Biography

“SANCTUARY” Will’s much anticipated debut album finds the singer/songwriter in top form and breaking out with a collection of tightly woven songs that beg to be heard. Fused with elements of Drum and Bass, Garage, Pop, Electronica and R&B, the album takes you on a journey of intense emotions and picturesque landscapes of life through Will's eyes. From floor-thumping dance cuts like the title track “Sanctuary” to heartfelt, emotional and honest ballads like Lost in Your Soul and “Girl Named Kate" (Acoustic Version) "SANCTUARY" delivers Will's emotive and expressive voice and his ability to elicit different moods and feelings from love, to doubt, anger, bliss, and spirituality which singularly prove he is a true master of the craft.

"This album has taken about three years to complete" says Will "and it was a personal journey that I needed to accomplish. My first love is music and to complete this album meant to me that I could do anything I put myself to."

People tried to steer me in other directions, but it was my love of music that kept me focused and brought me this far. Music is what I hold on to as I move forward in my Journey.

The 13 songs found on "SANCTUARY" are all a part of Will’s unique and complex psyche. Along the way Will picked up some extraordinary players to round out the sound he wanted. Jason Nuccio and Billy Harkowsky (great pop songwriters) Ami Ortiz ( fantastic vocalist, and member of the 50’s Girl Group “The Chantals” and collaborator Mike Degen (known in NY as one of the best independent producers available) whom, not only produced the album but tweaked most of the gadgets used to create Will’s encompassing sound.

“Working with these different people has helped me tremendously. I’m used to working by myself, but I have a new found respect for the differences that other people bring to the project.”

Will doesn’t only bring himself to the table when working on projects, he brings his professionalism, determination and a willingness to try new things. Will has never been afraid to push the envelope and its apparent in accomplishments Will has achieved in his short but varied career. In 1997 Will joined an Electronic Pop group called Carol Masters as the lead singer. Within a few short months Will was touring with the band opening for such acts as Anything Box and Modern English.

In 1999 Will decided to start laying the ground work for his debut album “Sanctuary”. With no corporate sponsors, Will financed his project alone.

In 2002, Will was on stage performing and wooing new fans everywhere. He even wooed BUDWEISER into sponsoring him for one of his shows in New York City. One of Will’s greatest accomplishments was his performance at Madison Square Garden and BBKing’s in New York for the New York Film and Video Festival. Those performances have garnered Will and award for Outstanding Achievement.

Whatever direction Will takes, it will be sure to lead him to the success he deserves. His gorgeous album SANCTUARY is just a testament to the multidimensional facets of Will’s personality strength and talent and a small window into the future of what Will has to offer.

Lyrics

Sanctuary

Written By: Will, Mike Degen

Pull me closer to your heart
I wanna feel
The cool heat of your skin
Push me closer to the start of something real
I wanna break you in
Wrap me up inside your arms and hold on tight
A haven just for us
It could be anything you want we have all night
I find Sanctuary
Within your boundaries
I find Sanctuary
Deep inside your soul

(Repeat Chorus)

Faster falling everyday I have you here
Makes me want you more and more
I think of every little thing that I hold dear
I’ve found a sanctuary hear for you and me
We never have to leave
A solitude for all our love, our hopes our fears
I find Sanctuary
Within your boundaries
I find Sanctuary
Deep inside your soul

(Repeat Chorus)

You know you’ll always be my Sanctuary
You know you’ll always be my Sanctuary
You know you’ll always be my Sanctuary
Pull me closer to your heart
I wanna feel
The cool heat of your skin
Push me closer to the start of something real
I find Sanctuary
Within your boundaries
I find Sanctuary
Deep inside your soul

(Repeat Chorus)

What If

Written By: Jason Nuccio;Will

What If I told you I don’t Believe
Would you Turn and Walk Away From Me
What If I told you Its just Make Believe
Would it even Really Matter

Don’t you know I have a hard time
Believing what you Believe
Don’t you know I have a hard time
Seeing What you See

What If I told You Ive tried to Believe
But no one ever answers me
What if I told You Pray for me
Would you find the strength to Whisper Softly

(Don’t you know I have a hard time
Believing what you Believe
Don’t you know I have a hard time
Seeing What you See
(break)

(Don’t you know I have a hard time
Believing what you Believe
Don’t you know I have a hard time
Seeing What you See

Girl Named Kate

Written By: Jason Nuccio;Will

Just the other day
I met a girl named Kate
She said
Come share my vision of love not hate
Then she turned from me and she walked away
My eyes followed for a block or three
All the while hoping
She’d look back at me

But my eyes start to fail
And my body shakes
The sun steals my vision
and the cold bites my face
But I still cant help
Help to wonder
Why

She Chose Me
She Chose Me
She Chose Me

Just the other day
I met a girl named Kate
She said
Come share my vision of love not hate
Come Share my vision of Love
Come share my vision of Love
Come Share my vision of Love Not hate
