Not one for school, WiL's youth consisted of skateboarding and holing himself up in his room listening to music; everything from Chet Atkins to ACDC but It wasn’t until 1998, after hearing the flagrant use of an overdrive pedal on an acoustic guitar in Neutral Milk Hotels ‘In an Aeroplane over the Sea, an album and song that stunned his musical senses, that he really started refining and defining his live sound and his style, both of which would command rave reviews from critics yet somehow would fall slightly flat on his earlier recordings. Not one to settle, WiL spent the next 10 years acquiring the skills to be able to produce his own music, subsequently enabling him to retain full artistic control.
WiL is first to maintain the key to life, to your career, to your relationships is to use your failures as tools to improve, to be accountable. "That is really how I go about my life - f**k up move forward". If you can do that it’s half the battle, maybe more than half. I'm a late bloomer and I am OK with that. More than OK.
WiL is currently working on his 7th studio album<br>
