Oh my god, you guys, it’s time for a new installment of Songs of the Revolution! For those not hip to it, Songs of the Revolution is a series in which we capture some exclusive, stripped-down recordings by both established and up-and-coming artists as they tour through our town. We offer them to you as streaming video and free audio download. And it is awesome.
This week, we feature hometown hero Will Dailey. Will’s newest record, made with his band, The Rivals and released by Universal/Republic, has brought the singer-songwriter to a new level. In addition to being a regular on the Farm Aid tour and having won multiple Boston Music Awards, Will’s songs have been heard all over television and radio. After a recent gig, Will and longtime drummer Dave Brophy stopped in at Moontower Studio to record versions of an older song, a newer song, and a new spin on a classic cover.
