At the age of 18, Wim Tapley is one of the most ambitious artists in the D.C. area. After growing up as a musician and songwriter, he honed his craft by playing live at all of the bars, restaurants, and small venues in his hometown of South Riding, VA, leading worship at his church, and producing his own music.
Pulling from an incredibly diverse range of influences stemming from a lifetime of being a dedicated music nerd, Wim's ability to seamlessly blend styles ranging from biting Ennio Morricone-esque spaghetti western to tender neo-soul consistently pushes the barriers of his genre-defying sound. After the coronavirus stifled his plans to pursue music as a street performer in Dublin, Ireland, Wim graduated high school early in order to record his first full length LP while under quarantine. His debut album "The Woodlands" is available now, after its release on August 28th, 2020. Wim is currently at work on his second LP.
