Today I’m giving some much-deserved props to Boston’s own Will Dailey and The Rivals, who recently caught my ear with the sunny, hook-laden acoustic gem ”Counting on Karma” off their 2011 self-titled release. Dailey and company have enjoyed a recent wave of critical acclaim and a steady rise in popularity, earning two Boston Music Awards for Best Male Singer-Songwriter and opening for legends like Neil Young and Willie Nelson. Next Tuesday (3/27/12), the band will play a live set on WERS 88.9 FM, Emerson College’s student-run station and one of the best sources of new music you can find. Should be a smashing show, so be sure to tune in.
“To read a newspaper is to refrain from reading something worthwhile. The first discipline of education must therefore be to refuse resolutely to feed the mind with canned chatter.”—Aleister Crowley (1875 - 1947)
