2016.11.16 - Ivy Hill Entertainment presents: Mr. Kind & Friends (EP Release) + Will Dailey - Free with RSVP - Doors at 7pm 

Wednesday, Novembe 16th

Show at 8pm

Awaken Cafe and Ivy Hill Entertainment present…

Mr. Kind

Ivy Hill Entertainment is proud to present a night of original music and collaborations: Mr. Kind and Friends (The WILD EP Release) and special guest Will Daily, Boston Troubadour.

Mr. Kind is a balancing act. The Oakland-based electro acoustic band unabashedly celebrates their influences, in their 2012 Halloween tribute to Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot and with Mr. Kind & …, which covered indie classics by Spoon, Blur and The Postal Service.

This spirit culminated in the creation of Ivy Hill Entertainment (IHE), co-founded by 3 members of Mr. Kind, to coordinate a community of musicians at events throughout California, including high-profile weddings, corporate events, film festivals, and regular music series.

The original works of Mr. Kind have evolved during that time as well, from the bedroom indie crunch of OK (2012), to the guitar-laden americana in their second EP, Mr. Kind (2013), and Wide Awake | Open Hands (2014), which explored shimmering electro-pop, confessional lyrics with a somber tone running throughout.

Their newest EP, The Wild, is available for the first time below.

Will Dailey is an acclaimed independent recording and performing artist. His sound has been described as having a rich vintage vibe while having a firm appreciation of AM rock, pop and big hooks.

He recently shared the stage with Eddie Vedder in Chicago this summer, joining him for 5 songs for the Hot Stove Cool Music Benefit and was direct support for G Love’s summer tour. He was featured on a Stephen King/John Mellencamp project produced by T Bone Burnett called Ghost Brothers Of Darkland County and, in that same year, 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. Dailey’s music has been featured on over 50 TV programs and films.

Will Dailey is currently in the studio recording exclusive material for fans.
