"I physically grew up in the suburbs of Quezon City, Philippines, but my heart and soul evolved in the concrete jungle of Hong Kong," says singer-songwriter William Elvin -- who in his early 30s is still searching for his soul and chronicling his blurry memories and the eclectic mix of faces that surround him, while juggling a career writing music for Manila's vibrant theater scene while living as a regular resident and office worker in Asia's financial hub.
Drawing from influences ranging from the folk-rock angst of Bob Dylan, to the quirky lyricism of Ben Folds, the melodic grunge of The Smashing Pumpkins, and the nerdy pop hooks of Weezer, William Elvin's songwriting voice is as diverse as his shifting personalities. His upcoming album, named 'Faces and Phases', is a musical and lyrical rollercoaster of emotions and situations: alienation, addictions, obsessions, the innocence and subsequent dangers of love, fear of abandonment, but amidst it all, hope.
William's music has been described as “brilliant” and “soulful, propulsively melodic” by the Philippine Daily Inquirer and “theatrical but authentic” by ABS-CBN News, and his remarkably sincere and genuine performances has filled up a number of intimate venues in Metro Manila and Hong Kong.
