Our Boston-based ARTIST of the Week has a deftness with storytelling. Watch him perform!
ARTISTdirect is pleased to premiere this exclusive video of Will Dailey performing the song "Higher Education," which lives on his third album and first indie release National Throat. Right now is your chance to catch Will Dailey live, without even leaving the house. Does it get any better than that? No, actually. It doesn't.
It's a rustic, emotional clip, featuring Dailey with a trusty banjo.
The footage was shot on January 9, 2014, at Red Star Union, which hosts live series with artists.
Before you indulge in a little live Will Dailey action, here is some other critical intel about the artist, who hails from Boston. He is a singer/songwriter who has performed at Farm Aid in the past. His work nods to the greats in the rock genre—that'd be Bob Dylan and Neil Young.
The song is rich and rife with meaning and Dailey's deftness with storytelling is readily apparent. His voice is distinct as a fingerprint and he clearly loves letting the words tumble from his mouth as his fingers do their thing with the instrument in his hands.
The track is as upbeat as it is contemplative and it feels like it would be a perfect fit for the closing scene of the season finale of Girls. Really.
