WIL’s performances create an energy that can only be understood if you are there. Get your tickets early.
Alberta raised roots rocker WiL’s music is gaining recognition from a string of songs, including ‘Roam,’ flagship anthem to Travel Alberta’s award winning media campaign ‘Remember To Breathe’ or most recently, performing his song ‘Honey Pie’ on the big screen at this years Calgary Stampede Parade, Rodeo and Grand Stand show. His latest album ‘El Paseo’ is nominated ‘Solo Roots Album of the Year’ – Western Canadian Music Awards 2015. No wonder as the ease with which WiL explores a wide spectrum of themes and styles in his songwriting shows a lifetime of fearless musicianship. His tunes are catchy but not overstated – a dynamic performer who effortlessly balances out moments of gritty intensity with those so tender you swear you hear is heart beating through a microphone. As such his live shows have been coined ‘legendary’ – affording him the opportunity to share the stage with such musically diverse artists as Feist, Matt Andersen, Matthew Good & Big Sugar to name a few. Whether speaking to his masterful passionate string-breaking live performance or writing music for film, WiL is in his element – he was simply born to make music.
