"Will Mendenhall"

Will Mendenhall is one very talented artist. When people around Fort Smith hear Will Mendenhall they ask,” Where has this guy been?” Well the answers is…all over the US and Europe. Living the life of a modern troubadour, he has opened for big names and played the coffeehouses honing his craft. His latest release, Blood of My Blood, is reminiscent of JJ Cale or Paul Brady with the cool jazzy feel of Van Morrison. But comparisons are just not fair as Will has his own style, based in his languid, but oh so expressive, vocals and insightful lyrics. This show will be a very special performance as Will will be recording a new LIVE CD at Second Street Live. This is a first for us…a great Fort Smith artist recording LIVE at Second Street Live. Come out and become part of our recording history. - Second Street Live

"Worth checking out"

"Great turn out for the Riverfront Freedom Festival. New in town artist, Will Mendenhall, played to a captive audience down at Park Place Restaurant and Bar. Playing all originally written music, with a new CD release "Blood of My Blood". The food and music was excellent. "We would recommend Will's music!" You can find out more my visiting his website @ www.willmendenhall.com - Milford Chronicle


The Roswells-first band. Local airplay and in the UK someplace.

Stream of Consiousness-first solo release with local airplay and a touch of Nashville.

The Great Society-#2 solo release. Local airplay. Also, heard it aired in China and Japan although I never received any revenue from that????

Truckstop Poets-Live from Souless Radio America-another band I formed, the only release. With the only airplay it received was our living rooms. (It happens).

Blood of My Blood- My newest release. I am proud of the work and know you will like it. Positive feedback to date.



Influenced by the greats such as Dr. Seuss, Ray Charles, Woody Guthrie and Tom Waites:
As a boy I would read classics, write poems and short stories. Along came the "first guitar", thanks to my parents, and songs were produced. I bounced from band to band searching my course. A personal revelation directed me in to my "own".
Life and Art are fragile, I approach both with reverence.
The songs I write are my gift to impart- Enjoy.
