NB Apologies for the lack of activity in general. I'm having to "go dark" for a while on everything except live gigs currently. I will explain all once the situation in question is resolved.

Drop Will an email at willmakower@yahoo.co.uk or give him a call on 07941 847870

Will is a keyboard wielding solo artist singer/songwriter, who plays & sings like his life depends on it, creates soulful, passion-fuelled grooves, & wraps heartfelt, profound lyrics around them.

Whilst Will waits for the world to "play catch up" on his own stuff, he drops only the finest of his originals in amongst some great covers, to provide the key components of a great evening's live music entertainment.

Will stamps his own distinct signature across his whole repertoire, kicking loose & singing live over backing track accompaniment on some tracks, whilst revelling in a pure live keys & vocals mash up on others.

Will’s been previously described as “Sting, Paul Carrack and Seal combined”. Will’s also been likened to Gavin DeGraw and Maroon 5 along the way, & his influences include soul supremo Bill Withers + the all round funkster legend that is Stevie Wonder.

On the live front, Will's been busy clocking up solo gigs whenever & wherever he can. 2009 saw him rattling off a song or 2 at open mics, doing festival slots, taking part in talent contests, & dipping his toes into full evening gigs. 2010 was more focused on the latter, & during 2011 there’s an even sharper focus on spreading his wings with his “soul shakedown” across the Cambs, Beds and Herts region.

Will has:

* been writing since 1989

* been signed to indie label Carrera in the past

* had his own band Makower for 3 years

* won the Tomorrow's People Award for excellence in his field

* had his music described by The Boat Race as "soul/funk with a unique flavour...exceptionally polished...musically tight, accessible and soul-stirring”

* won the CCM/Gospel Category of UNISONG a few years back

* had it said of him by Adrian Phelan (music critic) “it's difficult to imagine you've ever heard better as you relish in Will's talent"

* been and still is in music for the love of it, and because his passion won't let him go

* come to the realisation that going solo is the right way to make strides into the future
