What happens when you combine a fiery frontman with mad acoustic guitar skills and a cool as a cucumber supa drummer? You get the Indie folk rock duo known simply as WiL.

Not one for school, ‘Billy’s’ youth consisted of skateboarding and holing himself up listening to music; everything from the country twang of Chet Atkins to the raucous punk sound of The Sex Pistols 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’, that he really started refining and defining his sound and playing style, mesmerizing listeners with an unusual strumming technique while creating lush, fat and full acoustic guitar sounds that have since become signature to the live experience’ but it has taken the better part 20 years to get there and he’s still not done. Fastidious. Yes. Meticulous. Yes. A.D.D.?? Probably, but it’s precisely this that has landed him some pretty cool gigs. Standouts include opening for soul legend Mavis Staples, Canadian Indie darling, Feist and one of his music heroes, Ray LaMontagne.
