"Desirae Garcia, The Haunted Windchimes"

"The Ugly Architect's self-titled release has an ease that is hard not to love. Cheeky at times, and sung over plucked Iron & Wine-styled guitar, his songs conjure up all the best feelings. It reminds me of all of my favorite music, but it's most definitely his to call his own." -

"Jesse Elliot, These United States"

"I don't know why, but the name says it all. The Ugly Architect is someone you want to get to know - a set of songs that's an old friend, maybe even a brand new friend, that you can't help but listen to, argue with, nod in silent agreement, laugh out loud together, all the way he takes you across the mountains and plains, rivers and valleys, sunset to sunrise, or maybe the reverse, and you can't think of a journey you'd rather be on." -


Still working on that hot first release.



The Ugly Architect is the recording moniker of William S. Knudsen and a rotating cast of musicians. Based in Colorado, Knudsen extensively toured venues, festivals, and universities in North America as a performance poet before The Ugly Architect's formation in 2015. Combining a singer-songwriter aesthetic with an indie-rock ensemble, The Ugly Architect brings a lively, captivating sound to their debut EP, released June 2016.
