Will is a captivating performer who lights up a room with his humor and songs.
His music has a dreamy indie folk vibe, settling somewhere between the cinematic musings of Gregory Alan Isakov and suitcase stomping of Shakey Graves.
Whether playing a large club show or tucked in the corner of a brewery or nursing home, his collection of home baked originals and creative cover tunes makes people want to stick around for another couple more songs!
