
I think I’d walk the line
but I have to get you off of my
have to get you off of my
I have to get you off of my mind

it’s tuesday already the 22nd of july
and I have to get you off of my mind

Slow Her Down

Written By: Will Dailey

I have a girl that feels like a carnival
I have a girl you smell when shes cold
all my friends are pissed and they talk to me like I have dissapeared
and she has hurricanes in her words and thoughts
she swallows thunder and coughs up dust
bigger than a movie and quick as a rumor, I can’t hold on

if she goes to jail, I will always call
the warden to make sure she’s alive

there’s no one fast enough to slow her down
there’s no one strong enough to stand her ground
if she wants to fight, I will get my glove
I will go all night, oh yes I will

she has jackknife lips cutting back and forth
she has a switchblade tongue, I’ve been stabbed of course
if you kiss her ???, you’ll never be the same, you’ll just fall apart

if she gets parole, what do you know
you better run for your life

there’s no one fast enough to slow her down
there’s no one strong enough to stand her ground
if she wants to fight, I will get my glove
I will go all night, oh yes I will

I will go all night, oh yes I will

la dee dah, da da di da di da dum
la dee dah, da da di da di da dum
la dee dah, da da di da di da dum
la dee dah, da da di da di da dum

there’s no one fast enough to slow her down
there’s no one strong enough to stand her ground
if she wants to fight, I will get my glove
I will go all night, oh yes I will
