Will Dailey's Back Flipping Forward will be the first release from the newly launched CBS Records, a label that combines traditional music marketing with direct integration of its artists' music into television programming on the CBS and CW networks. The October 2 release of Dailey's Back Flipping Forward will benefit from this undeniably powerful medium--and one that is playing an increasingly important role in breaking artists--when he performs his first single "Rise" on-camera in a special episode of CSI: NY on October 17. As an added bonus, a commercial immediately following this episode will "back announce" Dailey's performance and inform the audience that the song and album are available for purchase.
The songs on Back Flipping Forward, Dailey's CBS Records debut, were written over a three-year span, inspired by the people he encountered and the places he stumbled upon while playing countless shows on a series of rambling cross-country tours. Tracks--such as the lovely melodic opener "Boom Boom," the infectious pop-rocker "Bi Polar Baby," the anthemic "Rise" (the album's first single) and the gorgeous Appalachian folk closer, "Dear Grace," a number usually done a cappella during Dailey's live shows, reflect his eclectic influences, from Tom Waits to early Rod Stewart.
