Feeling a bit camera shy


Will was born and raised in Nashville, TN, as "the only person he knew while growing up" who could listen to 70's underground folk/country artists (think Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle) as well as classic rock or oldies radio stations. Those influences on his music are immeasureable.

Other influences include bands or artists who "mean something lyrically or melodically" and can also get your foot tapping. Such artists or bands include jazz acts like Duke Ellington or Gene Harris, and rock bands like the Jon Spenser Blues Explosion and Phish. Listening to Phish mostly taught him melody-complication and the need for condensed metaphors...

Will spends a great deal of his time living life, which is the activity that generates all of his lyrics. An educator by trade and a self-proclaimed luftmensch, Will is able to boil down society's "trip in a handbasket" into short-story-like songs. Some ideas only make it into poetry form, some make it all the way to song.

You can find him with his wife, Becca, and their dog, Perry, enjoying a quiet Nashville lifestyle probably somewhere in a local park, a local sushi shop or...at Home Depot...
