Biography

Will Dailey & The Rivals pave a new path with their upcoming full length self titled album and first for Universal Republic Records.

Breaking from an approach they employed on their last series of recordings, Will Dailey and his musical cohorts don’t stick to one simple theme, emotion, genre, or style this time out. Rather, the Boston group incorporates elements of introspective folk and invigorating pop into one big rock ‘n’ roll ride.

When Will Dailey entered a Somerville, MA studio with The Rivals and producer Tom Polce in October 2010, he had one goal. “I wanted to shy away from the singer-songwriter side of things and make a real rock and roll record… the ‘roll’ seems to have disappeared from a lot of rock, and we’ve made it part of our mission to bring it back,” the singer, guitarist and lead songwriter declares. “The songs may unfold themselves in many different ways, but the music needed to be high-energy, adventurous, and get right to the heart of the matter.”

The band accomplished their mission with flying colors. Hunkering down for four marathon weeks in the studio, Dailey, Dave Brophy , Matt Pynn , and Matt Tahaney poured their hearts into making a record that reflects the band members’ intense devotion to the songs and belief in rock’n’roll.

“The whole recording experience was us in a room struggling, arguing, and having beautiful moments together at the same time,” Dailey recalls. “It’s a real band record, and that’s why it’s called Will Dailey & The Rivals.
