Still working on that hot first release.



Will Solomon captivates his audiences by putting all of the letters they never sent to song. Fearlessly vulnerable, using calculated metaphor he invites listeners into his own intimate account of real heartache and hope. With thoroughbreds for neighbors and limestone under his feet, Will grew up in the heart of the Bluegrass State. At 17, he picked up the guitar and moved to the Appalachian foothills to study jazz. In 2006, he headed to Nashville to begin his career as a songwriter.  

Over the six years that followed, Will’s time was divided between writing and performing, both solo and as a guitarist for acts such as Johnnyswim and Holly Williams. 

Between writer’s rounds and co-writes, Will began to unveil the soul folk style that would come to frame many a lyrical works of art. 

In 2012, Will’s creative spirit demanded reprieve from the business persuasion of the music industry. He returned to his Kentucky roots and immersed himself in the influences of those artists that laid the foundation for his music so many years earlier—Bob Dylan, Fleetwood Mac, Otis Redding. Will experienced the same songs and scenery he had known for years in novel ways.

Will developed a new appreciation for the iconic sound of his home state. He began incorporating bluegrass instruments into his own work. These influences can be heard in his forthcoming album, The Pelican & The Herring, set to be released March 2016.
