Will Dailey is an acclaimed recording and performing artist, who is a three-time winner of the Boston Music Award for Best Singer/Songwriter. In June of 2013 he was featured on a Stephen King/John Mellencamp project produced by T Bone Burnett called Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County and also released an original song he wrote inspired by Jack Kerouac's Tristessa. In September of 2013 he played his fourth Farm Aid Concert along side Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp and in November finished up a 9 city tour of France. Dailey's music has been featured on over 50 TV programs and films. The first single from his new album National Throat, due out later in 2014 on Wheelkick Records, is already a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition. Rock journalist Steve Morse said recently of the new album, "Will Dailey's pop smarts, his dedication to detail, and his soul-inflected voice are just what we need right now to restore belief in music. His new songs are personal epiphanies with a universal appeal."
“Dailey’s latest album makes it clear that good songwriting isn’t a matter of hiding behind shiny production or an over-stylized persona. His music doesn’t contain a note of pretense. If anything, it is committed to the beauty of simplicity. National Throat is a statement about the value of creativity and the survival of art. Dailey believes the truth will find its way out, that what is real and beautiful will rise to the top.” - Jon Karr, New York Minute Magazine, May 2015
A brave composer, performer, and traveler, Marina Evans combines strong, sultry vocals with traditional folk americana and an indie pop edge to create a sound that is all her own. Her studio work deftly combines various styles, genres, and instrumentation – from sweet ballads to folk anthems to straight up rock and roll – and paints a picture of a versatile and passionate artist.
Beginning her career as a teenager performing the American Songbook in a jazz duo, Evans found her voice as a songwriter while in college in New York City. Teaching herself folk guitar and mixing it with the jazz inflections she had honed in her voice – an aspect of her sound she still preserves today, performing not only as a songwriter but also with several big bands around New England – led to a unique blend of genres that she has refined over countless hours on the road, the stage, and in the studio.
In recent years Evans has written and released 3 original EPs and a full-length album, and has traveled with her music across the United States – from Portland to Nashville, New Orleans to Los Angeles, and everywhere in between. Marina has performed in London and in Italy as well, where she wrote, recorded, and co-produced her two records The Tuscan Sessions and Unbound with Italian guitarist and producer Bernardo Baglioni.
Her unique sound and powerful stage presence have earned her opening sets for such legends as Judy Collins, Jonathan Edwards, Loudon Wainwright III, and Ellis Paul; she has also been honored with two consecutive nominations for Female Performer of the Year at the New England Music Awards (2014 and 2015). A bold, honest performer, clever lyricist, and a dedicated songwriter, Marina Evans is a star on the rise whose songs and spirit are not to be missed.
