Golden Walker started as a mantra about carrying a message and communicating authentically,” Dailey offers. “Connection, itself, and the amount of connecting cannot be the end goal any longer. There is too much loneliness for that to be true. Nurturing and strengthening the important connections we have is a way forward -- the emotional economy of the future.”
The album's title came from a chance encounter with a sculptor in France who beckoned Dailey to his workshop after a show. The craftsman was so moved by the music that he welded a piece, right then and there, of a man walking with a golden nugget on his shoe. As he told Dailey, “When I heard you tonight through the walls of my workshop, I heard real communication. You have to keep communicating like that. You have to carry the gold, protect it.”
Songwriters, by their very nature, move through life not only from the inside out, but also from the outside in. They look and listen at the worlds within and around them, pulling it all in and pouring it all out in melody. Music is about connecting hearts through art, as singer/songwriter Will Dailey well proves on his newest offering, Golden Walker, calling on us to turn away from our screens and toward each other.
The album includes both singles and another unreleased track. Golden Walker will be available on June 1st, 2018. You can also enter the Golden Walker giveaway for a chance to win unique prize packages: http://smarturl.it/PresaveGoldenWalker
