Bio

\phe·nom·e·nal\ adj. - Extraordinary; wonderful; outstanding. And that's just one word to describe singer and songwriter Will Graves. The easy-going,
soft-spoken Memphis native would humbly deny those accolades but, the fact of the matter is that Will Graves has been causing a stir in Memphis with his incredible voice, heartfelt love stories and energetic live shows. This was recently evidenced as Will was dubbed the Grand Prize winner at the Mid-South Grammy Showcase sponsored by the Memphis Chapter of the Recording Academy. As a result, Graves was able to share the stage with some of the recording industry's hottest acts at the 2005 Beale Street Music Festival held during the now legendary Memphis in May.

A very spiritual individual, Will's mission is clear. "All of these 'sex' songs do more harm than good…" says Graves. "They deliver the wrong message about love." Will sets out to provide the romantic relief this world is so desperately in need of on his upcoming CD of refreshing love songs. Currently in production, this R&B project is laced with Graves' trademark smooth vocals, vivid lyrics and clearly demonstrates his ability to ride over a mixture of grooves, pop ballads, and dance pieces. And, his infectious, uplifting style has been well received, easily captivating audiences when he takes it to the stage as lead vocalist for the R&B band SOUL. These qualities have made Will a favorite to a very broad group of fans ages 21 and over.

The word of Will's talent is spreading and has already garnered visits to his live shows by other artists such as Justin Timberlake, Public Announcement and Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child. His talent has also afforded him the opportunity to perform alongside such artists as Glenn Jones, Miki Howard, Paul Taylor & Alex Bugnon, as well as perform before a capacity crowd on BET's Soundstage. After performing and receiving adoration from concert goers across the country, Will is set to release "Welcome Home" to local and regional radio for airplay in support of his debut album.
